Welcome to Gilford Montessori and After School offering Montessori education in Dublin 4. At Gilford, Edel McCarthy and her niece, Ulla McCarthy, have created a unique Montessori environment. Students are encouraged to explore as they learn new skills and connect, collaborate and problem solve with their classmates.
Gilford staff are highly qualified and fully trained Montessori teachers and carers. We offer each child individualised guidance and new challenges in a purposefully prepared, warm, caring Montessori environment.
With over 30 years combined Montessori teaching experience, and as parents themselves, Edel and Ulla strive to develop caring, curious and confident children who are well equipped to integrate into a wide range of learning environments.
Gilford Montessori offers morning Montessori classes for children aged 3 to 6. Our morning class is from 08:50 until 12:15.
We take an individualised approach to learning and our Montessori teachers strive to encourage each child to reach his / her full potential.
