The Mission of St. Lawrence Montessori School is to provide an environment that fosters the growth and development of the whole child, allowing him / her to develop their own natural learning ability to its fullest. It is our Mission to nurture confidence, independence and creativity in our students while they learn, paying special attention to social development. In doing this we hope to lay important foundations for the child’s school years and life-long growth. Our school has been certified by the St. Nicholas Montessori Society of Ireland, one out of five on the north east. We are also a member of Early Childhood Ireland.
