Today we would be surprised to see adult-size desks in a classroom. When Montessori realized that child-size classroom furniture would enhance learning, it was a ground breaking idea.
Much later, during her stay in India, Montessori used the East Indian "chowki" (low stool) as tables for children. Like the Indian "chowki" Montessori used, these low tables allow children to sit and work in comfort.
With their 9" and 13" high tabletops, these two floor tables offer similar benefits. Children can write or draw while sitting comfortably on the floor.
Tables expand classroom workspace and help keep the work out of harm's way; both sizes offer presentation surfaces at the child's level.
