I have worked in homes and schools. I am easy-going, amiable, trustworthy and reliable and am very sensitive to the needs of children. I offer a very welcoming and accepting place for them, so they can relax and express themselves.

I have worked in Montessori schools, mainly as an assistant, but some experience as the teacher, and a few homes with children about 1 and up. I am a trained Montessori teacher for the ages of about 2 -6. Children find me to be most amiable, loving and caring, easy-going, interactive, trusting and trustworthy. I am a mature, reliable, responsible individual with a good sense of humour. Have had many enjoyable years working with children from 1 - 6 years of age. I like to engage them in the day to day tasks where appropriate. Children enjoy being included and introduced to new things. This actually builds their confidence and self-esteem when they are shown how to "do it themselves" I always like to include reading and getting outside. It's nice to talk about what we see, hear and smell. Children of all ages like to learn.

The Montessori approach is about being a guide. Can provide learning opportunities for the child. Children like to master their world and that is why we try to include them in the day to day tasks. This also aids them in their quest for independence. Montessori philosophy is about using grace and courtesy to guide a child. Our main goal is to be conscious of developing their self - esteem and self- confidence. We also understand what is necessary to have in their environment to bring about wholesome development. Can certainly start them on the road to reading and IF the child is interested can have them reading very well by 5 or 6. The first few years of a child's life are the most important.

My name is Julia, I currently work in long term care doing programs in Hamilton and have been in that field for a few years now. I went to Mohawk for Recreation Therapy and absolutely loved it. I have 2 sisters and am very family oriented, probably why Christmas is my favourite holiday of the year!
