About Pixies Montessori

Pixies Montessori School Cabinteely

Pixies Montessori is a vibrant, progressive Early Learning and Care setting for children from the age of two to six. Pixies provides a “Prepared Environment” that awakens the child’s senses and lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our dynamic curriculum and enviroment uses the Montessori Method alongside play, while preparing the children with 21st century skills.

The aim of Pixies is to develop the natural learning ability of each child to its fullest extent, allowing them to approach the rest of their educational life with immense advantage and confidence. Through proper and trained guidance, your child will be motivated to be a happy and confident child.

Tell me a fact and I’ll learn
Tell me a truth and I’ll believe
But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.
Pixies Early Childhood School

Maria Montessori

“The period of infancy is undoubtedly the richest. It should be utilised by education in every possible and conceivable way. The waste of this period can never be compensated. Instead of ignoring the early years, it is our duty to cultivate them with the utmost care.”


Albert Einstein

“Play is the highest form of research.”

Tailored Curriculum

Our curriculum is centered around play as this is a child’s method of early learning.

We have tailored our time to ensure that your child discovers that learning is fun! In our world, they discover all about the world they live in through fun learning in a safe and happy environment.

Children will learn to practice the skills they need for when they become adults.

Curriculum Principals:

We believe that children are competent learners, and our curriculum starts with the children’s interests and strengths.

Our curriculum is enriched by diversity and underpinned by equality.

Our curriculum is collaboratively negotiated.

Curriculum describes all the opportunities, experiences and events, whether planned or unplanned, that occur within our setting.

At Pixies we prepare children for “Tomorrow’s World”.  We encourage them to enjoy their childhood in a safe, secure and caring environment.  Each child is given the opportunity to fulfill their potential at their own pace, and to develop an enquiring mind.

We are always happy to talk with parents regarding any issue they have concerning their child.
