The Children’s House (TCH) Montessori Lakeshore is located in the heart of Tecumseh, on Advance Boulevard with access off Essex County Road 22 or Patillo Road. The centre is situated within a growing community catering to families with young children and close to shopping and local parks. Making its home in a beautiful free-standing building, the centre features a large, private parking lot making drop off and pick up convenient for parents.
TCH Lakeshore offers 115 licensed spaces in child care for 6-week to 6-year-olds as well as before and after school care for 6 to 10-year-olds. The centre is secured with proxy key access, keeping children and staff safe and secure inside.

Rosa started educating children in the Montessori Method in 1994. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and has AMI Training for the Montessori Method. Rosa joined the TCH team in 2012.
Rosa’s favourite part about being a TCH Principal is building relationships with parents, teachers and children. She truly appreciates the unique qualities of each child and the different stages of development – physically, emotionally and socially.

Upon graduation she took the Montessori training in Toronto and taught there for six years before moving to St. Maarten. While in St. Maarten she met her husband, who is from Denmark.

In her spare time, Rosa enjoys travelling and walking the family dog with her family.
What our families think about TCH Lakeshore
"It's a blessing to be able to walk out of those doors.. Although sad to leave my little guy who is 3 everyday , I know he is in good hands. I absolutely loved when on our way home i asked him how was his day and he said "Great! Momma do you know the planets?... " super exciting. Thank you to everyone there for making our transition better."
"Highly recommend it to anyone seeking care for their child. The programs are developmentally appropriate, staff are warm and welcoming, communication between the centre and home is outstanding and the menu for lunches and snacks is the best we’ve seen. Our oldest child had multiple food allergies while attending the centre and the policies in place made us comfortable and confident that he would be safe in their care each day.
We appreciate all the years of care this centre has offered our children. They go above and beyond for their families and children attending their programs!"
