Our mission statement is to provide a Montessori programme which considers the emotional, intellectual, physical and social development of the total child by addressing the uniqueness of each in a nurturing, emotionally secure and academically excellent 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

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 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 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.

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.
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
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.
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.
