Many times we prepare the arrival of the baby and we go crazy buying an infinity of things so that he feels comfortable in his new home. However, there is something that we are not doing quite well in terms of conditioning the environment of the little ones.
The Montessori method is based on an environment designed from the perspective of the baby and the child, more comfortable, more accessible and that allows him to move freely through his personal space. We analyze the advantages of decorating the child's room according to the Montessori method.
What is the Montessori method
The Montessori method is known as an alternative educational system with excellent learning outcomes for children of all ages. From its birth, the Montessori pedagogy contemplates the development of the baby according to its specific needs and promoting its autonomy.
The basis of the Montessori method in early childhood education is experimentation. Each child has different qualities y and different skills que that in a more stereotyped educational system they can not develop. And in this belief that is giving excellent results we find that the environment of the child must also be appropriate to the Montessori method. How to decorate the child's room with the Montessori method Before we go crazy looking for the most sophisticated decoration for the children's room, we should consider looking for other
more adapted to the age and characteristics of the child or baby. The child who grows up in a Montessori room is a freer child, with a greater speed of learning, who learns by experimenting and who uses himself much earlier than other children. It is worth taking into account this type of decoration for the child's room which is also more economic
and natural. - The bed. The bed is one of the main elements of the children's room. The rooms decorated according to the Montessori method forget the cribs or beds with bars that turn children into totally
dependent on the adult at the moment they want to move. That is why they propose beds at ground level so that the child can lie down and get up without needing the help of anyone. - The colors. The colors of a Montessori room must be
warm , that encourage tranquility and harmony in that very personal space in which the child will spend many hours. This use of color will be reflected in a better quality of the baby's or child's sleep. - Furniture.The furniture of a room with Montessori decoration must have a
size adapted to the baby or to the child, which implies that they must be transformed as they grow. The idea is that the child has all their things at their fingertips and can dispose of them as needed. - Floor. The ground takes on special importance in a Montessori room, which must be as warm as possible and
free of objects so that the child walks barefoot as long as he wishes. - Toys. Toys should be within reach of children, without needing to ask dad or mom for one or another toy. The
personal experimentation is the key to the physical and intellectual development of the child and that is why we should not put obstacles to their curiosity. - Walls. The Montessori method recommends placing
sheets and mirrors on the walls of the child's room, but at a suitable height so that he can observe them and observe himself. It has been proven that several sheets crossing the room stimulate children's creativity as well as their observation capacity. Laura Vélez. Editor of Guiainfantil.com
