The Montessori Home: Create a Space for Your Child to Thrive
Calm the chaos and transform your home into a space that fosters curiosity, creativity, and independence.
Too often, the toys, games, and other materials meant to educate young children end up being a detriment instead. If you're overwhelmed and your kids are overstimulated, it's time to reset your space by applying the principles of the Montessori method at home so you can be a calmer, more attentive parent.
Author and certified Montessori guide Ashley Yeh (from Hapa Family) tackles each room of the home and explains how to provide young children with the accessibility they need to complete practical life skills on their own, tapping into their innate desire to "do it myself." Whether your child is an infant, toddler, or preschooler, there are simple and inexpensive changes you can make to foster independence and reduce the stress around mealtimes, bedtime, and leaving the house.
