Who We Are
ExcellED Montessori Plus is a community of educators and thought leaders who are passionate about furthering the early childhood learning. We exist because we feel early childhood education requires disruption and adoption of new, innovative teaching methods that personalize instruction for each child’s 360-degree development.
The school is scheduled to open in San Antonio/Fair Oaks in January 2019 with the construction of the school already underway! We’re interested in hiring experienced, Montessori guides, as well as innovative and passionate preschool teachers who are ready to implement dynamic, instructional strategies that will truly meet the needs of each student.
