Growing Tree, Claregalway
Unnamed Road County Galway IE

The Growing Tree Montessori School was established in June 1989 by Mary Fleming. The school was originally a one classroom school. The second classroom was opened September 1994, with the opening of the third classroom in September 2006.

Mary lectured with St Nicholas Montessori College on the BA in Humanities and Montessori Education course. Mary has also presented workshops to St Nicholas Montessori teachers on the Montessori approach to Language Development, Sensorial Education, Cultural Studies and Positive Behaviour in the Montessori classroom.

All teaching staff at The Growing Tree have completed their teacher training with St Nicholas Montessori Training College. The Growing Tree Montessori School is recognised as an educational establishment by the Department of Education under the umbrella of the Irish Montessori Education Board.

The Montessori Method is a child-centred philosophy of education which meets the needs of the individual child at each stage of his/her development. The goal of the school is to cultivate the child’s natural desire to learn. This objective is approached in two ways; by allowing each child to experience the excitement of learning by their own choice rather than by being forced and second, by helping them to perfect all their natural tools for learning so that their ability will be at a maximum in future learning situations.

All this work is carried out in the Prepared Environment of the Montessori Classroom. Through it, the child becomes eager to learn, independent, self-confident, and is more able to cope with our complex world.

The learning environments are maintained by fully trained staff. As each child develops physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally to his/her full potential, a strong sense of independence is fostered. Self-esteem and self-respect will grow so that the child will in turn respect others.

Our Curriculum offers Practical Life exercises, Sensorial activities, Music, Mathematics, Science, Language, Geography, nature activities, arts & crafts, school concert, patio and garden play areas.

At The Growing Tree Montessori School we aim to ensure that the unique qualities of each child is recognised by giving them a happy and secure learning environment.

ECCE grants are available for Montessori tuition.
