This is Annika (2 1/2 years) getting ready in the morning at her washing station. This space exemplifies what I love about Montessori. Function and beauty. This space is functional and practical. The mirror is at the perfect height, Annika can easily see herself. The bowl and jug are at the right height. Annika can reach her lotion and soap. The space is beautiful with a lovely adorned mirror and a vase of flowers. Every detail has been thought through. This space wasn't designed for Annika but with Annika. It's also the sweetest washing station/care of self area I've ever seen.
Thank you to Jill for sharing this photograph with us.
