Yvette Perreira Lewis –Infant/Toddler House (3 months to 3 years)
Yvette received her Montessori training at both the Pre-Primary and Infant/Toddler levels with a degree in psychology and early childhood education. A native of Hawaii, Yvette has taught in Montessori schools since 1979, both in Hawaii where she opened the first Toddler/Two’s Program at the Montessori Community School on Oahu and in the Bay Area, where she, her husband Patrick and their infant son relocated in 1988. Yvette joined our staff in 1994. She has since served as our Infant/Toddler Program Coordinator for the last 14 years seeing to the day-to-day functions of the I/T House and meeting with staff and parents as necessary.
Yvette has spent much of her time over the years becoming very involved in her three son’s soccer, swim team, and water polo activities. She enjoys scorekeeping at games and rarely misses a match or meet. She also loves walking, bike riding, and reading…and caring for her two little dogs!
