Benefits of playroom makeover

Parent Interventions

Playrooms crammed with blinking and buzzing toys, puzzles and games, shelves full of picture books, well-used baby dolls, dress-up costumes and artwork hanging on the walls form the usual paradise for young children. The objects are reorganised by Simone Davies, a Montessori teacher in the Netherlands and author of The Montessori Toddler, as part of applying Montessori principles at home. She spends her days teaching parents and children as to how to apply the Montessori principles at home. Ms. Davies helps parents turn homes into places that are more functional for the family, assist make over kids’ playroom using Montessori educational principles, instil autonomy in the smallest members of the household and create a greater sense of peace. Developed in the late 1800s by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, the Montessori method used educational approaches to help children with emotional and mental disabilities. Today, it has become a widely accepted instructional system that aims to give any child more ownership of their learning.
