Sonnet Montessori, est. 2006, has locations in Prior Lake and Lakeville. Fully relicensed on January 1, 2022 under all new ownership, Sonnet Montessori is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Montessori education in Lakeville, Prior Lake and surrounding areas, while bringing in the best in early childhood education innovations, health & safety practices, and teacher training.
Jessica Johnsen (CEO) and Kylie Schrader (COO) were eager to acquire the schools, having discovered a love for the Montessori method. Since acquiring Sonnet, undaunted by the challenges faced due to the ongoing pandemic, they have dedicatedly worked on building a team of experienced and certified teachers and leaders (including AMS, AMI and NAMC certifications), and built from the ground up an intensive onboarding process that focuses on health & safety, early childhood development, the Montessori philosophy and that defines Sonnet's culture and values.
The owners and Sonnet's regional directors bring a combined total of more than 7 decades of early childhood experience to the table, and more than 3 decades of Montessori experience! They lead with their core values of positivity, innovation, collaboration, communication, nurturing and, of course, what would it all be without FUN!
We believe that early childhood education is one of the most rewarding careers and are committed to taking care of Sonnet's incredible team of teachers and support staff. Our owners are are actively involved at Sonnet, even substituting in the classrooms when they can! We offer a highly competitive benefit package and compensation, employee discounts, paid teacher and Montessori certification, and career growth opportunities.
We are thrilled to not only bring excellence in quality early childhood education and childcare, but also in carrying on the Montessori legacy in your communities.
