Play Based / Montessori

At Fonthill Lodge children learn through a Play-based curriculum as outlined in "Aístear". The 3 – 6 year olds at Fonthill follow the Montessori Programme in the morning.

We recognise how important high-quality early childhood experience is in children’s lives. Our Curriculum aims to encourage active learning, problem solving, effective communication, creativity and socialisation. It aims to give children a good start which will benefit their long-term success in life.  Fonthill Lodge recognises the diversity of experiences and relationships that shape children’s lives.
