About Sunflower Montessori

Sunflower Montessori was established in Kiltiernan NS in September 2007 by Teresa James who is a qualified Montessori teacher, FETAC Level 6. The Montessori is HSE compliant and all staff are qualified as per terms of ECCE scheme.

Staff are well qualified and there is a low teacher:pupil ratio.


At Sunflower Montessori we aim to provide a caring and safe environment for children that is nuturing, and where the self-esteem of the children develops thus enabling them to reach their potential.

We encourage the children to develop in many areas so that they become more independent in preparation for primary school. Also to develop their social, motor, physical and language skills in an environment that embodies the Montessori principles of respect for each other and our environment.
