Aims & Objectives

Wicklow Montessori Primary School is a child-centred primary school where the children from 3 years to 12 years are taught according to ability as opposed to age, at the same time fulfilling the requirements of the Curriculum prescribed by the Department of Education and Science.

The development of each child's individuality is paramount. Montessori teaching methods ensure that the talents of each child are nurtured to achieve his or her full potential.

We aim to develop confident, self-reliant young adults with individual personalities in a relaxed and happy atmosphere.

The children are encouraged not just to learn but how to learn. Their horizons are challenged, they are encouraged to ask questions and to find the answers.

Using the specialised Montessori equipment, the children work at different activities at their own pace. Because the child is constantly being stimulated and challenged, he or she develops a balanced active mind.

It is school policy that every child participates in all school activities, including drama, sports and school plays to the best of his or her ability.
