Early Childhood Educators

Child-Focused & Highly-Trained Staff

At Queens Montessori Academy, we hold our staff to a superior standard of excellence. Everyone on the Queens Montessori team is highly trained and well educated. Our early childhood educators hold a variety of degrees and diplomas, including Registered Early Childhood Educator certification and MACTE Montessori accreditation, the highest level of Montessori certification available.

Our directresses share our dedication and passion for the Montessori method. In an effort to ensure a consistent Montessori experience, we ensure each classroom has at least one Montessori-accredited directress, as well as at least one registered early childhood educator. This staff-to-child ratio grows with the class size to ensure every child has the support and attention they need.

In addition, each staff member is certified in Standard First Aid and Level C CPR with a clear criminal reference check including vulnerable sector screening. With continued professional development courses and workshops, our educators regularly expand their knowledge and remain on top of the latest research in the field of early development.

What Sets Us Apart

Our centre’s curriculum is built on the Montessori method. Based on the work of Dr. Maria Montessori, this method uses self-directed activity, collaborative play and hands-on learning to develop independent thinking, self-awareness, motivation and discipline. Children have a natural drive to learn through play. Our Montessori curriculum simply harnesses that drive to facilitate growth and development.

With a variety of certifications and a solid foundation of experience, our early childhood educators are well-equipped to facilitate your child’s learning in a safe and engaging environment. Our directresses are passionate about child care and the Montessori method. They apply our curriculum with a warm and supportive approach that allows each child to feel like Queens Montessori is their home-away-from-home.

Open communication between our staff and your family is crucial. We maintain an open-door policy, allowing you to meet with our directresses and discuss your child’s progress. In addition to open houses, report cards, parent interviews and other opportunities, our BrightPath Connect™ app ensures you’re always tuned-in to your child’s progress and development.

Food is vital to your child’s mental and physical development. We’ve collaborated with a registered nutritionist on our menu to ensure your child has all the fuel they need to learn and grow. We use fresh and local ingredients as much as possible when preparing your child’s lunch and snacks. All the food we offer is prepared in-house daily.
