Many of the items on our shopping pages will link you to outside vendors. If you are interested in purchasing anything from us directly, you may do so by adding the item to your PayPal shopping cart by using the "Add to Cart" buttons. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express for online orders only through PayPal. We will accept mail orders with check or money orders only. We do not accept phone orders.

Our prices are low, but our shipping is SLOW!
In most cases you will have a wait of at least 4-8 weeks.
We are a family home-based business and we do not carry an inventory of products, rather we hand-make orders for each item as they are received. Often we will have to order supplies to fill your order and often we have to wait for backorders on supplies from other companies. Montessori is not a "fast food" method of education and neither is my delivery of materials instant. Montessori intended that each teacher make her own supplies. Please understand I am a busy single mother of 8, still homeschooling 4, with 6 still living at home, running a 24/7 daycare servicing another 12 kids through out the week. And when major events happen in our lives as they often do, my communication and delivery is slower still. I offer handmade materials as a ministry and a service, this is not a typical Montessori supply house. This is one woman trying to help others.
NO REFUNDS - All Sales Final
For these same reasons all sales are FINAL. I do not accept order cancellations and I do not offer refunds. If for any reason you are not happy with an item you receive I will offer you an even exchange in merchandise but you will pay all return shipping.
