Head of School
Harmony has long been interested in child psychology and development and holds an Associate of Arts Degree in Psychology with Okanagan College. Her keen interest in health and wellness lead her to complete a two-year Health Science Program through UBC – Okanagan.
Harmony was first introduced to Montessori education when her daughter attended kindergarten at a private Montessori school. Seeing her daughter’s success and accelerated advancement, Harmony became fascinated by the alternative model of education. She completed an Early Childhood Montessori Diploma Program through the North American Montessori Centre.
Furthering her understanding of the Montessori philosophy and methodology, Harmony went on to earn an advanced Montessori Teaching Diploma accredited by MACTE, an international standard setting and accrediting body for Montessori Education, and recognised by the U.S. Department of Education.
Harmony’s diverse background in child psychology, Health Sciences and Montessori education merge to create the unique and well-rounded Preschool & Kindergarten Program at Maple Tree Montessori.
