In the beginning...
Born in Timmins Ontario, Mélanie was brought up in a francophone family. She then raised both of her children in a bilingual household in the Waterloo Region.
Mélanie worked in the region's French schools as a substitute teacher before teaching French in a Montessori school. Mélanie soon fell in love with the Montessori way of teaching. Having a daughter young enough to attend a Casa program, she became a Montessori parent and in 2007, Mélanie attended the Canadian Montessori Teacher Education Institute and graduated as a Montessori teacher in 2008. That same year, Mélanie started this program with a few children in a small room leased in a community church. She was looking to offer a quality bilingual Montessori program for the children of the region. As a mom, her two children often tagged along for the day, helping in class with the children, often spending evenings and weekends at the school to help as best they could.
One at a time, the Tremblay children decided to also train as Montessori teachers and joined the staff of Trillium Bilingual Montessori school.
