Shauna, a native of Kilmacow, first joined the Kilmacow Montessori School family as an After- School student during her primary school education and thrived within the environment. She thus went on to study Early Education and holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Degree in Early Childhood Care and Education. During her studies Shauna completed her work experience and training at our school and it was an honour to offer her a teaching position in September 2019. An accomplished athlete, with a flair for the creative arts, Shauna brings with her a youthful exuberance which will be
an invaluable asset to the education of children. In her spare time, Shauna enjoys socialising, walking, music and watching Netflix.
“I have always known that I wanted to work with children in some capacity, however, it was through my various work experiences at Kilmacow Montessori School from transition year onwards that I quickly realised this was the career path for me. My first work placement at Kilmacow Montessori School was for only one week, a short time, but it had a long-term lasting impact on my chosen path. I am continuously amazed by Kilmacow Montessori School, the staff, the impact it has on children’s lives, and the love everyone in the community has for it. I’m so happy to be working as part of a school that plays such an important role in my life and so grateful to work with such wonderful people and children, who make my job feel like the easiest thing in the world”.
On the 11th of January 2005, we opened Kilmacow Montessori School.
The school consists of two buildings with a large outdoor play area, which is particularly important for the children’s creative play. The original school is home to the Senior Class and our recent addition of a second classroom is home to our Junior Class starting their first year of Montessori.
Kilmacow Montessori has a rural aspect backing onto green fields with unspoilt views of the Comeragh Mountains and scenes of cattle-grazing or rabbits playing are an everyday occurrence. We are fortunate to have such a beautiful natural environment as it allows our students’ education to extend far beyond the limits of the classroom walls.
We are delighted to receive, for the third year in a row, our 'Best in Class', Business All-Star Accreditation for 2023 to 2024. This accreditation is in recognition of our school's conduct in trust, performance and customer-centricity. You can find our more about this reward here.
