Montessori Philosophy & Practice BIRTH TO THREE—A Superior Environment: Furniture
Furniture does not have to be expensive; it can be as simple, or as elegant, as any other furniture in the home. The important thing is that it is of a size and quality to be of use to the child. Solid wood tables and stools, which allow the child to sit up straight with the feet flat on the floor for drawing, playing, fixing and eating snacks during the day, are very important. Not only will good posture be developed, but she will be better able to concentrate and focus in a correct seated position.
