We, at Cambridge Montessori Pre-school, have been buying materials from Roberta and Montessori Downunder for the past eight years; the quality and precision of her equipment, and her attention to detail, is second to none. As she is a Montessori teacher, she understands exactly what is required for classroom materials. We couldn't do without Montessori Downunder!

Roberta has worked closely with us to create specific materials to fit our teaching and learnin g requirements.

Since opening in 1998 Montessori Children’s House Wanaka has consistently sourced materials from ‘Montessori Downunder.’ Roberta’s commitment to quality is one of the reasons I return, the ability to make anything you happen to suggest on any subject is another and this is all delivered with boundless enthusiasm and friendship. In my experience I have found that if Roberta can’t source it no one can!

Roberta's materials play a key role in our classrooms. Over the years we have developed our Science and Culture areas so that we can offer our children the chance to engage deeply in the Cosmic curriculum.
Montessori Downunder has always provided interesting materials for the children, consistently working very hard to find things that suit our needs as a school and that suits the local environment.
