Our school is located in the heart of Sandymount Village where there is ample parking. Our Montessori School caters for children aged three to five years and because our pre-school is just across the road we find that children make the transition with little or no discomfort. Our opening hours are 9:00 am – 12:30 pm, Monday – Friday. Our main goals for children aged three to five are:
- to help them work independently,
- to take care of their needs and
- to develop a good self image.
Children are free to roam the room and are not confined to desks and there are no time constraints on how a long a child works on a chosen activity. A wide selection of materials and activities nourish self-confidence etc The classroom includes areas of Practical Life, Sensorial Exercises, Mathematics, and Language Development. We offer Stretch n’ Grow , art and crafts classes, music, and drama are integrated into the classroom activities. We also have a very safe and secure back garden for children to get out and get some fresh air everyday.
