Our Story

Wildflower Montessori began as the labor of love of our founder, Sep Kamvar. Unable to find a school which combined Montessori education, an inclusive family environment, and a small, responsive school size, Sep was inspired to create his own with veteran Montessorians Mary Rockett and Katelyn Shore. In 2016 Sep worked with Matt Kramer to establish the Wildflower Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization that builds platforms to support the growth and development of Wildflower Schools.
