Montessori Kitchen Areas 18-months to 5 Years

How we Montessori - Montessori Kitchen Areas from 18 months

Take a peek into our Montessori kitchen areas through the years starting at eighteen months. As the children get older we naturally move things around. You will see a lot of the same materials just in different locations. It's fun to look back! 

Above our food preparation area from 18 months, including a drinking station.  

Montessori Kitchen Ideas at How we Montessori

We put low side table near our kitchen for pouring drinks and serving food. There is a small (bar) refrigerator near our kitchen to store the children's snack, it's nice and easy for them to access independently. We have a low hook near the dishwasher for a small/child sized tea towel. We also want our children to be involved in composting so our bokashi composting system is kept in an accssible kitchen cupboard.
