Turning one-years-old is such an exciting milestone in a child’s life! A child is celebrating their first trip around the sun and all of the amazing growth they’ve made cognitively and physically up until this point in their lives.
Welcome to the Montessori Parent’s practical guide!
Here you’ll discover all things Montessori and Montessori-inspired. We share ideas and inspiration for Montessori-aligned activities, sensory play and toys, books, furniture and weaning information.
Encouraging our children’s creativity and imagination with open-ended play will help their mental, social, and emotional growth. The Nugget couch (or its alternatives) provides our little ones with endless play possibilities, apart from being a comfy couch. Since the sofa is already one of the most played-on furniture by toddlers, a Nugget alternative provides a safer way to keep them sufficiently occupied.
If you’re looking at adopting the Montessori method for your newborn, Montessori baby mobiles are an easy and effective way to start. From keeping your baby happily engaged to contributing to the development of their visual and tactile senses, Montessori mobiles are one of the first essentials to consider for your newborn’s movement area.
Essentially, our children want to do what we do, including everyday self-care. By setting up Montessori self-care stations at home, we can provide them the space and access to independently complete their daily routines. Not only does this help them build their self-confidence, but it also creates independence in everyday tasks.
Toddlers love helping out or just hanging out with you in the kitchen. A Montessori learning tower provides them with a safe way to access the countertop and lend a hand in cooking or other kitchen tasks. It is handy to have one for those who practice Montessori at home or otherwise, and it helps build confidence and responsibility at a young age.
Providing our little ones with quality education right from their pre-school days involves making an informed choice of the early childhood education approach suitable for them. For many of us, this means researching educational philosophies and narrowing them down to those that are the right fit for our family. In this article, we compare two popular and effective approaches; the Montessori method and Reggio Emilia approach.
Understanding the Montessori planes of development is key to unlocking your kid’s true potential. So, let’s tackle them one by one!
“A sensitive period refers to a special sensitivity which a creature acquires in its infantile state, while it is still in a process of evolution.” Dr. Maria Montessori refers to a temporary interest that typically appears in a child’s first six years (the first of the Montessori stages of development).
The first six months of a child’s life is such an exciting time, both for new parents and caregivers and for newborns experiencing this wonderful world for the very first time!
Everything is brand new and awe-inspiring for infants. From the moment they are born, babies have an innate curiosity and a desire to begin exploring and understanding the world around them.
