Teachers' Quotes


Tess, teacher for the Dolphin Class

It is a privilege to work at La Petite École. I'm honored to provide these children with positive early childhood experiences that build strong foundations for the rest of their schooling careers.


Katia, teacher for the Dolphin Class

It makes me happy to be able to share each moment with the children here at La Petite École.  During the day so many things can and do happen. With each of these moments there is an opportunity to teach about emotions, the world, relationships, practical life, school life, etc. I'm so proud to be part of a such strong team where the learning is constant.


Florence, teacher for the Polar Bears Class

The first time a child independently chooses an activity and then, with deep concentration, sits, and starts to explore the Montessori material is truly amazing. I am stunned by his expression of inner calm and wonder in the perfection of his gesture placing the last piece of the pink tower. It's a magical moment.


Emma, teacher for the Polar Bears Class

I am so proud to be a part of the Unicorn class team.  My favorite time of the day is when the children arrive in the classroom, ready to go, tackle their day.  They start straight away with practical life skills and from there they explore their place in the world.  A Montessori classroom is full of wonder and to see children learn through play is unbelievable.


Manon, assistant for the Polar Bears Class

Whenever we go outside to play I love watching the children get absorbed in their games, making different discoveries, creating worlds of make believe.  Every once in a while there is the special moment when a child needs me.  After I give him the attention he requires for reassurance that he is safe, he immediately returns to his adventure.  Knowing I helped warms my heart.

Sally, teacher for the Dolphins Class

Even after 16 years of experience as a class teacher and head teacher for early years and primary school children, my passion is the personal interaction with the wonderful little individuals in our class. Guiding them during their learning and exploration every day is the most satisfying experience I can imagine.

Carine, teacher for the Panda Class

With the older kids as well as with the younger ones I love to watch how the children communicate and exchange with each other, whether it's a word, facial expression, or gesture.  They are each different in their own way.  Being a part of their individual development and helping them grow and blossom is my biggest satisfaction.

Martha, teacher for the Polar Bear Class
