I am a mother of 3 boys and they have had the wonderful benefit of going to Clarinbridge Montessori and Afterschool. Samantha and her amazing staff have been so genuinely caring and nurturing, and there is a wonderful atmosphere of respect, fun and professionalism.
Our journey to Clarinbridge Montessori & Afterschool began nearly 5 years ago when my eldest child was almost 4! He started Montessori and over time was followed by his 2 younger sisters. My 3 kids love the activities at Montessori and the staff! The staff are wonderful and have a genuine interest in the kids and are always available to talk and tell you stories about what your child said or did! Kids can bring in wellies and raingear and can play outside if the weather isn’t nice. There is a lovely secure outdoor area for them to play and outdoor toys too. I love looking at the Little Vista app to see pictures of what they got up to at montessori.
The transition from Montessori to school went really well and was very easy as the Montessori is on the school grounds.
My kids avail of the afterschool service also. It is like an extended playdate as lots of their friends attend also. Kids get a snack, do their homework and play games indoors or outdoors. They spend a lot of time outdoors and have use of the astro. My kids attend local activities (swimming, irish dancing etc) and the afterschool provide a drop and pick-up service to these. There is a breakfast club provided if we ever need to drop our kids early. Sometimes my kids are not happy if we pick them up early as they are having such a good time at afterschool! During school holidays, there are camps provided. These are excellent and there is a wide variety of activities provided each day.
Clarinbridge Montessori and Aftershcool is an excellent service. Staff are wonderful and have a great relationship with our kids. I highly recommend it.
Dear Samantha and Team, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work and for the excellent care, enjoyment, values, imagination and education you have given to our three children. We have been availing of the fantastic services you offer from Breakfast Club, Montessori, After School Club and all the holiday camps during the last 6 years. To say we would be lost without this wonderful service is an understatement as we both work full time. Early morning drop off’s are essential for us. Our children run in the door happy and content every day. They are greeted by you or your staff each morning with warmth and kindness. They are very happy in your care.
We have only the most positive things to say about their time at Clarinbridge Montessori & Afterschool. You really have created an amazing environment for children to learn and develop whilst having fun and feeling secure. Thank you for always treating our children like your own. It is very comforting to know how safe and secure my ‘babies’ are when they are in the care of Clarinbridge Montessori & Afterschool. Thank you. Denise & Henry
