I can´t rate this Montessori highly enough, my son used to cry when the weekends came, he missed Kay and his new pals so much. The variety of activities is second to none and really brought the creative side out in my son, he now can sit for more than two minutes. Well done to Kay and staff and I know there will be tears when we leave.
Very grateful to have such a fantastic Montessori in our area.Kay and her staff are brilliant and you can see how much they enjoy their work and it shines through in the children.Each morning our little girl eagerly awaits to get in without hesitation, this was the same for our little boy when he went there.The outdoor play are is great, an extension to the classroom where the children happily learn and play together.We appreciate all the beautiful arts and crafts that is put in for all the different celebrations throughout the year. They mark each occasion in such a fun way for the children and the atmosphere is fantastic as you just know they ave had the best morning. We would highly recommend Footprints Montessori and wish you continued success. Fiona McMurray
We have found Footprints to be an excellent Montessori. Our son is very happy there and has settled in very well. Management and Staff are lovely and very competent. They have a wide range of educational activities which helped with our sons development and in building his confidence.
“Our daughter is currently in her second year at Footprints Montessori and loves every minute of her time there. This is a testament to the hard work and professionalism of Kay and her staff. We have watched Lilianna develop socially and academically in an environment which is caring, stimulating and educationally rich. Thank you for providing her with a strong foundation as she begins her journey in education.
My son has blossomed since starting at Footprints Montessori under the care and guidance of Kay and her staff. They have become important people in his life and he loves going to `Kay´s House´ to meet all his friends, play, have fun and learn lots of new things! Kay and her team have helped my son enormously with his speech and language skills, social skills and generally learning more about the world around him. I attribute this to the dedication, care and attention given especially by Kay and her team to my son during these important pre-school years.
My daughter Grace attends Footprints Montessori Preschool and I can truly say it has made a very positive difference to her development. She has so much fun with all the different tasks they carry out each day and she has such a sense of pride in everything she does. She talks about all her friends and her teachers;Kay,Donna and Orla at home all the time.Kay and the girls are very professional but also kind,loving and attentive and Grace loves all three of them. When I leave her at school in the morning I feel re-assured that she is in a safe and happy environment.
My three children all really enjoyed their time at Footprints Montessori. Kay and her team create a really nurturing and fun learning environment for all the children with outdoor facilities that are second to none.John and Fiona Britton 2021
Footprints Montessori is a friendly and fun athmosphere.Kay and her staff are helpful,accomaditve and so flexible to suit all parents and children’s needs. My daughter has enjoyed every minute, not wanting to miss a day.She has had great fun on a day trip to Pattons Egg Farm,taking part in the Christmas Nativity play and baking on a weekly basis. I would like to take this opportunity to wish Kay and staff all the best for the future.
Our son Darragh started Footprints Montessori in September 2019. From the first day he loved it.We can’t recommend Kay and her staff highly enough.Their hard work and dedication to making the children feel at home is second to none.It’s comforting to know as we drop off our child that he is met with a big smile and he can’t wait to leave us and get inside. Darragh has come on leaps and bounds since he started. We wish Kay and staff all the very best for the future. Leslie and Martina Keaney
Callie has been attending Footprints Montessori full time since September 2015 and has loved every minute of it. Since starting she has come on leaps and bounds in every aspect of her development and even looks forward to go to school at weekends!! She will miss Kay, Edel and Esther but I am confident she will settle in well into junior infants and this is all down to Kay and her staff. She will bring everything she has learned from the past year with her. Many thanks for making Callie’s first taste of school experience a very enjoyable one.
