PRE-PRIMARY: Assistant - Blue Iris

Monica was a hairdresser for 3 years but her heart was not really in it, she wanted to work with children.

She  studied Educare and worked a Kahanyisa school for 7 years and then moved across to a Pre-school in Khayelitsha called Luthando Educare and worked there for 4 years and this is where she heard about Montessori.

She studied the 3-6year course with Joani at St Joseph’s College and started in her first Montessori class as an assistant at Pinelands Montessori Pre-school  and worked there for 5 years. She then decided to expand her horizons and experience in Montessori and now works at the  Children’s Workshop.  She especially loves teaching all the classes Xhosa.

“I like that the children are independent and I also like the method of teaching.  I want to explore and learn more about Montessori”.
