About Us

The Materials Company of Boston has been manufacturing authentic Montessori materials since 1982. Our goal is to provide excellent customer service and to make the highest quality Montessori materials available at factory direct prices. In using the best available materials and the most advanced manufacturing technology we have become one of the largest suppliers of Montessori materials in North America.

When the glass beads were no longer available to the Montessori community in the United States, the Materials Company of Boston developed the individual nylon beads to assure that the Montessori math curriculum continued as designed by Maria Montessori.

Our water-based finishes are non-toxic, environment-friendly, and provide safe and bright colors on all our materials Advanced manufacturing techniques make us the only supplier in the world to offer replacement parts for all our materials, including puzzle map pieces.

The Materials Company of Boston has developed a full line of classroom furnishings, including solid hard-wood shelving with adjustable middle shelves, tables with adjustable legs and chairs. All of our furnishings and cabinets require no assembly. We have recently developed an innovative sink unit for classroom water supply which is complete with two 5 gallon containers for fresh water and waste water; no assembly required.

We continue to expand our materials assortment in response to the needs of the Montessori community and offer custom designs for classrooms as well. All of this, combined with our excellent customer service means that the Materials Company of Boston should be your choice too.
