Jessica Scrimes trained with AMI for the age groups 0-3 and 3-6. She was a Montessori child herself and all of her three children attended Montessori school in Australia and Switzerland. Jessica Scrimes holds a BA in Social Welfare from the University of Western Sydney, with a special study in Empowerment and Advocacy skills. For the past 10 years, Mrs Scrimes’ work has been to set up and run a bilingual (English/German) Montessori long-day-care centre for children from 0-6 years. She also worked as the registration team leader for the International Montessori Congress that was held in Sydney in 2005 and was the international secretary to the 2021 International Montessori Congress in Thailand. In Zürich, Switzerland, she works as the secretary to the AMI training for all three age levels 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12, working closely with the Swiss Montessori community.
Liliana Silvestre holds a bachelor’s degree in Primary Education (2009). After 5 years working as a Primary School Teacher in Portugal, she decided to get to know other teaching methods abroad. Her first contact with the Montessori Method was in Germany in 2012, where she worked at the International Montessori school (3-6), in Cologne. Impressed by the excellent impact of Montessori Education on children, she took a Montessori Assistant Course 0-3 in Switzerland. The course made her feel passionate about this age group and motivated her to complete her Montessori Diploma 0-3 in Zurich 2020, and a postgraduate degree in Neurodevelopment in Pediatrics at the Institute of Health Sciences of the Portuguese Catholic University. Liliana has been working with children for 15 years, and as a 0-3 Montessori Guide in the last 3 years.
