Welcome to our friends here at home and around the world!

The new coupon code for this Fall (starting early) is Fall2014.

Our family has put together these Montessori curriculum binders from our own Montessori studies and training programs at various times.

While we are AMI trained, we do incorporate AMS exercises where they seem simpler for parents and teachers without formal Montessori training.

For those of you who are just starting off, we highly recommend the Montessori bedroom setup. It requires no purchases, just a paring down of materials in the bedroom along with some streamlining (child-proofing everything, making low shelves available, and so forth).

A lot of parents ask how much equipment they need to buy for different levels. It depends. For younger children, one needs to buy much less, and you can get away with making a lot and buying almost nothing.

By the time your child is ready for our Kindergarten (Primary Year Two) material, it is good to have a few wooden maps, the geometric solids, geometric shapes, the pink tower, brown (or broad) stairs, red rods, number rods, and the beginning math equipment. For children who are ready for long addition through division, we highly recommend the golden bead material because it is really irreplaceable for this type of work.

It is not necessary to buy prepackaged "sets" of Montessori equipment unless you have at least a small school. There are lots of things in these sets that you do not really have to have --- if you have extra money, however, they are really convenient. Whenever we need to buy replacement material, I hunt around for deals online. We have links on our blog to sites we use, and I'll add to them whenever we find someone new and good.

Good luck as you introduce Montessori to your home or school!

Shipping overseas: Apologies in advance for the shipping prices. We actually lose a bit of money on each overseas package because the US Postal Service has increased rates so very much over the past few years.
