Our Team

St. Vrain Community Montessori School educators are known as “Guides.” Each classroom has a combination of Lead Guides and Guides depending on the needs of the classroom. 


All Guides provide a warm, nurturing, and safe environment where self-direction is enhanced; independence is encouraged; and individuality is respected. Guides meet the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of both the individual and the group in the classroom environment.


All Lead Guides are either Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) or American Montessori Society (AMS) credentialed for Primary, Lower Elementary, or Upper Elementary.


Combined, the SVCMS faculty possesses over 150 years of Montessori teaching experience.
