Elementary and Nido Guides


Nature's Way Montessori

Nature’s Way Montessori, in Napa CA  is opening a new Elementary and Nido Classroom. (Fall 2020) We are seeking charismatic, experienced Guides to help us create the programs.

The Nido Guide will create and oversee the program for 6 infants (8wks-12m) and 10 toddlers (12m-24m) and 12 toddlers (24m-36m)   We are seeking someone who is ready to become the Director of Education for this program.

Our Elementary program will offer gardening, hiking, camping, land preservation projects and a new “forest school approach” to Montessori.  We expect the program to grow quickly given these times.  We are seeking a Guide who is ready to take on the challenge of creation and implementation.

Nature’s Way Montessori is a nature-based Montessori program following AMI principles with a full time garden curriculum, hiking and bringing nature into the classrooms.  Our goal at NWM is for every child to leave with a life-long love for learning, the skill and ability to collaborate with others, and the confidence, courage and compassion to excel in life.
