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

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!

Our kids have happy memories for life from Mullingar Montessori

- Debbie & Paddy Halligan -

Our five children all attended the Toddler room and then went on to Montessori Class for two years.

All of our children really enjoyed their time at Mullingar Montessori School and were always so well taught and cared for by Ursula and her team.

We have been over ten years attending this wonderful service and I would highly recommend this school to any other family.  

Attending Mullingar Montessori has proven to be great start for our children

- Claire Smyth -

Our eldest son started primary school in September and it was a seamless transition for him because of his experience in Mullingar Montessori.

We have another son in his 2nd ECCE year and I can see his confidence building which will help him starting primary school next year. 

Our daughter who attends the toddler room really enjoys the interaction with other children her own age and enjoys the variety of things they do every day.  

They all learn so much without it being a chore.  It’s a fun place for them to be.  The staff are excellent and it is great to know they understand the children and their needs so well.  Its always lovely to drop the children off to a friendly happy environment. 

The garden is a great asset to the school as the children love getting out to play with their friends.
