Miss Ashley and Miss Janine

Janine Church Co-Owner, Co-Director, and Teacher
 I am accredited with the National Center for Montessori Education. I was trained under the direction of Margo Rossano through Montessori Teacher College Northwest.  I started teaching in 1990 at Bellevue Montessori School, and after getting married I moved to the Spokane area where I continued teaching in the Spokane Valley.  Ashley and I have in common the love for the Montessori Method and we can't wait to share it with your children. 

Ashley Tichy Co-Owner, Co-Director, and Teacher 
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Eastern Washington University, with classes including the study of infant and adolescent behavior, as well as development. I lived in Seattle for 7 years where I attended the Art Institute of Seattle. It was at this time that I was first introduced to the "Montessori Method" while working at a Montessori school house, and I have continued in this field for the last 10 years. Janine and I started this dream together in 2011. We share a belief in Dr. Maria Montessori's vision to provide independence and respect for the child.
