Our Mission

Our mission is to empower children with social and academic skills, responsibility, confidence, respect for others, love for school and learning, and appreciation for our world and its beauty and balance.

Our Teachers

We have the consistency of the same nurturing teachers every day. Diane and Kristin are both experienced teachers, are current in first aid and CPR, are vaccinated, and are also Moms so we understand how rewarding and challenging parenting can be!

Diane Rose

I am Diane Rose and I am the owner and teacher of Montessori Fun. I established this program with a few Montessori activities in my living room, and my own children when they were toddlers! I have a California Teachers Credential (emphasis in early childhood) and a Montessori Teachers Training Certificate, has over 25 years of experience working with preschoolers and toddlers. I am blessed to have Kristin and Ashley here with me, they are wonderful with the children; truly patient and kind and we all work well together. I have three grown children, and now I have two grandbabies! I added Spanish to the daily curriculum and love teaching the language joyously with song, dance, stories, and fingerplays. “Each child is different and it is truly a pleasure to get to know every individual. We do our best to give them the foundation for their education: love for learning, successful social skills, and positive self-esteem. I am so lucky to have a job I love!”

Tambien,  hablo Espanol y puedo ayudar a los ninos quien no hablen engles  para que esten listos para Kinder en una escueala de immersion o cualquier kinder en Engles. Y ademas, creo es muy important ser orgulloso de ser bilingue!

Kristin Ohlson

Kristin co-teaches with Diane.  She lives in Healdsburg with her husband and two young girls. She has over 15 years of preschool experience and over 36 units of ECE. She loves hiking, camping, and cooking. What she loves most about teaching preschool children is being able to nurture each individual child and watch them grow.

We all look forward to working with your child and sharing in the fun of learning new things.

Ashley Amador

Ashley Amador is our assistant teacher and helps with everything! She is a student at SRJC. Ashley joined us in 2022 and has grown so much already as a teacher showing warmth kindness and patience.
