Montessori schools will often get the question: “How early can you start using the Montessori Method?” The answer is: from birth. There are various ways to set up an infant’s bedroom that mimic the environment of a Montessori classroom. The idea is that “work” is readily available, organized, and that each tool serves a specific purpose in developing a skill.
Our infant classroom here at RedRose Montessori reflects many characteristics of our other “traditional” Montessori classrooms: pleasing, calm environment, soothing music (optional), work that addresses skills we wish the student to develop, natural colors, etc.
Ideally, this creates a welcoming, happy environment that encourages a child to follow their natural instinct to learn and explore.
