Get to Know Us
Meribeth: I have spent my entire adult life in the childcare and early childhood education industry. I started in 1981 with a home day care and preschool and operated that business for six years. I enjoyed my time with these children but wanted to offer them more. I attended a Montessori teacher-training program and added that certification to my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington and went into a head teaching position in a Montessori classroom. I have spent the last twenty-two years teaching young children using the Montessori method, as well as embracing new materials and teaching concepts that enhance our Montessori classroom. Each day brings new learning, discoveries, and joy to both the children and myself.
Leslie: I have spent my childhood and early adulthood watching and benefiting from the Montessori preschool that my mother, Meribeth, has taught and is now operating in our home. It has been my long term goal to join her in the classroom, and beginning in January of 2008, that goal was achieved. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington in June of 2005, and completed my Montessori training in 2008. I am thrilled to be working with these young children on a daily basis.
