Montessori Kitchen Areas 18-months to 5 Years

Take a peek into our Montessori kitchen areas through the years starting at eighteen months. As the children get older we naturally move things around. You will see a lot of the same materials just in different locations. It's fun to look back!

Above our food preparation area from 18 months, including a drinking station.

We put low side table near our kitchen for pouring drinks and serving food. There is a small (bar) refrigerator near our kitchen to store the children's snack, it's nice and easy for them to access independently. We have a low hook near the dishwasher for a small/child sized tea towel. We also want our children to be involved in composting so our bokashi composting system is kept in an accssible kitchen cupboard.

Kitchen shelves with plates and glasses from three years. The top left picture is from our Canberra house and the other images are from our Brisbane house. We used the Fun Pod (top right) from 18 months for the children to work at the kitchen bench.

Above is our kitchen areas from four years. We are still using the bokashi system of composting!

Kitchen areas at five years. Also at five years we introduced a low and child accessible toaster oven for baking.

I hope you've found some useful ideas!
