In Montessori, the purpose of the weaning table and chair is to foster a young child's independence during meal times. A table and chairs at the child's height tells them "you are your own person in this world."
Learning to self-feed, which develops confidence and enhances their sense of autonomy and self-sufficiency.
Establishing a consistent mealtime routine, which appeals to a young child's need for order.
Developing the senses. With the introduction of solid foods, the child explores and discovers a variety of new tastes, textures, smells, etc.
Strengthening fine motor skills. The child will use their hands or child-sized utensils to feed themselves.
Allows for more social interaction with siblings, who can now sit together during snack or meal times.
Because this table and chair grow with the child and they will use it for many years, the child develops a sense of ownership and responsibility for them - "These are MY things and I will take care of them."
What Makes Our Weaning Table and Chair Different from Other Child-sized Table and Chairs on the Market?
Our weaning table and chair have been specially designed to suit a young child's physical needs:
The size of the chair allows the child to sit with their feet flat on the ground and the sides of the chair provides more comfort and security.
The height of both the chair and table is adjustable to grow with the child. In infancy, the chair will have a higher back and sides to help keep them upright and sitting comfortably. As the child grows, the seat is raised, and they will have more room to move their body.
The quality construction and weight make this table sturdier and less likely to tip, compared to other, cheaper children's table and chair sets.
The chair has a small handle built into the back so children can move it independently.
