Faculty and Staff – Druid Hills

Each of our Montessori-trained guides has studied both Montessori philosophy and curriculum. All lead Nido (Infant), Toddler, Primary (ages 3-6), and Elementary guides are certified by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), and the Junior High guides have received specialized Adolescent training through the North American Montessori Teachers’ Association. Our guides carefully observe each child’s development in order to use teachable moments to “follow the child” with individualized learning for each child’s own pace.
