Beginning Summer 2024
Posted 5/29/2024

Inspire Kids Montessori – Phoenix, AZ, is searching for a New Montessori Preschool Director. 

Diana Darmawaskita

Diana Darmawaskita

My name is Diana Darmawaskita, and I immigrated to this country 34 years ago with my husband.  By profession, I was an engineer. Above all, I am a mom.  My love for children led me to leave my corporate career to pursue my true passion, opening Inspire Kids Montessori 14 years ago in Ahwatukee, Arizona.  I have been dedicated to early childhood education ever since.

I recognize the importance of providing families with nurturing environments that feel like an extension of their own home; one that shares similar values and offers a safe, loving, and intellectually stimulating environment to young children. This has always been my life’s ambition.

We have been very successful as a school with two campuses. We have a dynamic team of teachers and school leaders who collaborate and support one another, working toward a common goal for the betterment of the school community.
