Mumtaz Kanchwala ⋅ Beginning Toddler


My name is Mumtaz Kanchwala, and I was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan. I completed my high school, and college education in Karachi, and my Montessori training in the ages from 0-3 year olds was completed almost five years ago.

I have been teaching in the Beginning Toddler classroom for over 15 years, and loving every moment of it! I always had the passion to work with young children, which is why before joining the Mansio staff, I was working as a volunteer at my children’s elementary school, helping teachers by working in the classroom, and school library.

In my free time I like to read books, current articles, and Montessori philosophy based books that all help me grow. I also love being outdoors.

I have resided in the St Charles community for over 25 years with my husband and our two beautiful children- my son is 25 and graduated from collage in 2012, and my daughter is 23 studying in Iowa.

I feel incredibly fortunate to be the part of Mansio Montessori Family!
