Announcing the Continuation of the NAMTA Archives and Updates to Our Online Store

In response to the many requests to keep our publications, media, and archive access available, NAMTA has recently completed a full inventory and review of our publications. Recognizing the value and legacy of NAMTA media to the international Montessori community, the NAMTA officers intend to continue offering our publications, videos, and access to the NAMTA Montessori Archives.  These products can all be easily browsed and ordered through our online store. NAMTA’s job list and school directory will also continue on our website with school listings being free to list and to browse.  

Our commitment to continuing the availability of our publications includes reprinting select titles to maintain stock. We are planning to reprint Montessori Children’s House: An Introduction and The Montessori Elementary: Continuing the Journey in early 2021 so schools can have them available for families. Our popular parent education booklets will now all be priced at $12 each:

  • Montessori Children’s House: An Introduction 

  • The Montessori Elementary: Continuing the Journey

  • What Is a Montessori Toddler Community?

  • In a Montessori Home

A 10% discount will be applied to bulk orders of 25 or more individual titles.

The NAMTA officers have also decided to make more back issues of the NAMTA Journal and the NAMTA Quarterly available for purchase. Except for a few special editions of specific journals, all back issues will be priced at $12. Training centers will receive a 20% discount on all orders.  

Preserving the great treasure of our Montessori archives has been a priority over the past few months. We have migrated and updated the NAMTA Montessori Archives to a new database and platform that will enable easy searching and ordering for all users. The NAMTA Montessori Archive holds over 16,000 individual documents and has served as an invaluable tool for parent-education resources, research projects, school newsletters, teacher development, and the study of Montessori methods and history. The NAMTA Archives can now be accessed and searched for free: We will no longer require subscriptions to search the database. All articles can be ordered directly through the NAMTA store and are priced at $1.00 per page with each order carrying a $5.00 handling fee. Current subscription holders will receive a 10% discount on archive orders through June 2021. 

All of our products can be found at the NAMTA Store. If you have questions, please contact us at

We hope that your Montessori communities are finding meaningful ways to reach the families in your programs while supporting the health and well-being of your teachers and staff members. Best wishes for a joyful holiday season.

Jacquie Maughan and the NAMTA Officers: Deborah Bricker, Gerard Leonard, Molly O’Shaughnessy and Sarah Werner Andrews
