Naíonra na Seanscoile


Naíonra na Seanscoile is an Irish-language Montessori preschool in Lucan. Our múinteoir is a graduate of St. Nicholas Montessori College and has full recognition as a stiúrthóir from Forbairt Naíonraí Teoranta.


Language Acquisition


At Naíonra na Seanscoile we don’t ‘teach’ the children Irish. We embrace the Montessori ethos and deliver a Montessori preschool experience to our little ones, all while immersing them in the Irish language.


Irish is the language the teachers speak to the children from their first day in September and experience shows that the children accept this as the norm. The children speak in English to the teachers initially, but over the year will begin to add single Irish nouns into their English sentences and maybe some strings of Irish words before the year is out. The important thing at preschool level is that they are absorbing the new language and understanding it.


Montessori Programme


The naíonra is well-stocked with Montessori preschool materials, and all teachers are qualified in Montessori and Childcare as well as having fluency in Irish. For more information on the Montessori preschool programme, click on the Montessori Programme link. While the Montessori Language programme will be limited by the need to use the Irish language as opposed to English, all other areas of the Montessori preschool programme will be provided in the naíonra.
