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!

What beautiful, creative spaces for learning! I visited a Montessori school when I student taught years ago. I love the hands-on learning style! Followed you on Pinterest!
Thank you Kristine.

Thank you Jeanette.
Love it! So many cute areas. Love the shelf in the living room with everything on it – the rainbow puzzle is cute. I also love the play kitchen area. Lots of fun that can happen. And of course, I love your IKEA chairs. I have the pink stools like your white stool. I also have the wooden chairs and also the table that goes with it.
Thank you Julie.

I love this so much!! I imagine our home having a very similar look and feel to it once we buy a house and get settled. A reading corner is definitely a must for us.
Thank you Keating.
