Dr. Montessori wrote, “Everyone knows that it requires much more time and patience to teach a child how to eat, wash, and
clothe himself than it does to feed, bathe, and clothe him by oneself. The one who does the former is an educator.”
Investing extra time to show your child how to do things independently will provide him with confidence that no amount of “help” can give.
Setting up a self-care station is one method of empowering a child to participate in washing, brushing, and dressing.
Our hygiene station includes the hygiene/self-care unit and the stainless steel bowl that is removable. It can be bought with or without the mirror (you can either let it rest on the wall or nail it to the wall at your child's height). You can choose to have an electric water pump installed along with 2 labeled plastic boxes (one for clean and one for dirty water). It has 4 hooks for hanging towels or any self-case tools a child might need.
The self-care/hygiene station can be used starting a year and a half old, suitable up to 3-4 years (or even longer!)
