"The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”
- Dr.Maria Montessori
Ms. Kimia received her early childhood education from Irvine Valley and Saddleback College and she first learned about Montessori when she was required to write a paper about Maria Montessori in one of her classes. Kimia was drawn to the philosophy because of the respectful way it responds to each child individually. She says she loves the innocence and curiosity of young children and is amazed by how they see the world. When not at school she loves singing, dancing, spending time with friends, family and her chihuahua Ricky.
