What a fun way to learn about life, emotions, and the world around us, driving bin lorries and other fascinating vehicles, past times, the mysteries of travel to space, exploring under oceans and going on Safari. Sometimes we just want to be worms, wind or ghosts! At Noelle’s Montessori we bring life to our imaginations! Face painting, miming, voice projection, music, costumes, and puppets are all tools that we use.
What fun it is to make shapes with our bodies, or become clockwork toys in a toy house. Following instructions, comprehension and carrying out the tasks set for us all is super fun, when one is becoming a rolling ball, a robot, even a square! We use musical, instructive C.D’s to add another dimension to the children’s time with us.
As we tend to be an active bunch and just love to climb, jump, sing, twirl, roll, and crawl, acrobats is an amazingly fun and challenging addition to our week.
The children love this activity so much they now work as a team to create their own obstacle courses in the garden!
Noelle’s Montessori is a sessional pre-school, with the goal of allowing your child to learn in a safe, welcoming and creative environment. All of the equipment runs alongside the learnings of Montessori siolta & amp; aistear, which are recommended by the Irish government. Our aberration of your child ensures specific development needs are met.
All guidelines and ratios will be adhered too, as governed by the Early Years Inspection Services. 1 Adult to 11 children.
Maria Montessori developed her idea how to enhance children’s lives by witnessing children in orphanages play with their food, rolling peas. Maria Montessori realized that these children didn’t have any toys for stimulation and hence used their food before they consumed it. The idea was that objects can be used for many different purposes. For examples simple clothes pegs can be used to hang out clothes or to develop the pincer grip, strengthening children’s hands. Maria Montessori also wanted every child to be equal and designed her equipment so that different ages and abilities could work play at alongside each other. Fair, even and interesting for each child’s personality and ability, which also links in with our governments Siolta and Aistear initiatives. We spend mornings doing group activities and individual activities, children choosing from open shelves full of wonderful equipment to explore, have fun with and develop. We observe children in groups and individually to see how we can help the whole child grow organically and at their own pace.Contact us

Hello my name is Noelle O’Sullivan, I have studied Montessori Nursery & Nursing, working with pre school children for just under 20 years. I would like to welcome you into our fabulous pre-school where we know your child and your family will feel welcomed and happy.
My daughter attended Noelle’s Montessori preschool for many years since she was 2yrs of age she is now almost fifteen years of age, and has always managed to have good grades I firmly believe that Noelle’s Montessori has been an enormous help to her self-esteem and confidence to succeed whatever the task might be.
Noelles Montessori is a great combination of independent learning and professional instruction.
So much so, I had to drive my very upset 2 year old daughter to Noelle's to prove it was not open on Saturdays...

Hi,I’m 14 years old and still remember the fun I had in Montessori at Noelle’s (my mum’s). The photos and videos of the performances are hilarious and cute. I still have friends both male and female that started when I was two! The freedom, direction and encouragement paved the way for the enjoyment and education I have had at school.

Fond Memories from 2003
We had tried to settle our daughter into a number of pre-schools but she was miserable and cried a lot. After a few sessions at Noelle’s she was delighted with herself – running in with out a backwards glance. It has a lovely atmosphere, the children really enjoy themselves and learn a lot too. I am sorry we are moving abroad and hope we will find such a lovely place again.
Our little boy had a wonderful time at Noelle’s Montessori, every day running in to see Noelle, Alanna and his friends. Non-stop fun was had and we really enjoyed watching performances the children loved to do. I felt there was a really organic and loving feel to Noelle’s.

Thank you so much
As a parent I wanted to know my son was safe, having fun, and developing his mind. Information was regularly passed onto me through emails and at pick up times. I loved the photos that would randomly appear from his morning at pre-school and all the lovely art work that came home we proudly displayed.
Love the artwork!
During an autumn nature hunt a little girl was holding my hand and skipping along beside me, she looked up at me and said, that it would be awful if you had to work Noelle. I smiled and said yes! because I love what I do everyday...

After falling during morning break and hurting his thumb, a boy told me during a counting lesson “I can’t be a monkey on the bed today.” When I asked why? he said, “because it hurts when I make a 9.” (He was using his fingers to add!!!) I told him to make the “four” with his other hand!
