Wildflower Schools, Mid-Atlantic

Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware

Wildflower schools are teacher-led child-centered Montessori microschools (20-30 students) that foster the growth and connectedness of children, teachers, and families as they follow life’s unfolding journey. Our model combines time-tested, research-supported Montessori methods in one-room, neighborhood-nested schools with a strong network of support and thoughtful approaches to parent engagement, intentional student diversity, and teacher empowerment.

Drawing on a proven model, Wildflower began as an idea launched out of the MIT Media lab as a partnership between parents and teachers who envisioned a new, community-centric educational model. Today, Wildflower has become a national movement. We believe in the power of teachers to create intentionally diverse, small Montessori schools where children and families thrive. We aspire to give all children and families the opportunity to choose an academically rigorous, culturally-sustaining, Wildflower educational experience, regardless of means.

Open a School

Wildflower Mid-Atlantic is  seeking educators with a deep commitment to creating and joining schools that are anti-racist and center Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as identity-affirming, joyful, and truly liberatory learning environments.

We believe achieving equity in education is possible when schools are owned and operated by people representative of the communities from which they emerge. As a result, Wildflower Schools are inherent extensions of their communities and are deeply influenced by the Teacher Leaders’ identities. As head of a Wildflower School, you and a partner (co-head of school) will lead all aspects of a one-room school that serves 20-30 children- from coordinating startup to teaching in the classroom and managing day-to-day operations- drawing on tools and resources from The Wildflower Foundation and the support of a network of like-minded colleagues. 

Are you looking to get your Montessori certification?  Check out Get Montessori Trained page and/or reach out to Sunny Greenberg at midatlantic-hub@wildflowerschools.org if you are interested in opening a Wildflower School in your neighborhood and learning more about getting your certification.
