Our Mission

AMI Certified Assistant to Infancy Directress

In 2007, I began my Montessori career by working as an assistant in a Primary Classroom at a local Montessori School . In 2009, I became an assistant in a Toddler Community and it was there that I truly began to appreciate the importance of a child's early years to his/her development. It is in the first two years that the child develops his personality, language, intellect, movement, and takes his first steps towards independence.

The more I worked with young children, the more enamored I became with Montessori Education and what it offers the child. I then decided to take the training myself and become a certified Montessori Directress. I completed the AMI Assistants to Infancy (0-3) Training at The Montessori Institute of Denver in Colorado in 2013. 

From 2013-2015, I operated a classroom of 12 children at a Montessori School in St. Charles. Before that, I worked in the Toddler Community at a St. Louis Area Montessori School for 6 years. Now, I am a stay at home mother of 2 girls I have a 16 year old that will be entering 10th grade and a 3 year old. Bodhi Tree Montessori has been operating successfully since January 2016.

"It follows that at the beginning of his life the individual can accomplish wonders – without effort and quite unconsciously."

In today's society, there is so much advice out there about raising children and the best way to do so. Whether the information comes from a parent at the park or an online resource, I have found that no child's path is predetermined. No one can tell you what your child is like or what they should be doing.

Here at Bodhi Tree, we believe that every child is different and so are their parents. We know that every parent does the best they can with what they have. Bodhi Tree Montessori is here to offer mutual support and guidance to families while applying Montessori principles to assist the child with development in an environment specially prepared for him/her.
