Montessori is a style of education developed by Maria Montessori over 100 years ago. You may have heard of Montessori pre-schools? If you have let us know in the comments section, the Puffy team would love to hear your opinion or experience.
The waiting lists for Montessori pre-schools can be huge; independent thinking style schools are trending all over the world.
Montessori principles are built around helping children form and thrive in natural interests as opposed to traditional educational principles where learning occurs from prescribed methods.
These principles are now becoming quite popular at home before children even start school. It all starts in the place where we spend most of our time at home: the bedroom.
To best prepare children for open-minded and independent thinking, the Montessori-style bedroom is emerging as a trend in homes all around the world.
You might be wondering what it means to take this style of education and turn it into an interior design idea. Well, creating a Montessori bedroom is all about empowering free-thinking in how your child sleeps and plays.
If you want to use this approach, you need to ditch the crib and closely consider the layout of the bedroom. Montessori bedrooms feature low floor beds allowing children to feel free to wake up and sleep in an open space.
Montessori styling also aims to eliminate clutter and objects which may cause stress for the child such as hard-to-reach play benches and copious amounts of toys.
Clutter is distracting and can overwhelm young minds who tend to play with one a few of their toys anyway. Another suggestion experts make about Montessori styling is to use what they create as decoration rather than investing in large paintings or décor that children have no connection with.
