So great! Such a fan of Ashley's work. The illustrations are unique and realistic. They really draw the children in with the details. These are so well made and are a fantastic addition to our classrooms.

We are thrilled with our custom order from Ashley. She created 4-part sets with specific color-coding for our new classroom. The pictures and labels are clear and concise. The choice of font is great as it is how we would print and model writing. The watercolor art is just beautiful, how inspiring for our students to have them as they work with the parts of animals. We feel very lucky to have these and couldn't be happier with Ashley's work and dedication to handmade materials. Thank you so much! We also purchased her composer, artist and poetry files which are equally great. What a great person to work with! We highly recommend Diamond Montessori.

Well made and very sturdy for little ones to use over and over. The colors of the seahorse are gorgeous. Thank you for taking the time to make such quality materials for children.

About

Making Education Beautiful

Diamond Montessori began as a personal project for Ashley, who couldn't find durable, beautiful and high quality language materials for her Montessori classroom and decided to make them herself. Soon her teacher friends were asking for cards and booklets and Ashley decided to reach out to her good friend, artist Katana Leigh.

Together the two came up with the basics of what would become Diamond Montessori. Using Katana's gorgeous original art to give students a beautiful experience of zoology and botany, the two came up with booklets and cards for basic sets such as Parts of a Tree, Parts of a Horse and so forth. As they created these basic starter sets, they became interested in offering even more unique and interesting sets. Using Ashley's classroom and her teacher friends as testers, Katana and Ashley have come up with some fascinating sets that are sure to inspire a love of learning in your students.

Katana and Ashley work together mostly online, as they have spent much of their friendship in separate countries. Ashley will message Katana with a half-thought out idea and somehow Katana comes up with illustrations. They send things back and forth over Dropbox until everything is perfect and then Ashley makes the booklets and cards.
