“Sixteen years ago when I discovered Montessori, I felt as if I had found a gold mine. It's the best-kept secret about education. It's revolutionary!” - Aurora Costache

Aurora moved to Iowa from Canada in 2013. She has been married to her husband, Christian, for over 20 years and together they have four children and a small toy poodle. 

She received her AMS 3-6 years diploma through the training center in Windsor, Canada where she also worked.

Later, she moved to Japan for her husband's job where she was able to use her Montessori education in different capacities. She organized a mom and baby Montessori group, taught private English lessons using Montessori methods, and worked in a Japanese preschool teaching English with a Montessori philosophy. When her family moved to Italy, she was able to again make use of her Montessori skills by leading a mom and toddler group. 

She is excited about this new adventure and pleased to offer each student and family a pure Montessori environment with a wealth of international flare and years of experience.
