Montessori Home -- 5 Things You Can Do Today

Much like in a Montessori classroom, creating a prepared environment at home is essential in assisting your child’s development. At home, simple changes can be made to aid in your child’s independence and concentration. 

5 easy things to do today to create a Montessori home. Simple changes to give your children independence!

But, sometimes it can feel overwhelming knowing where to start to make the necessary changes in your home! It can feel like we have to make all the changes at once and then we end up not taking that first step toward independence. So, I've made a couple lists that I will be sharing over the next couple weeks with 5 steps you can take today! Here are my first suggestions: 

  • Put a selection of books in a basket in an accessible location. 


  • Add a slip-resistant stool to your bathroom


  • Hang a low hook in your child's bedroom to hang a coat, robe, or other clothing item

  • Store your child's shoes in a basket, low shelf, or tray in your entry way


  • Place a small pitcher of water and a cup at your child's height
