5 Montessori Kitchen Spaces to Love

One of the things I love about Montessori spaces is that there is not a one-fits-all approach to designing spaces. Each Montessori space is it's own unique entity designed to fit the needs of the children using the space. A Montessori space can be created any where, on any budget. And, it makes every one interesting to explore! And, I can't get enough! So, I have to share! Here are 5 Montessori kitchen spaces to love

Each one has it's own unique flavor and set up. Each of these are from Instagram where I could spend hours looking at Montessori spaces!

5 Montessori Kitchens to Love

  1. Melissa's kitchen space is just lovely! I love that it's built on a shelving unit but still completely accessible. I also love the water source solution, how empowering for her boys!
  2. Rachanchan Pedagoxia Montessori's kitchen is just dreamy in all this natural light! Again, a wonderful water source and lots of working space!
  3. Amy at Midwest Montessori's kitchen cabinet is what self-service food station dreams are made of. I love how every detail has been so carefully considered to make it perfect for her children.
  4. Jillian's kitchen space is what Montessori dreams are made of. It's the perfect example of using a play kitchen for real, productive work. I love the choice of cups and pitchers too!
  5. Hilary's kitchen is also a great example of using a play kitchen for real work. This is such a sweet little video of it in action!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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 toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.

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
