What is the Montessori kitchen helper?
The Montessori kitchen helper tower, also known as the leaning tower, is a raised platform designed to bring a child up to counter level safely. With the help of steps and safety bars, a child can independently, yet securely, help in the kitchen. Helper towers have become incredibly popular in both Montessori and regular households.
Learning towers bring a lot of benefits to a home.
Based on the principles coming from a Montessori education centered around involving a child in everyday activities, the helper tower is perfect for encouraging independence. The helper tower also allows for participation in cooking, teaching a sense of responsibility, respect, and curiosity. Children who have helped in cooking are a lot more likely to eat the meal prepared happily.
