Work with Sylvia
Hi! I’m Sylvia,
Welcome To Our Community!
I am Sylvia Arotin, the Founder and CEO of Guide & Grow. My journey began when I fell in love with Dr. Maria Montessori’s quote about preparing children for life, not just for school. This ignited a vision within me to open my own Montessori preschool and create a movement to support caregivers in raising future generations.
Despite facing the challenges of being diagnosed with a chronic illness called P.O.T.S., I was determined to pursue my dreams. Today, I am proud to lead Guide & Grow, an organization that embodies my passion for children’s learning and development.
At Guide & Grow, we offer a holistic approach that combines Montessori principles, positive communication, positive discipline, and emotional intelligence. Our mission is to empower parents and educators to grow alongside their children, providing them with the practical tools and vital skills needed for nurturing their development.
As the CEO, I work tirelessly to make a global impact in the early childhood sector. Through consulting, curriculum development, professional development, workshops, training, and online events, I collaborate with educators, parents, and organizations to unlock the full potential of the field. Together, we strive to create a future generation equipped with lifelong skills.
With my qualifications, including Montessori diplomas, an International Communications degree, and a Masters in Teaching specializing in early childhood, I bring a wealth of expertise to Guide & Grow. My experience as an international speaker and trainer further strengthens my ability to guide and support caregivers in communication and guiding children’s behavior during crucial moments.
Through my role as Founder and CEO of Guide & Grow, I am dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of children and the early childhood education community. I firmly believe that by empowering parents and educators, we can create a nurturing environment where children can flourish and develop the skills they need for a successful future. Together, let us raise tomorrow’s children and build a better world.
