At Little Cube Montessori we believe that positive early experiences in education will inspire a life-long love of learning in children.

                              has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Manitoba, a Commercial Art Certificate and a three-year certificate in Business Management. She has received her ECE license through Selkirk College with honours.

She was a stay-at-home mom for many years prior to starting this preschool 8 years ago. It was being at home with her two daughters, seeing the advantages and value in a Montessori preschool for her children’s self confidence and independence and in her extensive volunteering in their primary school years that made her realize the importance of quality Early Childhood Education and the impact that a teacher has on a child’s love of learning from their very first steps into a school type program.

Ms. Kim’s extensive volunteer work within her community not only awarded her with the Port Coquitlam Volunteer of the Year in 2014 but it also has inspired her to incorporate into her teachings the importance of philanthropy through volunteer work, giving back and supporting one’s community and those within it. This has led to Little Cube’s support of businesses in the community, SHARE and a Children’s Dental Program that offers free dental to low-income school aged children.

Ms. Kim adores animals-spoiling her dog and the preschool’s guinea pig Chester, loves to garden at home and in the preschool garden, and loves to be artistically creative. She shares and incorporates all of these passions of hers with the children in her center on a daily basis.

Ms. Jasmine  received her Early Childhood Educator diploma from Ontario in 2019 and worked there as a Registered Early Childhood Educator before moving to British Columbia. She has worked in a variety of early learning programs over the past 6 years, all with different curriculums and learning philosophies. Her own personal philosophy of early learning is aligned with aspects of the Montessori approach, as it prepares the children not only for kindergarten or school but for life.
She feels her job is very important and fun and loves being around children, learning with them and from them; "it gives me the ability and opportunity to make a positive impact in their lives". Jasmine's favorite part of working with children is bonding with them and getting to know all their different personalities; "I enjoy exploring the environment with the children, seeing things through their eyes, and reading stories while engaging with them".

Outside of work, she is a nature enthusiast, exploring the beautiful nature around us every chance she can get. She also likes to read fiction in her free time.


Ms. Mariam

                                           has had a passion for working with children since 2007. She obtained her Early Childhood Educator certification in 2009 from Ridge Meadows College and has gained many years of experience teaching young children. She firmly believes that children are capable and competent learners who thrive in a relaxed environment with developmentally appropriate activities. When children are given meaningful opportunities to master new challenges, they build self-esteem and become more confident. "Working with children is an incredibly rewarding experience" and she enjoys watching them grow, develop their personalities, and achieve new skills.

Mariam has been living in Port Coquitlam for the past 12 years with her husband and three kids. In her free time her family love to hike and spend time at the beach during the summer and snowboard and ski in the winter. She is a down-to-earth, fun, and energetic person who is excited to be creative with preschoolers and make education fun for them.


She has taken lessons in piano and trumpet and professional training in voice, as well as took up the ukulele as a hobby in her teenage years. Additionally, Megan has musical theatre experience, having been in 3 musicals and 5 plays; including well known shows such as Disney’s Newsies and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 

She has a background working with young children and in particular, those with developmental disabilities; having worked at a paediatric physiotherapy clinic for 4 years. There, she provided support to the children while they underwent treatment.

Her love of children and enthusiasm and passion for music is a good fit for our music program.

Megan is currently in her last year at SFU finishing a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a double minor in Educational Psychology as well as Counselling & Human Development. She hopes to continue her studies in a Masters program to become a registered child and family counsellor, focusing on learning and developmental disabilities. 

Ms. Megan is our music instructor.

                                   is currently a fourth-year Education student at Simon Fraser University, with a double minor in Early Childhood Education and Curriculum and Instruction. She is very passionate about helping students grow and is working towards attending the Professional Development Program to become a teacher one day. She has lots of experience working with children, from being an assistant dance instructor, working at the cities of Port Moody and Coquitlam, and volunteering at Little Cube Montessori in high school. Alicia strongly believes in creating a safe and welcoming environment for students to foster a love for learning. 

Outside of her education and work, Alicia was a competitive dancer for eight years, and even though her competitive training has finished, she continues to take ballet classes at SFU. Alicia also enjoys watching soccer and is an avid Portugal fan, along with the rest of her family. Because of her dance background, Alicia is an advocate for movement and creativity in education and hopes to bring that into her teaching.
