Ms. Melissa Robertson

“Each child is so unique. I enjoy every moment of getting to know the children in my care and what their strengths are in the classroom. I follow the child’s interests, current abilities and personality as a Montessori Guide. I nurture the children in my care and at the same time work on improving their skills. My approach is one that instills confidence in what the child is good at.  With gentle encouragement and positive reinforcement I help the child develop additional strengths, independence and curiosity in new subjects. It is so rewarding to see a child gain strength in an area that I helped them with and I get to do this every day.”
