What is a Montessori Bookshelf

So what is this Montessori all about? Well the American Montessori Method describes it as an academic system that "fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development—cognitive, emotional, social, and physical."

Our Bookshelf Small quickly became a hit amongst new parents of toddlers and kids that were looking for something stylish, well built and modern. Not only is our Montessori Bookshelf all of that, it is also finished entirely from solid wood and finished with a low VOC oil finish. This is important if you want to control the chemicals in your kids room.

What makes our shelf a Montessori Shelf?

What makes our shelving units Montessori or kid friendly is that they are the perfect height for your precious toddlers to access all the toys and books on them which promotes independent play. Our Montessori Toy Storage is built using traditional joinery - this unit arrives completely assembled - so you don't have to worry about it being wobbly or unsturdy. If that isn't enough to make this a wonderful Montessori shelf for kids, we have more!

We belive in sustainability and taking care of our environment and its precious resources. Our modern montessori shelving unit is amazing but it can evolve with your child or even with your home. Once your toddler is done playing with toys and books, this shelf can become a side table, nightstand or even an entryway shelving unit. That is the beauty of simple and timeless modern design.

Want to learn more about this modern toy and book shelving unit?

For starters, this shelving unit is made entirely with solid White Ash. You won't find veneer, mdf or particle board anywhere. Using this wood species for our montessori shelving units is ideal because its going extinct due to the Ash borer beatle. This means either it dies and or is cut down for firewood or is crafted into beatiful furniture like these shelving units for kids.

After hand turning the legs and machining the solid wood, we use a secret joinery method to make these extra durable. The shelving units are glued up in our factory and ship out fully assembled and ready to use right out of the box! No knock down pieces and fastners to mess around with.
