High quality Infant Montessori Environments need quality and appropriately sized furniture and safe learning materials. We can offer you help in selecting these items. Montessori Woods creates their Infant furniture in custom designs and sizes that are constructed with safety and beauty in mind.
Our infant furniture and suggested environments promote independence and self confidence as our babies learn to move freely to feed and care for themselves.
Because motor development is so critical to the intellectual development of the young child, Montessori Woods creates an entire line of specialty furniture that enhances motor skills of the infants. No other infant furniture vendor does it so well using real wood and classic designs. We also offer a complete infant package classroom with a deep 50% discount. Review below for your options.
For a classroom of six infants, you will need ten sturdy, shorter and lower shelves for crawling infants. We suggest that you order shelves flush to the floor, no backs, two levels and no longer than 36" long.
Tables & Chairs
You will want to order several small individual weaning tables and 6" high cube chairs for infants learning to sit up and feed themselves. As the infants learn to sit up well and will not fall from the chairs, you will want to transition then to an 8" seat chair with no sides. We suggest you use small tables with no more than 2-4 babies eating together since they will try to grab each others food.Tables will need a formica top if you plan on cleaning with bleach. The wooden finish does not like the harch cleaners.
Sleeping- If you can use floor beds in your state, we make a stacking bed in porta-crib size. These can stack for ease in cleaning the floor. These are $275 ea including a mattress.The baby can crawl into the bed from the lower side. Our bed is not directly on the floor but is off the floor 2" for air flow.
