Welcome! My name is Junnifa Nduoma Uzodike. I am a wife, and a mother to four children. I am also an AMI trained Montessori educator for the 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 age groups, and have also completed the RIE Foundations course. I am passionate about Montessori education and positive, peaceful parenting as tools in Laying the Foundation for a Good Life.

I chose the name Nduoma for my website because it is my middle name and a combination of two Igbo words; “Ndu” which means “Life”, and “Oma” which means “Good”. Together, they mean Good Life which is the goal of the work that I do. I support families in laying the foundation of a good life for their children.

What exactly is a Good Life?

The Good Life we refer to on this site is one where the individual is adapted to his/her world, confident, fulfilled in life, happy, independent, peaceful, smart, pursuing a passion and living life to its fullest.

The individual who is living a good life is able to adapt to new conditions and situations, not afraid to deal with life’s situations, knows how to behave with grace and courtesy in the society; S/he is able to share and give to the less privileged. S/he knows his/her purpose and is working towards it. S/he is able to set goals and achieve them. S/he knows his actions impact others and the world and so s/he makes good decisions for the good of her/himself and the society at large.
