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 the University of British Columbia – Okanagan.
Harmony was first introduced to the Montessori approach to 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. Inspired for a deeper understanding of the philosophy and methodology, she went on to complete a Montessori Teaching Diploma accredited by MACTE, an international standard-setting and accrediting body for Montessori Education, which is recognized by the Department of Education.
As required by the B.C. Licensing Authorities to work with children ages two through six, Harmony also holds a Provincial Early Childhood Educator License to Practice.
Harmony’s diverse background in child psychology, Health Sciences, and the Montessori approach to education merge to create the unique and well-rounded Preschool & Kindergarten Program at Maple Tree Montessori.
