About Us

Our All-Star Staff

We know that what makes a successful school and happy, well-adjusted children are happy teachers who enjoy coming to school each day to educate and care for your children.

Selecting caring and qualified staff is important to us. We carefully interview each potential teacher, check their references and conduct a background study. All of our staff are experienced with children and genuinely love to work with them. We work together as a team, and all of our staff are “cross-trained” to be knowledgeable and comfortable with all age groups. Because our goal is to maintain a warm, home-like environment, the children have the opportunity to get to know all of the teachers and relationships are cultivated and nurtured throughout the child’s attendance at All Stars Montessori. Our staff is versatile and flexible and always ready to adjust with us as we grow and hire new staff.

​As always, our teachers meet, and in most cases, exceed the State of Minnesota’s requirements for staffing.

Want to join our amazing team?

It is our goal to maintain a team of people that enjoys working with children and is eager to provide them loving care and quality early childhood education experiences that will lay a lasting foundation for their future.

“A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite a love of learning and instill a love of learning.”

Why Our Staff Love Us

“I love that we are able to give our teachers creative freedom over their classrooms allowing them to make their classrooms personalized to the children in their class. You will find children’s family pictures on the walls, fun pictures of the children learning, etc; they know the classroom belongs to them. Plus, with Montessori we are able to create works that really interest the children! Got a child that loves dinosaurs? We can create some really fun and engaging materials with dinosaurs as the theme. This is just the tip of the iceberg, All Stars is a great place to work!

I love working at working at All Stars because I get to watch all the children’s personalities flourish as they learn who they are and who they want to be. All stars has become a second family to me!

It has been an amazing experience being a part of the All Stars Montessori Family.  I love how we are so close while helping raise these precious little kiddos! It takes a village to raise a child and that is what we are:)
