Welcome to Our School

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 olds 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.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
Excellent! Love this school and it has FAR exceeded all of my expectations!
Exceeded my expectations for a preschool! I am so happy we found BVM. The atmosphere created by the teachers (and staff) and students is calm and loving.
Great! We love the staff and curriculum!
We absolutely LOVE this school and are so happy that we made the switch a couple of years ago. Our child is flourishing here! They have sparked an absolute love of learning and of school that was missing before. We really feel that all of the teachers care for every student at the school, whether they are in their individual classes or not. We only wish we would have known about Blue Valley Montessori
sooner...We would have made the switch much faster!

Loved the school. Sad to be leaving it for Boston. Definitely the best school my daughter has been to
We love this school! Our son is learning so much and is excited to go to school every single day! We are so grateful to have found Blue Valley Montessori!
The director is extremely kind and considerate and attentive to any questions or concerns at any day or time no matter how busy she may be. Very impressed. Her staff is kind gentle and caring and welcoming to our children and there is little more we can ask for at this age.

Certifications: AMI Montessori Certified

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 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.
