Welcome!

 Waseca is a small non-profit company out of Athens Georgia dedicated to environmental education. Self published and hand built, we have been making Montessori materials of paper and wood that teach geography by biomes and integrate language with cultural studies for twenty years.

Waseca is also home to the rainbow reading program and the accompanying rainbow biome readers. Our material designs are original and aesthetically pleasing with the intention of capturing the child’s interest and beautifying the classroom environment.
Proceeds from the sale of materials go to the Waseca School where the doors are open to a diversity of families.
