NEW! Northstar Aquatics Private Swim Lessons!

Lower Elementary 3 Teacher


Ms. Shirley SahniMs. Shirley Sahni - Directress

I graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours BSc. in Environmental Sciences. For many years, I worked in the environmental sector before entering the field of Montessori. I am proud to say I have attained a Lower and Upper Elementary teaching diploma from The Toronto Montessori Institute (TMI) and I believe it is a great achievement in my life. Being the proud mother of a Iittle girl, I value the importance of instilling respect and good morals to the children around me, along with building a solid academic foundation for them. I am very passionate about teaching our young children valuable skills that will enable them to prosper and achieve success in life. By following the teaching philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori, I am certain these lifelong goals can be met. I am excited to be a part of the Northstar team, as they have given me the opportunity to work with a committed staff, who equally enjoy working with children as much as I do. Here's to an outstanding year ahead of us!

What Other People Said...

"Northstar Montessori is more than a school, it is a family. Our children have been with Northstar for nine years and not only are they being taught a higher level of education, but they are learning in a nourishing environment filled with love and care. The staff is very friendly, approachable, and co-operative with parents to better fulfill the needs of each child. We are truly pleased with the quality of our children's education, but even more so with how happy they are at school and with the wonderful individuals they are becoming because of it." - N. De Jesus
