As I was scrolling down my Facebook feed, as I so often do, a series of pictures caught my eye. And to make matters 1,000 times better, the pictures were baby themed (not exactly helping my baby fever!). Cassidy, a former co-worker and friend, shared with us photos of her Montessori-inspired nursery.
I was familiar with the Montessori teachings and I was 100% up to speed to nurseries, but I wasn’t entirely sure how a nursery could be “Montessori”, so to speak. So, I got to Googling. In short, a true Montessori nursery is a baby’s room that is set up with child-safe and child-centric furniture and decorations. Everything in the room should be safe and accessible to the child. This encourages autonomy and fosters a child’s natural love of learning and curiosity.

Below are some pictures of Cassidy’s super cute, Montessori-inspired nursery!
It was Dr. Montessri’s belief that children can and will teach themselves if given the opportunity. To foster learning, creativity, and independence, children should be free to move about in a “prepared environment”, in which the children freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities. That being said, you can turn any space in your home into a Montessori space!
This approach can take some time and dedication to implement, but with lots of creativity, a few Google searches, and lots of patience, you too can create a Montessori-inspired nursery for your little one! Just remember, no amount of baby-proofing can substitute a responsible, attentive care provider!
