Montessori Home Environments for a Five-Year-Old

Work Shelves at How we Montessori

As our children get older our home environments get more diverse. Often Montessori infant environments look really similar but as the child gets older we tailor the environment to their individual needs and preferences. Today I'm looking at some of our home environments for Otis at five years!

Toaster Oven  Baking Area at How we Montessori at Five Years

At five years we gave Otis access to a little baking area, he can put his electric skillet here and bake using the toaster oven. It has preset programs (with automatic turn off) so he can use it independently while we always supervise from a distance.

Our outside environment includes a climbing rope, swing, rope ladder and child's hammock.

LIght Table at Five Years

At five years we also set up a light table!  

I didn't take a complete picture of his wardrobe at five years but it is the same as it was when he was four (and here at three). The children's bathroom hasn't changed very much, you can see it when he was three here
