About Me:

My name is Ruwani Ranatunga and I take my profession as a child care provider very seriously. Being a certified Montessori and Preschool teacher, I have completed several credit hours of early childhood education, and will continue doing so in order to improve my knowledge and skills. I feel I have the love, knowledge, experience and qualities needed to provide a warm, loving environment in which children can learn and grow.

I believe that children are the most important part of our future and will work with you to provide stability for their future.


As soon as the child is ready, we will introduce the Montessori method combined with preschool teaching. Activities include arts and crafts, story telling, music and games. All opportunity is given to allow children to use and develop language skills, use large and small muscles, learn new ideas skills and explores them to a verity of cultures. The program will also encourage creativity and imagination using various apparatus, materials and medium. Your children will get confidence, feel successful and good about themselves.
