What do they say:

I was heartbroken to have to take Emily out of Primrose Montessori but unfortunately Australia beckoned. Nuala and Ann were incredibly kind and understanding in the weeks leading up to our departure and were only ever concerned with Emily's well being and happiness. Emily absolutely loved her time at Primrose Montessori. She would happily leave me in the morning and not look back. She was always a happy, chatty, friendly and intelligent child and the few short months that she spent with Nuala and Ann, further developed these traits. I can not recommend Primrose Montessori highly enough and only wish that Emily could have seen out her playschool years there.

What do they say:

All four of my children attended Primrose Montessori School. Nuala was excellent at harnessing their individual strengths, promoting independence and preparing them for ‘big school’.For me, as a parent where Primrose Montessori School excels is in the area of Special educational needs provision.My third child has Down Syndrome. He attended Primrose Montessori School for two years before starting mainstream school. He presented with some challenging behaviour & I worried would he be able to cope, would Nuala be able to cope & would he fit in. My fears were groundless. Nuala has an uncanny ability to meet the individual needs of every child while working in a group environment. My son flourished under Nualas expert care. We noticed significant improvements in his behaviour, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, independence & social skills. His two years with Nuala were invaluable in preparing him for mainstream school. His peers in preschool were totally accepting of him as children of that age can be. This proved invaluable later when some of those some children started mainstream primary school with him. I would have no hesitation in recommending Primrose Montessori School for any child but, in the case of a child with any Special Educational Need I would say Nuala excels at what she does.Today, my son has successfully completed mainstream primary school & is in 3rd year (special class) in mainstream secondary school.All four of my children loved going to preschool, making friends, bringing home their work, participating in Christmas shows & graduation concerts.

What do they say:

Our four children attended Primrose Montessori Preschool for two years each before starting school. I could not speak highly enough of Nuala Keane and her approach to the children. She treated all the children in her preschool as she would her own, with such kindness and individual attention. We felt it was like a home from home. Nuala was always completely open and approachable with us in every aspect of their care and education.

Our children had a wonderful introduction to the educational system. Nuala's family are very involved in Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann so music was an every day event in Primrose Montessori Preschool. After so many years with Nuala she became like part of our family. The children still talk about her with great fondness and always love to meet her. She got the most from each child and has a very unique way with all children.
