Who We Are
Wildflower is an ecosystem of decentralized Montessori micro-schools that support children, teachers, and parents. Wildflower aspires to give all children and families the opportunity to choose high quality, beautiful learning environments as they follow life’s unfolding journey.
Blurring the boundaries between home-schooling and institutional schooling, between scientists and teachers, between schools and the neighborhoods around them. At the core of Wildflower are 9 principles that define the approach.
A growing number of shopfront Montessori schools have been started using the Wildflower approach. View our network of schools and let us know if you would like to start a Wildflower School in your community.
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.
