Welcome to Toddle Inn Montessori Preschool

Welcome to Toddle Inn Montessori Preschool web site, which I hope you find informative and helpful.

Toddle Inn Montessori Pre-School was founded in 2000, it is situated in a purpose built building in Castlejane Woods within walking distance of Glanmire village and Riverstown. Toddle Inn has three classrooms which offer sessional Montessori preschool for children between the ages of 2½ - 5 years. In September 2015 we opened a Naíonra class in which children will be learning through the Montessori method and the medium of Irish.

Toddle Inn Montessori is also recognised by the HSE as Health Promoting Preschool after successful completion and assessment on the Healthy Smart Start training programme.

We are also affiliated with the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and offer the ECCE scheme. This entitles your child to free preschool after they have turned 3 years.

Our objective at Toddle Inn Montessori Preschool is to help our children reach their full potential, while becoming well balanced individuals able to cope with emotional, social and practical pressures from modern day life.

We are firm believers that the Montessori Method of education provides a range of experiences which will stimulate a child’s love of learning and discovery.

Our role is to encourage positive attitudes to help create strong individuals and to give guidance to the children. All our children are treated with respect, given the freedom within the limits of a carefully structured environment and allowed to develop at their own pace.

Toddle Inn recognises that children develop and learn in different ways, at different rates and that all areas of learning and development are equally important and interconnected. Children are active learners and will learn from the environment if it offers the appropriate stimuli to their development.
