You’re sitting down for a family meal, and your little one is in their clunky high chair, barely able to reach the table. They’re watching everyone else eat, feeling left out and frustrated. It’s a scene that many parents are familiar with, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Enter the Montessori high chair. Designed to be adjustable and functional, these high chairs allow your child to sit at the same table as the rest of the family, promoting independence, inclusion, and social skills. We’ve been loving the Montessori approach and while it is usually recommended to use a Montessori weaning table and chair, Montessori high chairs are a great option if you want to all eat together at one dining table.

These high chairs are designed to be used for an extended period of time and Montessori families like them overall. Unlike a traditional high chair that is only suitable for infants and young toddlers, Montessori chairs can be adjusted to accommodate your child as they grow. This means you can invest in a high-quality Montessori high chair that will last for years, rather than having to constantly replace it as your child gets older.
We do also like our weaning table since with weaning tables kids have their own space to eat, craft, and do activities. But it’s also nice to have the option to eat all together at the table as a family and give the kids freedom of movement.
