The Montessori Peace Corner

The Montessori Peace Corner is an aspect of design that is encouraged in every Montessori classroom.  Though it is not original to the Montessori Method, it has been adopted as part of the theory.

The Montessori Peace Corner can be created to meet the specific needs of students in the classroom. It can also be applied to a Montessori homeschool environment or a Montessori home in general.

The Montessori Peace Corner can be particularly helpful when you have children with special needs in the classroom or at home.  It provides a place for the child to go to calm and regulate himself when needed.

This post is filled with inspiration for your very own Montessori Peace Corner.  You will note every Montessori Peace Corner is different.

Our Peace Corner


Our Montessori Peace Corner was created to meet the various needs of our children with special needs. It contains a comfortable place that is dark and quiet if needed.  Each child has a bin for their sensory oriented anxiety kit.  Each kid also includes at least one book.

Books About Peace


In many peace corners teachers and parents may choose to have books about peace for children to read and look through.  Looking at a book that encourages peace can help a child calm down when upset.  These are some of our favorite books about peace.

2.  Whoever You Are
3.  Somewhere Today: A Book of Peace
4.  Peaceful Pieces: Poems and Quilts About Peace

Anxiety kits can also be extremely helpful to include in a peace corner, especially for children with special needs.  The posts below include some of our favorite resources.
