What We Do

The heart of Wildflower is the work our children, families, and Teacher Leaders do every day to support children’s growth and development. Everything else we do is to support that work happening across Wildflower schools and that will be happening in future schools.


Supporting schools is a community-wide effort. Teacher Leaders support each other directly in small multi-school Teacher Leader groups and through serving on the governing boards of other Wildflower schools. They play important roles in advising, mentoring, and coaching Teacher Leaders as they progress through the School Startup Journey. They share their wisdom with each other, by sharing the tools they’ve created and responding to each other’s questions.
