The living room is the hub of our home. We’ve got an open plan so it is plenty of space. We don’t need a separate “play room” for Mia because we spend most of our time in the living room, and she wants to be where we are. I intentionally devoted all of the low shelves to Mia’s toys, so we can create ”an environment of yes’s.”
There is nothing more important in Montessori than respect for the child, and with that, there is no greater respect than the Prepared Environment. Somewhere they can keep their things independently, neatly and in a reachable space. Mia’s got essential kitchen tools that she uses everyday and independently.
Mia’s bedroom is comfortable and simple. She has easy access to clothes and child size mirror at the child’s eye level so she can check out her style. Also she has a small chair with a brush and porcelain pot with hairbands and hair clips. There is also a book shelves and reading corner.

And, that’s it!
