Our Story

Guide & Grow was born from a vision to bridge the gap between Montessori in the classroom and at home, starting from my local community in Sydney. It’s incredible to see how it has grown into a global movement. My passion has always been to raise a generation of children who are mindful, compassionate, and prepared for life. Montessori is more than an educational method; it’s a way of life that honors the child. Through Guide & Grow, we are collectively revolutionizing the way we nurture tomorrow’s children, paving the path for a brighter, more understanding world.

Sylvia Arotin
Guide & Grow founder

With Sylvia’s inspiring vision setting the stage, Guide & Grow has flourished into a vibrant, global community committed to embodying and sharing the Montessori way of life. Our platform serves as a bridge, connecting families and educators with the tools, knowledge, and support needed to cultivate environments where children are respected, nurtured, and empowered to explore their full potential.

I’m fueled by a vision where Montessori isn’t just an educational choice for some, but a global movement that reaches every corner of the world, accessible to families and educators from all walks of life. Our mission goes beyond mere accessibility; it’s about offering the highest quality of information, straight from the hearts and minds of the foremost Montessori leaders globally.

Within our community, love, respect, and passion aren’t just ideals—they’re the very foundation upon which we build every interaction and learning experience. Here, in this nurturing environment, everyone is encouraged to grow, share, and learn together.

My deepest hope is that Guide & Grow becomes more than just a resource for you—it becomes a wellspring of inspiration, empowerment, and a place where you feel a true sense of belonging.

I find live sessions with Q&A’s among the most inspiring experiences as a Montessorian. If you are looking for peaceful, actionable solutions for the home and classroom rather than mere theory, Childhood Potential has you covered.

This project offers something to everyone, whether they are brand new to Montessori, a veteran, or anywhere in between. There is a growing selection of topics and presenters, and the passion of the organizers really comes through. I sincerely recommend it.

Andrea, Canada

I am always inspired and walk away with at least a handful of practical ideas I put into practice right away in our multicultural homeschool.

Sophie, USA

I tell about your Conferences and Live Talks to all my friends who have young children. I talk about you with my Montessori colleagues. I tell my parents at the nursery where I work as a teacher. I would stand on a mountain and tell everyone. We all need to help educate the next generations if we want peace in this world. Thank you for the inspiration, knowledge and experience you share. Thank you for your hard work!
