Each Montessori classroom is organized in such a way that learning materials are grouped in distinct subject areas. Generally the materials are put on shelves and arranged in their order of complexity. Children are free to move about the classroom, selecting materials to work on, using the bathroom as needed, taking time out to prepare themselves a snack, mopping up spills as they occur and only asking teachers or peers for assistance when they feel that they need it. Children feel that a Montessori classroom is their room, in the truest sense of the word 'their'. It is a child-sized, child-centred learning community that they help to maintain. Their efforts to share the space in respectful ways, promote social and emotional learning.
Every detail has a purpose
Maria Montessori believed that classroom furniture should be made of a natural and warm raw material. Wood serves this purpose perfectly.
Children should be able to move freely in their classroom. They should learn to become independent, and that is why the furniture is made child-sized.
Light and open
The furniture should be open and light in colour so that the material can attract and invite the children to start working.
Light in weigth
The furniture should be light weight so that the children can easily move it around in the classroom.
