love of
learning

Our Montessori Class offers a range of Montessori materials and activities.

There are two directresses in each room, fully trained and qualified in Montessori who teach the children indivdually how to work at their own pace.

We do a lot of work with Síolta and Aistear, the national quality framework of how the following themes translate into practice; 

  • Wellbeing
  • Identity & Belonging
  • Communicating
  • Exploring & Thinking

“The child’s mind is not the type of mind we adults possess.
If we call our type of mind the conscious type,
that of the child is an unconscious mind.”
