We feel incredibly blessed that our son has had the opportunity to attend Shawnigan Lake Montessori Preschool. His positive transformation as a young learner has been amazing under the care of head teacher Nicky Constantine-Macdonald and early childhood educator Leanne Pachet. After having a difficult year at a previous Montessori preschool, he was guarded and apprehensive; rarely participating in group activities, and uncertain of whether he could open up and be himself in a school environment. After a year in Nikki’s classroom our son has emerged confident, articulate, enthusiastic, and purposeful. As parents it is a tremendous relief to know that your child is not only enjoying school but thriving in a learning environment that is that is nurturing, kind, stable, respectful, and inclusive. Nikki has the rare gift of tuning in to each child’s individual nature, witnessing their unique gifts, and supporting the highest development and expression of these gifts. Leanne has a wonderful ability to uphold a calm and peaceful learning environment while encouraging accountability and self-reliance in children. We are eternally grateful that our child had the opportunity to spend a formative year under the care and mentorship of Nikki and Leanne. We unreservedly provided our highest recommendation to any parent seeking an authentic Montessori school environment, staffed by these dedicated and talented educators.
