Beaver Valley Montessori School

Beaver Valley Montessori School, Inc (BVMS) has been providing exceptional Montessori pre-school programming to Beaver County for 22 years.

BVMS contacted Fazio and Associates to help during a critical time of transition. In 2010 the Founding Co-Administrators retired after 20 years of service and Kris Milbauer took over as administrator. She spent the first two years making tremendous organizational improvements in classroom innovations, parent and community outreach and communication, and administrative efficiencies.

The board and administrators wanted to ensure the school’s legacy for years to come and recognized to do that they would have to take BVMS to the next level! The team has some new and interesting challenges but the first step was to work with the board and staff to envision the ideal future of BVMS.

We immediately worked with board and staff to compile a strategic plan that aligned all key stakeholders, updated brand, identified key financial indicators. We were able to easily see how to delegate work and help staff, volunteers and the board zero in on their responsibilities and results.

In the first six months, we have updated financial reports to get a clear picture of financial health, expanded programming, created a fundraising action plan, negotiated new location for the school and are actively pursuing key strategic alliances. This is a strategy that is rooted in results!

This process has helped prepare BVMS for a quantum leap in fulfilling its important mission of helping children live successfully!
