Here are links to the Montessori Services materials I’ve reviewed (updated in 2015).
From the time I was a Montessori teacher in the 1970s and owned a Montessori preschool in the 1980s, Montessori Services was always one of my favorite Montessori suppliers. Almost all my school’s rugs and trays were from Montessori Services along with a number of practical life activities and card materials. I was never disappointed with Montessori Services as a school owner or Montessori homeschooler. Almost all the materials were in close-to-new condition after years of loving care by young children.
Since I’ve started blogging, I’ve hosted three Montessori Services reviews and giveaways. Like before, I’ve never been disappointed with the quality of Montessori Services materials. Be sure to check out each of my review posts to find out more about some of the Montessori Services materials that are wonderful for schools and homeschools. Parents using Montessori principles at home will also find much to offer through Montessori Services or its partner site, For Small Hands, which specializes in child-size tools and materials for families.
