I can’t recommend Kay and her staff in Footprints Montessori enough. I have had three kids attend there and every year when you think they can’t get any better ,they excel themselves adding more and more activities.The staff are outstanding, the care and attention they put into each individual child is second to none.Not only do they learn the skills needed in the classroom but the activities outside from learning to ride a bike to caring for animals. My kids had the best experience in Montessori and for that I can’t thank you Kay and staff enough. Sandra Hughes 2021
Our son Seán enjoyed every day at Footprints Montessori, Cashelard. Kay, Edel and all the staff were always very caring and attentive to Seán’s needs. The facilities available are outstanding including excellent outdoor space with tree houses ; sensory garden that Seán loved very much. Seán attended in a part-time capacity to begin and followed on to his full time pre-school year. Seán learned so much during his time at footprints – I could see this every day when he came home with drawings, crafts or stories from ‘circle time’. I was amazed at the work completed in his ‘workbook’ which we received at the end of the year. Also the personal development plans/exercises completed for Seán by Kay and her staff throughout the year. It is obvious that time effort was put into each individual child’s development. Seán made so many friends at Footprints. We were happy he was in a safe friendly environment. I would highly recommend Footprints Montessori. … Read more
“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.
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 Niamh is currently attending Footprints Montessori. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Kay and her staff are absolutely amazing. They teach, encourage, comfort and make sure the children in their care are happy, confident and very well prepared for big school.Our daughter loves going to Kay’s and is so happy. The children are spoiled and are so lucky to have Kay and her excellent staff. This Montessori is so well equipped and the outdoor space is fabulous.So glad we sent Niamh to Kay.

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
Our daughter Lucia joined Footprints Montessori in September 2014 on a part time basis. From the moment we entered the school we knew that Lucia would be cared for in as warm a manner as any parent could wish for. Kay, who owns the school displayed nothing but kindness and support to our daughter each day.We are so impressed at the ability of Kay and her staff to nurture a love of learning in a happy,child centred environment. We are amazed at how much Lucia has progressed both academically and socially,and how independent she has become during her time in Footprints. The classroom environment is tailor made in every way for “little learners” to plot their own course towards achieving milestones that Kay plans out for them. The garden playground is a fantastic facility and the Christmas concert,,Pyjama days and beach trips and seasonally themed parties all contribute towards creating a rich and varied school experience for children and parents alike. It would not be possible for us to … Read more
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.
It could not be possible for me to overstate my appreciation for this great Montessori school. Holly loved her time spent here so much. Kay and her wonderful staff are remarkable, they apply a fantastic fun filled yet structured atmosphere on a daily basis. I feel Holly has excelled while at footprints and she will go ahead into big school emotionally and academically ready because of her time here. We leave with wonderful memories. As someone once said to me ” You cannot put a price on your child being happy and safe.
