Welcome To Little Acorns

Our aim is to help children reach their full potential and inspire children to demonstrate positive learning dispositions towards learning at preschool and beyond.
FIVE AREAS OF THE MONTESSORI CLASSROOM
TRAINING THE SENSES
LANGUAGE & ARTS
At Little Acorns Montessori Playschool we believe that each child is special and unique. We strongly believe in the Montessori Method of education in developing each child’s independence and confidence. At Little Acorns ‘Montessori’ means:
Freedom With Responsibility
In the Montessori classroom your child is allowed the freedom to choose their own work within the boundaries of the curriculum and with the expectation of appropriate behaviour towards others.
Concrete to abstract
Dr Maria Montessori discovered that your child develops academic skills best by starting with manipulative materials, and through their use, progresses developing abstract understanding of the world around them.
Development of the Whole Child
At Little Acorns attention is given to social, emotional and physical growth with a focus on the development of each child’s self-confidence and self-discipline. Through our service’s Montessori based integrated preschool curriculum your child will glide into primary school with confidence, excellent social skills and a respect for others and their environment.
Love of Learning
The Montessori environment serves to preserve and nature your child’s innate love of learning. At Little Acorns Montessori Playschool aim to help each child reach their full potential through meaningful play and life experiences.
Quality & Curriculum
Little Acorns Montessori Playschool strive to achieve excellence in all areas of quality care. Teaching staff continue to refer to the quality framework of Siolta and support the curriculum framework of Aistear.
