Montessori Method

The Montessori Method of education is a unique method which places emphasis in educating the whole child, covering all aspects of their development- intellectual, social, physical, emotional and spiritual.



Your child will be assigned a key worker and this key worker will be in charge of your child’s learning story once a term. These will be printed and sent home in your child’s scrapbook


Aistear & Siolta

Following the new curriculum framework in Ireland for all children from the ages of 0-6 we incorporate Aistear into our curriculum planning. Aistear is the Irish word for ‘journey’ and it will help ensure that your child will be given the best opportunity to develop as a confident and competent learner.
