The Maitri Album Difference
Our albums are grounded in the AMI/Dwyer approach with the added insight of current research. You can read more about the albums in our blog post on Montessori Manuals/Albums. Learn how they can be used in an authentic teacher preparation program in our blog post on Teacher Education.
Our albums are:
- Cohesive: Unified across the curriculum (sensorial is aligned with math, etc.)
- Brain-based: Infused with the teachings of cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, neurobiology, and MBE (mind, brain, and education)
These albums alone are no substitute for a teacher preparation program.
Choose your Format
You can purchase our albums in three different formats:
- View-only digital PDF on our Google Drive (no printing/downloading available)

Your purchase gives you license to use your file for your personal use. You do not have license to copy, sell, or in anyway distribute/share the printed product or the file itself.
From our Founder
"I am offering these albums because science can not study what is hidden. If we want the Montessori method to be validated through research, we must make the method known to those who would study it. We can look to the success of other manualized programs (like cognitive behavioral therapy) as a model to help improve our teacher education programs."
- Julia Volkman, ALM (Harvard), AMI (3 to 6+)
