Because we are using the Montessori method, one that follows the child’s development, our environments change as the child changes. I showed our infant room and our living area for the infant stage. There were some tweaks along the way, but we made significant changes when he turned one. We did not make them just because he turned one, but because he was at a new stage of development. He was walking confidently and even running. He could walk while carrying things, and he was ready to spend some of his time during the day in training pants.
Reminder of our old room. See the Infant room post for more pictures
and here is the updated room.
The door to the right is his toilet and you can read about the major change to it and see some pictures here.
So not huge changes but the room serves his current needs. I continue to love the simplicity of this room and he loves it too. He knows it’s his room and he enjoys spending time here. Here’s a video of him in his room on a random morning. It shows how the room allows him some independence.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments, questions. Do you change your child’s spaces as they grow?
Live a Good Life!
