The light, the details, the floors! I love everything about this room! I also love that it incorporates some adult elements, because we all know how much newborns need their loving adult!


I love the pull-up bar and the bright space! And the stars on the carpet! It just looks like a really fun place for an older baby.

Isn't this the greatest floor bed? I love it's simple beauty and the pop of color. Plus that sheepskin rug is just so inviting! 


This room has some RIE influence and it looks awesome! This would have been Nora's climbing dream as a baby. I love the gross motor opportunities here.

I love the floor bed solution here! That is the IKEA toddler bed without legs! And, how great the baby can get out and explore right away!


This little play shelf is so beautifully organized. Just a perfect amount of toys made accessible to the baby! And, is that tiny crochet pink tower is killing me!

This shared toddler-infant space is just so calm. From the art on the walls, to the shared table it looks like a wonderful place for siblings to hang out!

Nowadays all parents want to develop the brain of their child with various ways. No child takes birth without brains, it means each child has different abilities, So parents should understand this thing in a great manner. I choose Montessori toys for my little daughter so I ordered it from "Kidadvance Montessori". They are quite different from the ordinary one. It is known since it gives a wide space to students learning without stepping out of their comfort zone.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2019

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure!

2019 UPDATE: This post has been updated to include a variety of brands and new product finds! Just a reminder that no one child will be interested in all of this or needs all of this. These toys are just here to spark ideas and give you a feeling for some Montessori-friendly options available! 


So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. 


First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created to…

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me. 
This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable. 

As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help, we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps me remain fle…

Which Open-Ended Toys are "Worth it?"

As a Montessori parent, I try to provide a mix of materials in our home to engage my kids! That work that will spark joy, concentration, and repetition. It's not always an easy task, as Maria Montessori said, "Life is mysterious...only the choice of life can choose the work that the child truly needs. Therefore, the teacher respects this mysterious process and knows to wait with faith." So, there does sometimes feel like there is a bit of trial and error when it comes to choosing materials that your children need. 

For us, the right balance is easier to find when I spend time deeply observing my children. Watching their interests, sitting on my hands if I have to, letting them struggle a little with things, and letting them get bored. And what I have personally found is that here at home, a combination of open ended materials and more structured work have been the right balance. Open ended toys wouldn't necessarily be found in a Montessori classroom, but they are perf…
