In doing this we hope to lay important foundations for the child's school years and life-long growth. Our school has been certified by the St. Nicholas Montessori Society of Ireland, one out of five on the north east. We are also a member of Early Childhood Ireland.

Child Development

At St. Lawrence Montessori School it is our aim to ensure that every child attending the school has suitable means of expression and development through the use of Montessori equipment, books, games and other materials having regard to his or her age and development.

Grainne Morris

Most of Grainne's experience in Montessori education came from her time as Head of the Montessori Unit (32 children) at Lansdowne Lodge Montessori and pre-school which is located on Shelbourne Road in Ballsbridge.

Grainne started there in May 2001 and opened her new school in Clontarf in 2008 where she has enjoyed immensely the experiences she has shared with the children that have passed through the school.

Play Area

The school is equipped with a large play area measuring over 80sqm. There is a synthetic grass surface with extra safe rubberised base that also drains quickly. This means that your child can use the play area even shortly after a rain shower. This ensures almost daily exercise for your child even during the winter months.

The play structure is made in Sweden by HAGS, a highly respected manufacturer whose products conform in full to the latest European Safety standards. For more, please visit http://www.hags.com/aboutus.asp?land=gb&link=3.

The play area is walled on all sides and can only be accessed by a security-controlled gate.

Montessori Materials

There is an extensive range of Montessori materials available to the children. These have been made by a Dutch company, Nienhuis Montessori, who specialise in the manufacture of the highest quality, most durable materials. For more, please visit http://www.nienhuis.com.
