Why are you involved with Montessori education?

Montessori education guides each child to discover and learn about themselves and their world in a holistic environment that is supportive and encourages individuality. From the moment I sat in a Montessori classroom, my heart knew this was the place I needed to be to make a difference in young lives.

What year did you commence at MIC?


How would you describe what you do?

My role is to nurture and guide young children to feel confident, independent, safe and happy within themselves. I support the guide within our environment to build a space where children want to come and learn and immerse themselves in everything Montessori.

What’s your favourite thing about your role?

Every day I am given the opportunity to really make a difference in children’s lives. There aren’t many careers where you meet smiling faces at the door every morning, you greet each other respectfully and genuinely and where another person is so excited to see you that they give you a hug. There is something so special about a career in Montessori Early Childhood Education.
