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
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.
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 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
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
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.
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 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.
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.
Our daughter Blayre started Footprints Montessori in September 2019 with Kay and her wonderful team. She had to be encouraged to come home for the first few months as she just adored it so much at Footprints. The staff in here go above and beyond to make the children feel comfortable, safe and most importantly have fun developing while they are in their care.From the mindfulness classes to the bunnies outside and the outstanding playground, the entire facility has such a warm,uplifting atmosphere for the children attending.I couldn’t speak highly enough about Footprints Montessori and her excellent team.
