Our 12th Street School opened in 2016 and is nicknamed "Ty's Place" in honor of our founder Kate Healy's son Tyler.

We accept ages 4 weeks - 12 years at this location.

We are open Monday - Friday, 6:30am - 6:00pm (max 10 hours/day).

We provide a mix of Montessori works, outside play and music every day. 

Each age-group has a developmentally appropriate outside space to explore. 

Gardening, Yoga, ASL and Spanish are incorporated into weekly lesson plans.


Gymnastics, Soccer and Kindermusik are all available during school hours with an extra fee.

I  am the Lead Teacher in the downstairs Prek 1 classroom. I have worked at NTMC for 2 wonderful years. I hold a Bachelor of Art in Children Studies from Eastern Washington University, as well as my Montessori Certification from North American Montessori Center. I am also starting my Master of Education this fall online, I have been married to  Patrick for 7 years. We have 2 girls Ruby (4), and Lucy Mae (1), and a new fur family member Dilly Dallas Dog.  I love to knit, craft and buy things off Amazon and coffee makes me magical. I love teaching, it’s my passion. I love learning and am always looking for new things, and skills I can bring into my classroom. I hope that I can help make the world a little better for my children and all those in my classroom family.
