The relationship with the child is our curriculum.
Children develop great trust in their caregivers through personalized and intimate caregiving activities. As caregivers, we believe that everything we do--how we hold a baby, pick up a child, respond to their cries, talk to a child and others around them--helps the child create an understanding of their value as a person, their place in the world, and how they can engage with the world around them.

Hello! My name is Sarah Beth, I graduated from Community Montessori in 2011, attended college, then got a Foundations Certificate through the RIE Institute before returning here to work in 2015! Since then I have gotten married and had 3 children who all attended The Community Nurtury. I have always loved working with children and truly believe that the world is brightest through their eyes!
I am a CM graduate. I started my job at the Community Nurtury in the fall of 2022. During my time here, I’ve learned a lot - not only from the staff but from the learners as well. I love being outside and sharing my passion of being in nature with the children!
I have been in the education field since 2010. I have my Associates degrees in Early Childhood Education and Liberal Arts. I am fluent in American Sign Language and have worked as a neurodevelopment therapy specialist for children with Autism. I joined CM in 2023 and have two learners currently attending. When I am not in a studio, you can find me sewing clothing, camping with my two giant dogs or tending all my houseplants.
"It is such a gift to not only know that my two babies' basic needs are being met, but that their emotional, social, and intellectual selves are being nurtured as well. I drop them off each day with confidence that they are receiving care that may even exceed what I could offer them at home!"
