Have you ever thought about a low bed for children to put in the bedroom? It is not just a piece of furniture, we are talking about a beautiful educational choice. MONTESSORI CHILD LOW BED
Low Children’s Bed: Learning Autonomy
Offering your child a low bed, without sides, can become an educational and growth moment for everyone: children and parents.
The low bed is also called a Montessori bed , as it is inspired by the educational principles that guide Montessori games and products , useful for applying the method devised by the educator, pedagogist, philosopher, doctor, child neuropsychiatrist and scientist born in 1870.
All Montessori products are oriented to the natural development of the child, and the low bed has some useful features to pursue this aim:
- the little one can get on and off without the help of an adult;
- the descent and ascent take place in maximum safety, since the height of the bed is suitable for children;
- the absence of bars or sides, allow the little one to master the environment that surrounds him, without obstacles.
Complements For The Montessori-Style Bedroom
Here are some suggestions for a child-friendly bedroom.
The low cot is a fundamental element for a Montessori-style bedroom, as it guarantees the child the freedom to lie down and get up, being able to look around and not experiencing the cot as a prison or a place from which to try to escape putting himself in danger of bad falls. .
An alternative to the bed is the futon, a bed with soft sides and only 15 cm high.
Open shelves, at child’s height and made of natural materials. These are the furniture in which to store games and/or books that can be taken at will by the child without the intervention of an adult to help them reach the desired objects.
In this way the little one is autonomous when he takes something and takes responsibility because he can store his own games and books independently.
The multipurpose bench changes the height of the seat or turns into a coffee table, taking advantage of the three heights available in a single object: 17, 22 and 31 cm. In this way it follows the growth of the child and his needs which can be sitting down or having a foothold for play, reading or creative moments.
ENVIRONMENTS FOR SYMBOLIC PLAY
Environments for symbolic play : whether it is a knights or elves’ tent, a tent in the shape of a house or farm, or an Indian tepee, the environments for symbolic play enormously stimulate the creativity of the little ones, interactions with brother or friends, or favors the desire to isolate themselves a little to read or play alone.
