Founded in 2016, the Wildflower Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization that supports the Wildflower network of Montessori schools, and works to create excellent educational experiences in our communities.
Wildflower is an innovative, open-source approach to Montessori learning. Its aim is to be an experiment in a new learning environment, 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 lab schools have been started using the Wildflower approach. These schools are listed here.
