Hello, my name is Miss Amanda Raymond, and I am the owner and operator at Discover Montessori preschool. I have been working with preschool-age children for the past 15 years. I hold a Montessori teacher’s diploma, and Early Childhood Education certificate, 1st Aid certificate and have many hours of professional development workshops. Dr. Maria Montessori said, “You must find the work that satisfies your spirit.” This work satisfies my spirit daily. I am blessed to be able to guide the children as they grow. It’s incredible to see the world through a young child’s eyes as they excitedly discover the joy of learning. My interests outside of the preschool are spending time with my family, which includes my two children. I also enjoy nature and moments of silence with a fresh cup of coffee.
I graduated and obtained my government license to practice within our province in early 2000. I am a member of our local Community Services Childcare and Referral program which allows me to keep current with professional development. I am an advocate of the protection of our planet and love teaching children the importance of being mindful of the environment. Simple everyday practices at an early age promotes a healthy respect for our earth. While living on the West Coast, I met and married my husband, we share two daughters and a dog named Sam. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, spending time with my family, traveling around our beautiful province, and capturing pictures along the way.
