Here are some quick basic ideas for incorporating Montessori principles at home, to help with consistency if your child is attending a Montessori program during the day. These ideas are great to help children gain independence and self-confidence regardless of where they spend their daytime hours. In my house, there is a “classroom” and then there is the rest of the house. For my own children there is no difference, except that certain parts of the house are inaccessible to them while other children are in the home. Not only do these ideas benefit the children when they are put in place, they will also benefit everyone in the home and help create respectful relationships as everyone has a role and works together.
