Welcome!

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

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.

Importante!!!

You may notice that some of the wooden products on the site are temporarily unavailable. We are in the process of moving locations and our wood shop will be out of commission until late February. Please check back then. Thank you!
