In a Montessori home children can be independent in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, they just need the right guidance and tools. Resulting in leaving the home, going to bed, eating, and dressing peacefully.
There are many lovely resources on the web and in books on setting up a home for your child’s independence, but it’s all very general by age. I can help you refine the tasks and tools to suit the space you have, the skills of your child, accommodate siblings and the level of upkeep you would like. I can save you hours of internet searches and months of trial and error. We can get it right, straight away.
In a few two-hour sessions we can make over an area of your home and ensure you feel confident in teaching your children how to use the redefined space to further their independence and your home’s harmony.
