Nichole really provided us with a concrete idea of how to implement the Montessori philosophy. We look forward to having her support as we find our way through this crazy journey!

I have been blown away by Nichole’s passion for and expertise in helping to create environments for children to thrive and helping parents navigate the toddler years. Whether it was developing a plan for a beautiful play space for our children or advising us on how to talk with our 3 year old about moving to a new home, Nichole took the time to understand our unique needs and developed a plan that will make all of our upcoming transitions so much easier. She is an incredible resource for any family with young children and a wonderful person. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

When I was hired to become a Toddler Directress of a classroom, I was not quite finished with my training. Nichole stepped in and became a mentor for me. We would meet weekly and she would help me set up my classroom. It was so great knowing that I had someone to help guide me.

I remember I could not wait to meet with her once a week. I would have my list all ready with all of my questions listed. She was always so patient and gave me the best advice, advice that I still use today. She helped me become a better human being, a better communicator, and an understanding teacher. I truly believe that If I would not have crossed paths with Nichole in my Montessori career I would not know everything I do today. She still inspires me till this day!

I would often say to friends with babies around the same age as mine - “I wish there was a book specific to my child. I’m tired of digging through tons of information only to find a few snippets that actually apply to my child’s personality” And then we met Nichole! She observed and interacted with Elsie, learned what interested her and what made her frustrated and then used those findings to work with her (and us!). One place where we really benefitted from Nichole’s expertise and experience was toileting. She confidently and consistently guided us and Elsie through the process. It was not a quick process for us, but Nichole continuously came up with countless ways to achieve results that were specific to Elsie’s personality. She encouraged us through every step and cheered with us when Elsie succeeded! In short, Elsie’s transformation was amazing - her vocabulary and communication skills exploded and her ability to focus grew, all while maintaining her passionate, strong-willed self.
