Voila Montessori believes that a child's environment is crucial to a healthy emotional, social and cognitive development. Through private coaching, group workshops and webinars, I provide the necessary guidance and knowledge to prepare parents to nurture their child's immense potential towards a healthy, positive long-term growth. My Montessori and Positive Discipline background allows me to pinpoint your child’s stage of development and become a “translator” between you and your child. Having this better understanding of your child will help ease the stress and unknown of parenting. Meet Jeanne-Marie Paynel
