Sarah had a dream to start a school that combined two of her passions: Montessori and Christian education. She started the first Christian Montessori Preschool in Colorado in 2002. Sarah fell in love with the Montessori method of teaching.
The individualized curriculum and beautiful hands-on materials felt revolutionary even though they had been around for 100 years. She loved how it allowed you to meet each child right where they were at and take them as far as they could go. Sarah wanted to help make the Bible come alive for children and connect them with the love of their Savior at an early age. In addition to her role as Director, she is also the lead teacher for the Butterfly class.
In 2009, Sarah’s sister, Deborah, moved back to Denver from New England to partner with her and take this program to the next level. Deborah has always had a passion for working with children and is so happy to have found what she believes is the best method of teaching. Also the Tadpole class lead teacher, Deborah loves how Montessori shows respect for each child, fosters their individual interests, and nurtures their independence.
