Montessori in our house

We have chosen Montessori educational method before our child was born and signed up for Montessori preschool. We were inspired mainly by How to Raise Amazing Child Montessori and howwemontessori blog.

As our daughter was growing we tried to make the apartment space adjusted to her needs (as she stared crawling, walking), changing furniture and remodeling.

Right now we have several Montessori- inspired areas in our apartment
