We would like to express our sincere thanks to Davnet and her dedicated team at Ennis Montessori school (EMS) for the excellent care and attention our son has received over the past 2 years at EMS. Special thanks to Clare & Aoife for their kindness & patience. EMS is a warm, caring, nurturing environment, enabling children to develop, grow & learn. There’s an impressively broad curriculum and children are introduced to many concepts; to explore their creativity, the natural world, music, arts, crafts & baking to name a few, and to learn social and personal skills to help them manage in the world. They learn how to work happily in an independent capacity but also in groups, enabling great friendships to be formed. Since our son started “big school”, we now avail of the wonderful afterschool service at EMS, where dinner is provided, homework is supervised before having fun with his friends.
We would have no hesistation in recommending EMS to other parents, it is a wonderful bridge between home and the start of primary school.

The first time I went into Ennis Montessori School was to collect my niece, Meadhbh. I was very late, after a mix-up in times, but Meadhbh was playing away happily and the Montessori teacher was really nice and understanding. It was a very good first impression of the place and, over ten years on, I still get that really warm and friendly vibe every day I walk in the door with my son Sean. His eldest brother Thomas was also in EMS for two years and, although 9 now, he still often fondly talks about his teachers from that time, Selena and Ciara. Sean had a great Teenyboppers year with Marie last year and he runs in the door every day now to Claire and Mary’s class, just as he did when he had Claire and Ashling teaching him before Christmas. The people in EMS always have, and continue to, make it such a warm, friendly and conducive place for our kids as they learn to take those first schooling steps in life.

Davnet and all her girls are just so fantastic with all the children. I have had two of my kids spend two years each at Ennis Montessori School and with each class and each teacher we thought they had formed such a bond with their teachers how will they settle in the next class – because of the kindness, absolute love and patience at times!!! my boys just thrived in their new class and enjoyed learning and playing with these hand picked teachers.
I could go on and on – what they learn is amazing and the people that come into visit or the visits they do to the firestation, Lees road, the cinema etc. – all such wonderful experiences and memories.
As every mother wants for their kids – a home from home.

I could not recommend Ennis Montessori School highly enough. Davnet and her team create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which respect, learning and encouragement are key values. Standards of excellence abound.
My kids are very happy there! Every day when we leave them there, I feel they are safe, cared for and stimulated. It’s such a fun place too! Top marks for Ennis Montessori School.

Ennis Montessori School is a “Centre of Excellence” in the service that it provides to young children. Davnet and her wonderful staff are amazing! They ensure that the children’s’ interests & well being are what matters most. The curriculum for pre-schoolers is just bursting with so much that they are well set up for starting school. We are so lucky in Ennis to have such a gem on our doorsteps.
