Welcome to Magnolia Blossom Montessori, a Wildflower School in Louisville, Kentucky.

Magnolia Blossom Montessori provides a high-quality environment for children 1-6 years old. Our space welcomes the whole family into our fold, allowing each parent, teacher-leader, and child to live to their fullest potential at home and in the community.

We are a member of the Wildflower Network of schools. 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.

Commitment to Equity

One of the central principles we practice at Magnolia Blossom Montessori is the Wildflower principle of equity. Toward that end, we intentionally build community with families we think best support the school in expressing its purpose, regardless of families’ financial means.

Wildflower schools exist within the context of the segregation and inequity of our communities and society, and where there is no justice, there can be no lasting peace. As Montessorians, we believe children’s unique capacity to adapt to their environment makes childhood the key to the long-term improvement of society and our greatest hope for a more peaceful world. We cultivate that capacity in schools that include people of different racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds and seek out ways to make our schools more accessible to all families; we celebrate diversity and foster inclusivity; and, we consider the unique opportunities and challenges facing every child and commit to giving each student what they need to find their purpose and fulfill their potential. We recognize the significance of this undertaking, and we work to transform ourselves, our school communities and our broader society to bring about our vision for justice and peace.

One to Three Years

Children from birth to the age of three are in the period of the absorbent mind.  During these years, more than 80% of the brain is formed, and children soak up their environment like a sponge, learning what it is to be a human in their culture, time, and place. Magnolia Blossom Montessori provides an environment specifically suited to your child’s development, practicing principles that align with the most important family values of equity, unconditional love, and peace. These years create a foundation for life.

Three to Six Years

From about 3-6 years, the child enters the conscious stage of development. Their mind still absorbs information easily, but now they will consciously seek out different learning experiences. The scientifically designed, unique Montessori materials help the child learn through hands-on exploration while developing important skills, such as independence, coordination, order, self-discipline and concentration.

Through “grace and courtesy” activities primary children learn how to solve conflicts, how to act politely in social situations, and how to be kind and helpful to each other resulting in a peaceful and caring community.

Group Lessons at Magnolia Blossom Montessori

Every child in the Primary (3-6) program will participate in weekly group lessons. Violins are provided by Magnolia Blossom Montessori. In true Montessori form, the mixed age group provides an opportunity for students who might be more advanced to guide other students. Group lessons are also good for learning how to play together, in unison with others and help reinforce skills learned in private lessons.

​Private Lessons

Private lessons are available after school hours at Magnolia Blossom Montessori,
​with Nia Strings for a monthly rate.

Who We Serve

Children are eligible to join our studio when they turn 12 months old and are toddling. Children attend the Toddler program until the age of 3, at which time they transition to our primary (3-6) program.

Application and Enrollment

To ensure our community thrives, we will balance our community with children of different ages, income levels, race and ethnicity, and individual needs. You are welcome to submit an application and let us know about your interest in enrolling. 

Magnolia Blossom Montessori is an active and intentional community of families. Part of the Wildflower Network, we are constantly evolving as we practice expressing our purpose, individually and collectively. One aspect of this practice is something we define as “discernment;” that is, we distinguish carefully through a thoughtful process of opening oneself to increased intimacy and vulnerability through sensory, cognitive and emotional experience. This is what we are asking you to do as you consider pursuing participation in our community as an enrolled family.



Tuition and fees are contracted for each student on an annual basis. Tuition contributes to the overall cost of educating each child, including teacher salaries, materials, operations, and overhead. Fees are assessed annually to provide the cost of snack, supplies, and activities for each student. Tuition is prorated for children enrolling after the start of the school year. 

To live more fully into our equity principle, we have moved to an Equitable Tuition Model based on Income. Learn more here. We center equity and participate in the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) that provides financial support to help low-income families pay for child care.
We anticipate a cost of living increase yearly.

Magnolia Blossom Montessori School strives for absolute financial transparency, as well as striving to make our school inclusive to families living at all income levels–in the spirit of reflecting the Louisville community and valuing all families, regardless of their means.

Our Principles

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.

Our Network

After the first Wildflower school was created in January of 2014, there was intense interest in the school and the approach. This interest led us to open-source the model and help other family groups and teacher-leaders to create new Wildflower schools. Each teacher-leader at each Wildflower school serves on the board of at least one other Wildflower school, creating a community of schools that are linked by both a shared philosophy and a network of shared relationships.
