Welcome to Blue Valley Montessori School in Overland Park, KS! My name is Kimberly Steinke and I am the Director here. I am very excited that you have taken an interest in our school!
Blue Valley Montessori is a culturally diverse school where children explore, develop and flourish at an individual pace. They develop a foundation in language, math, physical and cultural geography, botany, physical science, music and more. We have been proudly providing an authentic Montessori experience to the Overland Park area since 1999. All of our lead teachers are Montessori certified and each classroom has the full range of Montessori materials. Additionally, we provide the very best child care/daycare to local families.
Students range from toilet-trained two-and-a-half-year to six-year-olds. We strive to provide a loving and consistent environment for children with an emphasis on academic excellence. We have grown into a very close-knit community over the years.
The classrooms of Blue Valley Montessori School hum with sounds of happy children. Our family-style atmosphere and genuine appreciation for education sets us apart from other schools in the Johnson County area. Daily, individual lessons are presented to the children; photos as well as weekly reports are shared with the families through our use of the Montessori Compass app. We are also excited to offer live streaming video, to give you a view into your child classroom. This offered our parents on-line access to real time observation windows of their children engaged at school.

Over the last 26 years, I have served as a lead Montessori teacher. During college, while pursuing a degree in psychology, I had the pleasure of working at a Montessori school in St. Louis. I was completely amazed by what I saw. Montessori education has been my passion ever since. I now find myself in a new role as director here at BVM. I am honored to continue serving children and families in this new capacity.

I have been a part of the Blue Valley Montessori family since 1999. I served first as a lead teacher for many years, and last year I took on the roles of Assistant Director and School Educational Manager. I have two children, both who are graduates of Blue Valley Montessori. (They are now 18 and 15 years old)! I truly believe in the Montessori Method of learning and am excited to help lead and assist your children to the love of learning.
