Montessori education at an early age for new parents


One of the most difficult and wonderful aspects of life is just being a parent. Children are the most valuable gift we can receive.

We do not have much control over anything. We must, however, praise ourselves for accepting this responsibility and accepting responsibility for their growth, health, mental, moral, psychological, and physical well-being. So, we’d like to share some ideas about how to do Montessori with your child at an early age. But remember that age is only a guide, and working at your child’s pace and meeting them where they are, is the best way to go. We hope you will find this list helpful for your children.


1- Lying on a Montessori Floor Bed

Having a floor bed is an essential part of the Montessori method of raising children. Maria Montessori believed that a child’s environment should be properly equipped and furnished for their significant activities. This type of environment necessitates the use of a floor bed.

A Montessori floor bed is exactly what it sounds like: it is a bed that is on the floor! It is a bed that is within the child’s reach and at their level, whether it is an IKEA bed or a mattress on the floor. A Montessori bed is distinguished by the notion that surrounds it rather than by the bed itself. When your children are confined within a crib, their movement and vision are restricted. Giving your child authority and initiative by allowing them to make decisions and learn from their own experiences is the goal of having a floor bed.

In contrast, a Montessori bed allows your children to experience an inviting world full of wonders and adventures. In addition, when it is time to sleep, your child is placed in their floor bed and invited to sleep, not forced to. You walk away; then your child decides whether to move around for a little while or fall asleep.


2- Looking at Easy Wall Arts

Making a lovely atmosphere for your child is an essential aspect of a Montessori environment. This necessitates the use of child-sized furnishings as well as natural materials. However, it also includes hanging art that a child may enjoy. The feeling of a child’s room can be significantly changed by hanging wall arts. However, make sure you hang them where they are visible to your child, such as over the changing table. This can also work for your babies. In the beginning days, babies can see only about 20 to 30.5 centimeters and cannot differentiate tones of colors; hence, one-month-old infants can focus on the black, white, and red colored picture. In the month of two, they can concentrate on primary colors and more complicated shapes.

And, fortunately, the wall arts do not have to be expensive or complicated. We suggest you clear images without any texts. Keep in mind to regularly change these images because changes can keep children’s interest and expose your child to a variety of experiences.

3- Having Water Play

Children at early ages love splashing, especially their feet. It is an excellent way to cool down on a summer’s day too. Water play is one of the most popular activities in early childhood education because it keeps your child cool and entertained. You might be shocked to hear that water play has so many fantastic benefits for childhood development.

Water play includes splashing, scooping, pouring, submerging, and exploring one’s senses with water and objects such as buckets, containers, and toys. Water play helps infants enhance their hand-eye coordination as they learn to pour, squeeze, swirl, and even paint with water. Furthermore, when infants engage in water play, they tend to become totally involved in the activity and can spend hours exploring and enjoying. This can help children focus, and any activity that captures a child’s attention for a long time can help them develop a longer attention span and improve their capacity to concentrate later in life.


4- Looking at Wall Mirrors

The Montessori Mirror is one of the primary products utilized in the early stages of development. Mirrors are attractive for children, and their presence will keep them occupied for a long time. Also, looking at Mirrors is a favorite activity for children. The Montessori wall mirror is a terrific method to get children moving and playing. It allows them to discover their body through visual contact and reaction in the mirror, teaching them about cause and effect as they watch their motions in the mirror.

Take into account the size of the room as well as the playmat. It would help if you chose a mirror that is the same size as one of the playmat’s sides. If your children move forward, they should be able to see themselves do so. Consider purchasing a mirror that they can grow with. The child will outgrow the mirror too quickly if it is too small. Purchasing a mirror every few months will run into the thousands.
