"ALL THE STAFF ARE LOVELY"
Read More

"I can highly recommend Mullingar Montessori & The Den After School Care service.

Our 2 girls attend The Den and they so enjoy it there.

They get a nice little walk down from Holy Family school, chatting to their friends, then do their homework in a warm caring environment before enjoying some creative play time.

They are full of news about the day at collection time and it’s lovely to hear all about the fun they have at the Den.

And of course all about Bernie’s wonderful delicious meals keeping tummies full and satisfied!

All the staff are lovely. We are lucky to have to have this wonderful service in Mullingar."

"My daughter started in the toddler room age two and has gone through ECCE Year 1 & 2 and is now in After School.

She has loved every one of her teachers there and went into junior infants 100% prepared.

The staff are amazing including Bernie who has the magic touch at getting kids to eat their healthy dinners.

She has made life long friends and already has 1000’s of memories having fun, playing with the pet animals and learning lots of skills."

Our children love it here and we appreciate the staff so much who are always professional and kind in their communications.

The facilities are amazing. you can tell some amount of time, investment, and creativity goes into keeping the children happy, active, & looked after.

Our kids especially love playing alongside chickens & rabbits on the playground.

They look forward to summer camp & Christmas time festivities the den offers as well."

"VERY CARING STAFF"
Read More

"I would highly recommend Mullingar Montessori and The Den After School.

All three of our children have attended, between their Toddler Service, the ECCE Service,

Full Day Care and now the After School Care Service. We have only had a good experience over the years.

They have a fantastic facility with very caring staff and Ursula Keenan keeps improving it year on year.

Their Christmas Show is just the sweetest thing you’ll ever see, and it astounds me every year how the staff manage to direct such little kids in such a fun and entertaining way.

I would definitely give Mullingar Montessori five stars. It’s great to know your children are being so well looked after and are learning whilst making friends and enjoying themselves. You couldn’t ask for more. "

They have made wonderful little friends in a learning and supportive environment.

The staff are super caring, patient and lots of fun.

They have amazing outdoor play facilities for all sessions.

"HE ADORES HIS TEACHER"
Read More

"My son joined year 2 room 6 Montessori in September and I have to say he's just at the end of his first term and he's the happiest little boy ever.

he looks forward to attending every day and cries when he can't attend if he's unwell.. he's almost writing his name where as he couldn't even hold a pencil before this.

He's reading books at home .. before .. he wouldn't take his books out ...

The Montessori itself is every child's dream equipped with the most beautiful and high standard facilities.

The Staff are wonderful, helpful, kind and caring .. Sean Is loving every moment of his time here.. he's a very happy and lucky boy.. he adores his teacher Ann Marie .. well done to Ursula and all the staff that make this Montessori a magical and educational environment for our children .. highly recommended and 5 stars from Mum Dad and Seán Turner"

"KIDS LOVE GOING IN THERE"

"Having put 4 of my kids in so far I couldn’t be more happy to have them there.

The staff are so helpful and my kids love going in there, always aware of what is happening and knowing what your kiddos do for the month getting pics and making sure they settle well.

I couldn’t recommend the Montessori enough.

Ursula will go above and beyond to accommodate all your needs and help with any issues that would arise.

Lots of hard work on everyone side and you know your little one would be ready for big school when the day comes.

Thanks so much for always looking so well after them and us when needed."
