The Children's House Montessori

A small private school established since 1988 allowing the natural learning ability of each child to develop to its fullest extent, enabling him/her to approach the rest of their educational life with immense advantage and confidence.

‘In order to educate, it is essential to know those who are to be educated’ Maria Montessori. I qualified as a St Nicholas Montessori Directress in 1987 and have been teaching ever since. The Children’s House, Montessori School was established in Waterford in 1988. One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the joy of learning. I find teaching young children an enriching and rewarding profession, it has impacted on all areas of my life. In The Children’s House Montessori we offer the children an opportunity to progress at their own pace, using materials designed by Dr. Montessori to meet their individual needs. While helping each child to develop their potential they learn cooperation and respect for themselves each other and their environment. Our aim is to help and encourage each child to gain confidence and skills to deal with the challenges in themselves, their families and the world at large. The development of each child's individuality is paramount. Montessori teaching methods ensure that the talents of each child are nurtured to achieve his or her full potential. The children are encouraged not just to learn but how to learn. Their horizons are challenged; they are encouraged to ask questions and to find the answers. Using the specialised Montessori equipment, the children work at different activities at their own pace. Because the child is constantly being stimulated and challenged, he or she develops a balanced active mind.

Mission: Offering individual attention in a cheerful and stimulating environment and a base from which to achieve their best possible academic, emotional and social success.

Beautiful rainbow art work I received today from Harry, one of our little pupils in The Children’s House Montessori 💛🌈

Great work Harry!

Wishing all the little children in my school a lovely weekend 💛
Stay safe 🌈
