Red Deer Montessori School
The purpose of the Red Deer Montessori school is to provide an enriched child-focused elite program based on Maria Montessori’s philosophy of education. We are a privately run preschool/daycare that provides the materials and activities that stimulate the child’s natural curiosities and a love of knowledge.

Our elite program is for children ages 3 to 5 and who are potty trained (except for the Bambino /Toddler Program). Red Deer Montessori Preschool is a prepared class environment.

My name is Mrs. Donalyn, and I am happily married to Mr. Fred. I am a mom of 4 and an Oma of 6 grandchildren. My family is so important to me and I thank God for them.
I love working with children, as they bring such joy! Throughout my life I have volunteered at the Children’s Hospital, taught Sunday School, along with helping in our children’s schools. I operated my own dayhome for over 20 years while our children were growing up and during this time I completed the Child Care Assistant course from Red Deer College.
September of 2009 I started working at Red Deer Montessori Preschool as a Directress (teacher). In the year of 2010 I completed both Montessori courses Level 1 and 2 for 3 – 6 year olds. I have also attended Montessori conferences which have encouraged and empowered me to be the best I can be in the classroom.
I have a passion for Montessori as I see how it enables children to grow and learn with self motivation. I am thankful to be able to teach with a wonderful team at Red Deer Montessori and to direct children within our classes.
My name is Fred. I’m a husband, father of four and Opa of six grandchildren. I’ve been a part of Red Deer Montessori as a Director (teacher) since 2010 and have the privilege of working with my wife Donalyn. The Montessori methodology inspired me so much that
in 2017 I enrolled in the North American Montessori Center and obtained my International Montessori Teacher Diploma for 3-5 year olds. The children’s desire to learn motivates me to keep on learning by attending conferences and researching new lessons and works.
One of the joys I experience at Red Deer Montessori, is teaching music to the children. Watching and listening to them sing, dance and play musical instruments warms my heart. I would like to thank all the families, past, present and future, for allowing me to be a part of your lives.
Red Deer Montessori is happy to introduce our new Executive Director, Tannis Jeffers. Tannis joined our team at the end of January 2019. Tannis has enjoyed a lengthy career in childcare but found her life-long passion in Montessori education in 2010 when she received her Teaching Diploma through NAMC.
Tannis is responsible for the overall business operations of RDM and leads our team of teachers, and the school to provide a high-quality program. Tannis looks forward to this new journey of serving families and continuing to support children within the community in achieving their highest potential. If you haven’t already met her be sure to stop in and say hello!
My name is Grace, I am married with 2 boys. I was born in Red Deer and raised in Delburne on a farm. I moved from Delburne to Red Deer in 2004.
I joined the child care industry in March of 2005. I started off by doing a licensed daytime. While doing daytime I completed my Child Development Assistant certificate, Step ahead provider training, child psychology diploma and administrative legal computer. Once my 2 children were in school full time, I decided to seek work outside of the home where I started working in a daycare centre here in Red Deer.
I have gained so much knowledge since being in a daycare setting. I am always finding ways to expand my knowledge and learn different ways to positively impact our next generation.
I joined the Red Deer Montessori team at the beginning of April 2019 and attended the Montessori conference. I was very inspired by the information at the conference and am eager to continue learning and educating myself with the Montessori Method. I am looking forward to this journey and what it will bring to my life.
