Established in 2021, Page One focuses on providing a new, fresh approach to delivering exceptional levels of educational care for children in early years settings. In our purpose-built, modern facilities, we adopt child-centred educational and social methods including Montessori and intergenerational activities. These are proven methods designed to give your child the best possible start on their journey through life. Our team of dedicated and talented carers is committed to making a real difference to the education and wellbeing of children who attend Page One. Each and every staff member has been carefully selected for their extraordinary achievements both academically and personally, their vast experience, and their compassionate attitude towards working with children. All members of our team are Garda vetted and hold a minimum QQI level 5 childcare or Level 7/8 Early Childhood Education & Care (BA).
At Page One, we have chosen the Montessori method as our curriculum. The Montessori method is holistic and recognises that children learn in different ways. Students learn at their own pace, and according to their own learning plan. The classroom is built to suit the student, putting every learning tool within their reach, for them to seek out independently and to use. The Montessori method encourages empathy, a passion for social justice, and a joy in lifelong learning. As a result, Montessori students are confident, enthusiastic and independent. Research also indicated that Montessori students have stronger social and emotional skills in many areas.
