feedback

I am afraid we are completely biased as we think we have the best Montessori School in Ireland.

So here are some parents to tell you about their experiences!

We are confident that their health and safety is a priority and most importantly, we always collect two very happy girls

- Yvonne Canning -

Our two girls attend Mullingar Montessori and The Den after school service. Kayleigh is collected each day from school and dropped to The Den where she completes her homework and enjoys a nutritional meal and healthy snack afterwards.

The Den is bustling with activity, fun and laughter. Kayleigh continues to learn and develop in afterschool through the range of fun activities available to her. 

The Den also offers an excellent outdoor play facility ensuring she is benefiting from physical activity in the fresh air.

Maiya attends Montessori. She is cared for in a nurturing and rich learning environment. She talks fondly about her teachers who are kind, friendly and always show their care for her. 

They communicate her development to us and are always available to tell us about her day. It is a high quality service. 

The level of care provided to him is impossible to describe in words

- Sue Ann Phillips -

My two boys have attended  Mullingar Montessori and The Den after school care since March 2017. My little boy is almost 4 and attends full day care at Mullingar Montessori.

My son was extremely quiet and unhappy in the previous childcare facility he attended and to say he is a changed boy is an understatement. He has learned so much over the past 18 months and the teachers have helped him to feel at ease each day.

The level of care and attention that he receives on a daily basis is second to none. He  loves attending every day and regularly asks at the weekend if he is going to Crèche today.

My older boy is 8 and attends the breakfast club and after school service. He is dropped and collected from school each day. As we are both working parents, it helps to put our minds at ease each day to know that he has arrived at school and been collected from school on time each day.

The service provided  includes completion of homework and nutritional dinners (which are always a winner with our boys, their particular favourite is the cheesy pasta bake. One of the most important considerations when choosing The Den was the fact that there are no electronic devices allowed.

Children are encouraged to play outdoors with friends as much as possible. The introduction of Lego Club on Friday afternoon’s is definitely one of my son’s favourite activities.

I would not hesitate in recommending Mullingar Montessori to anyone. I just wanted to thank Ursula and all the teachers for their love and attention over the past 18 months. Here is too many more fond memories for my two boys.
