Nursery Assistant, working toward Key Worker – Joined March 2015

“Ms. Allen was my teacher, then later my sister came to the Montessori Nursery, and finally I enrolled my own son. The hands-on care and growth I experienced here has a generational link. With this history and my childhood as the eldest of five sisters, it seemed only natural for me to switch paths from studying Social Care to Child Care, returning to Allen’s Montessori as an Assistant. I believe that the key to working well with children is good communication and that’s what I strive to bring to my role here.  The Yellow Room gives me with the opportunity to spend time with the kids at during earlier stages of their development, when their mind is opening to the sensory environment. My favourite part of the day is story time, when the children get the chance to sing-a-long and open their imagination.”
