the joy
of play

Our Preschool Toddler Montessori Class encourages the child to move around freely, a large portion of their morning is spent playing outdoors weather permitting.

We have a garden area including a chicken coup and rabbit pen, a shop and post office plus astro play area.

Here we have safe slides, climbing frames, tractors and tricycles.

We endeavour to make the activities all play based to develop and refine social and motor skills, singing, rhymes, alphabet and story telling.

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!

Ursula and the staff truly love and care for the children, you can feel it in the atmosphere and hear the joy and laughter.

- Olivia & Rory Callaghan -

Rory has spent two wonderful years at Mullingar Montessori. He started in  the baby room at two years old and was immediately made to feel comfortable and welcome.

We had been worried about leaving him but we were put at ease, he even had his own little bed for nap time .We loved reading his daily journal in the baby room making us feel like we were part of his day also.

Ursula and the staff truly love and care for the children, you can feel it in the atmosphere and hear the joy and laughter. Rory skipped in every day and loved his dinner and snacks, I think a take away service for parents dinners would work well!

He has learned so much and had great fun learning- from French Friday to the Life Cycles of Butterflies and Frogs. It’s amazing to hear a 3 year old talking about a chrysalis with such confidence, we even had a little song about it.

The outside play area is fabulous with activities that will keep all happy, the taxi tricycle a firm favourite in our house. Toys and facilities are constantly being updated and improved, there is great scope for imaginative play and fun.

Thank you so much for a memorable graduation and the amazing photo album and scrapbook. We will miss you all. 

every morning she skips through the gate with excitement to get to the classroom.

- Isabel Keegan -

I feel truly confident leaving Romy to Mullingar Montessori knowing every morning she skips through the gate with excitement to get to the classroom. 

Being a past student myself I know it has always been a fun filled, kind and caring environment that any child would love. 

The service that is provide his outstanding from school drop offs to hot nutritional meals there is nothing this montessori won’t do for anyone that goes there!

I can’t recommend this place enough and can’t wait to send my little boy there too know that everyone gets the same love and attention.
