read moreBoulder Montessori School (BMS) was founded by parents in 1973 in a one-room church classroom. As the school's reputation and enrollment grew, four parents generously financed a loan to Boulder Montessori School in 1977 to acquire land and build a new school at its current location. This enabled Boulder Montessori School to offer a full-day preschool program and accommodate rising enrollment. In 1982, when parents expressed an interest in opening a toddler program at the school, a new wing of the school was added along with trained toddler teachers and assistants.
