Wildflower schools are started and run by teachers who both guide the children in the classroom and administer the school.
The model combines time-tested, research-supported Montessori methods in one-room, neighborhood-nested shopfronts with promising new ideas in parent engagement, intentional student diversity, and teacher empowerment.
Wildflower schools depend on teachers who are passionate about the Montessori method and its benefits for children. The Wildflower Foundation provides resources and tools to streamline the school startup process and help teachers establish and run their schools, creating inspiring leaders and conceptually consistent schools.
If you’re a parent, an engaged community member, would like to support Wildflower financially, or are a teacher interested in running your own school while being part of a supportive network, we want to hear from you!
