An authentic and accessible Montessori school for all families

Serving ages three to six

Hollyhock Montessori School is a small, nurturing Montessori environment located in Fort Smith, Arkansas.  We believe that purposeful work in community with others supports the joyful and natural development of all learners. Our thoughtfully prepared environment fosters this growth and transformation as the path toward a better world.  

Hollyhock Montessori is a proud member of the Wildflower NetworkWildflower is an ecosystem of decentralized Montessori micro-schools that support children, teachers, and parents. Wildflower aspires to give all children and families the opportunity to choose high-quality, beautiful learning environments as they follow life’s unfolding journey.  


We are thrilled to be the first Wildflower School in Arkansas!

An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking: it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live.

What We Offer


An Authentic Montessori School

The Montessori Method emerges from the belief that children are naturally good, peaceful and curious and that in the context of a supportive environment, all children engage instinctively in the work of self-construction. With appropriate freedoms and the right support, children follow their interests to create rich learning experiences, form peaceful communities, and support and learn from one another. We are dedicated to the preparation of environments and ourselves to support the development of children.


An Intentionally Small Community

As an intentionally-small, community embedded learning environment, our school allows us to serve every child and family in deep and meaningful partnership with their teacher leaders.
