Parents of Tom, a Little Cherub from 2017 to 2018.
Tom loved his time in Joan’s / Little Cherubs during 2017 and 2018. He looked forward to going each day and enjoyed the variety of activities (both work and play!) that Joan had planned for any given day. We found Joan to be a great teacher with an obvious love for what she does – she kept us fully informed of progress throughout the year, listened to any questions we had and took a genuine interest in Tom’s development. We would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Joan’s / Little Cherubs as a perfect Montessori.

Sending our son to Little Cherubs has been an excellent experience.
Little Cherubs is so welcoming, it has a lovely warm atmosphere making it a great place for learning. We couldn’t believe how quickly our son settled in and how he has become so independent. He absolutely loves going to preschool. So much so that on school holidays he constantly asks ‘mammy, is it time to go back to school yet?’!!
Joan is so natural with the children. They adore her. There is a brilliant balance between work and play. The garden is a great space for outdoor activities. Joan always welcomes communication for whatever reason to see how your child is getting on and feedback on your child’s progress is continuous.
It has been a great year and our son will definitely miss Little Cherubs when he sets off for primary school in September.

My daughter Sarah has attended Little Cherubs’ Montessori for the last two years and will finish this summer to go to primary school. as excited as she is to go to “big school”, the last day in Little Cherubs’ Montessori will be a sad one. It has been her home away from home for the last two years, a place where she has not only learnt so much, but has felt secure, loved and cared for by Joan.
I have a big box of her work at home , colouring, number and letter practice, all showing the progress she has made. She has brought home snowy Santas, Easter chicks and she can sing about the Irish flag for Saint Patrick’s day. We have had birthday parties and play dates, she’s learned about mindfulness for when it gets a bit too much. On sunny days she has played in the garden and has learned how to plant flowers and help them grow.
She heads off to Montessori every morning with excitement and I feel lucky to have had Joan in our lives for the last two years and the happy memoriesSarah has made in Little Cherubs’.

We are very happy that we have chosen Little Cherubs Montessori. Joan is very experienced and talented teacher. She treats all the children with love, respect and great patience. Our son loves going to this preschool. He already made enormous progress since he started.
Thank you so much for all the kindness, clear directions, teaching and guidance our son received in this preschool.
We would highly recommend Little Cherubs Montessori to everyone.

We are delighted to recommend Little Cherubs Montessori. Joan offers a warm and friendly environment and our daughter has thrived since starting there. It definitely has a home from home feel about it.
Zoe bounces in and out of school every day and the other children seem to do the same. By the time the two week Easter holidays were coming to an end, Zoe was saying that she missed Joan and wanted to go back to school to see her. She has made great friends in Little Cherubs and has great fun there.
Joan has instilled great skills this year and we feel that the transition to “big school” next year will be an easy one as a result.
I would highly recommend Little Cherubs Montessori for any child.

Our son James has been attending Little Cherubs for the last two years.
We are very happy with his progress and development since he started attending.
James’ confidence has grown immensely and he is a very happy boy which we greatly attribute to Joan.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Little Cherubs to a prospective parent.
