“A lovely welcoming atmosphere”

“I felt a real sense of sadness the day Daniel finished up his preschool year at A Breath of Fresh Air as both of us had enjoyed the experience so much. Mary and Breda were always so positive and encouraging and created a lovely welcoming atmosphere for both pupils and parents. It gave me great piece of mind to know that he was in such good hands. He made some lovely friends and really enjoyed all the extra activities like the Easter egg hunt, Christmas play, sports day and dress up day! We have some lovely photos and memories of his time there.”

“A brilliant foundation for school”

“Both of our boys absolutely loved every minute of their time in A Breath of Fresh Air. Our eldest has been going there since he was 10 months old and is just about to start at school. He has a brilliant foundation for school due to Sue and Maeve’s pre-school year and has made so many friends during his time at there. Our younger son is still in crèche and has learned so much from the fantastic staff there. He is excited to be going ‘upstairs’ to Martha’s in September! The crèche has been wonderful for both of the boys and has made juggling working and childcare so easy and stress free for us both.”

“The location on the farm is beautiful”

“My daughter attended A Breath of Fresh Air junior Montessori and absolutely loved it. I couldn’t believe how much she picked up with her language and other areas without feeling like she was in a very formal environment. She loved the teachers and couldn’t wait to head in everyday. The staff are friendly and the location on the farm is beautiful. She’s really looking forward to her ECCE year there now and we have great piece of mind sending her back again.”

“The staff demonstrate real commitment”

“We are really pleased with the care and attention our daughter receives at A Breath of Fresh Air. The staff demonstrate real commitment, interest and enthusiasm every day. They are very flexible in meeting our daughters needs and remember lots of details about her. She loves going to crèche and has learned so much.”

“The staff are exceptional and so devoted and caring”

“Our little girl has attended A Breath of Fresh Air since she was 9 months old, now 3 she has loved every day, playing and making friends. Our little boy, now 1 year old has just started and adores the social interaction with the other babies and children. The staff are exceptional and so devoted and caring. They made the transition to childcare very easy for us, which is a huge weight off any working mothers mind! The location and farm setting makes it more special for the children. I simply couldn’t recommend A Breath of Fresh Air more highly to parents. If you want a happy, safe child – A Breath of Fresh Air is the place.”

“The children loved visiting the chickens after school”

“My son attended the ECCE year in Aghamarta (A Breath of Fresh Air) Montessori and truly loved his time there. The atmosphere in the school is lovely and the teachers are friendly and really helped the children to settle in. Each week of the year is well planned with each week having a designated colour and number or letter. I found it to be a fantastic preparation for big school…There are also lots of seasonal events throughout the year as well as plenty of time spent outdoors. Being located on a working farm was a big plus for us..the children loved visiting the chickens after school and looking at the tractors in the surrounding fields – what an idyllic location! I would highly recommend this montessori school.”
