Welcome to Saint Nicholas Montessori College

St. Nicholas Montessori College Ireland is a higher educational institution providing Montessori teaching through full-time, part-time, outreach and in-service programmes. It is committed to providing access and opportunity to students of all ages and backgrounds. It aims to provide a positive, inclusive atmosphere and environment based on the mutual co-operation of all involved in its activities.

It contends that the principles of respect and empowerment which apply to children’s education must also be applied to adult learners and teachers. Consistent with these values, a working Montessori primary school is an integral part of the organisation.

St. Nicholas Montessori College desires to promote Montessori education and develop Montessori educators of the highest quality, who will serve and support the child within all sectors of the Irish care and education system.

With 3 locations in Ireland we provide full time and access courses from our campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick.
