Troy Chantland, Owner & Head Teacher

I have been working with children since 1986, when I started as a coordinator for an after school program for 1st - 4th graders. Since then, I have worked as a preschool teacher in High Scope, Play- Based, and Montessori schools. 

I earned a B.A. in Child Psychology & Development from St. Mary's College of California in 1991, and went on to earn two teaching credentials: the American Montessori Society's Primary Certificate and a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, both in 1994.

I recently moved to Sacramento to be closer to family and decided that it was an ideal time to create the classroom I have always envisioned: GreeneHouse Montessori Preschool! 


Cera Orantes is the classroom assistant. She earned her B.A. in Child Development from 

Sacramento State in 2017.


She worked in Head Start preschools for two years prior to joining us at The GreeneHouse and is very excited to teach in a Montessori classroom.


She loves working with children and watching them grow and learn is one of her greatest joys in life.
