Geneviève Canterbury
(Assistant Director, Curriculum Coordinator)

I enjoy working with young children using playful learning methods to stimulate their attention through the discovery of art, music, and games.

It is a privilege to watch them marvel, grow at their own pace, and discover their promising hidden talents!




"Teaching Preschool means supporting children in their discovery of life, finding something wonderful in the daily life, guiding them towards autonomy. It is a privilege."



"What I like about teaching is  to be able to see the children evolving. I am proud to be a part of this growth in their life."


Assistant's Teacher

"Each child is different, unique and with each of them everything is possible: a drawing, a painting, a song, a story. Their creativity is essential to develop and it is a daily joy to help them."




Olivia Dupré

(Head of Alouette Preschool)

Olivia, of French mother tongue, is originally from France. (Paris Ile-de-France region).

After stints serving as an au pair in Hawaii, and a nanny in the Pacific Palisades, Olivia realized her passion for working with young children.

And so, in 2014, she enrolled at SMC to study Early Childhood Education. She ultimately obtained her Early Childhood Bachelor’s Degree in July 2018, from National University.

For Olivia, it is a particular joy to care for the young children who are entrusted to her. In her eyes, they shine like diamonds.

As a fan of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince,” Olivia likens her experience to the one in the book, of having discovered a more generous and humane vision of the world that she wants to share with all.
