Patty Buckberry

Montessori Specialist

I began my Montessori journey 29 years ago… I will never forget the feeling of amazement and wonder as I observed the children working in the class so independent and with purpose. Each day I still have that feeling of amazement and admiration for the children I teach.

I  have experienced teaching preschool in a variety of Montessori settings and continue to follow my passion for teaching young children. I have taught in the West Kelowna and Kelowna area for the last 15 years. I look forward to offering my own Montessori once again.

My introduction to the Montessori Method began much earlier when I was in Grade one, looking out the window watching children in the garden area of our school. I was enrolled in a DND school in Sardinia and the Montessori School was located in the lower level of our building. I was often envious of the children tending to plants while I was sitting at my desk… Interesting how life becomes full circle…I have been working with children since 1975. During Grade 12 I took the Childcare Course and realized that I would like to follow in my Mother’s footsteps as an Early Childhood Educator. I went to college and graduated with a 2 year Diploma in Early childhood education in 1982. I am looking forward to this new venture with Ms. Patty and all the discoveries to come in.
