Shipping & Returns


Do you ship internationally?
Yes. We ship with either the U.S. Postal Office or UPS, depending on the weight and destination of the shipment. A different shipping rate applies to shipments made outside of the United States.

After I place an order, when should I expect my Montessori materials?
Most orders leave our warehouse within 24 hours of being placed, in some cases, it can take up two three business days for the order to ship out; this time has to be added to the shipping method selected at the time of checkout. For regular shipping and handling methods (UPS Ground/ and USPS services), you can expect your materials to arrive 4-10 days after you place your order, depending on the weight of the shipment and your location. For international orders, we most frequently use U.S. Postal Priority Mail International which takes about 6-12 business days for the delivery.
