“Feeling emotional and blessed thanks Goldilocks Montessori for all the love and
knowledge and unbelievable support and kindness you have shown Isabel. I am truly
thankful Isabel started there when she was 18 months old she has developed into such
caring and kind little girl. It amazes me the things she as learned . Thanks for preparing
her for the next chapter of her education words will never be enough. From the bottom of
my heart Thank you”

“Thanks Josephine amazing day at the Goldilocks Montissori graduation. The whole place
is a credit to you. The kids are blessed to have you.”
Thank you for everything over the past 4 years
Josephine. Caitlin, Emily and Nathan had a fantastic
time at Goldiocks. So sad today as the end of an era,
but we will definitely be back for a visit soon. Have a
great summer and thanks again.
"I am so glad I sent my 2 boys to Goldilocks. It gave
them a fantastic foundation for school. Josephine and
staff have a great understanding and respect for each
child. They made learning fun while achieving the
maximum academically, which gave my boys great
confidence starting school. My son's still look back on
their time at Josephine's as such a happy time. I
would recommend Goldilocks Montessori very highly,
and would like to thank Josephine for all her work."
"Over the 2 1/2 years that our girls have been at Goldlilocks Montessori we have watched them blossom and grow in every way from our own first day visiting the
school right up to now. Their staff have been so friendly and approachable, ready to advise and discuss, always putting the needs of each individual child at the heart
of their teaching.
The manner in which the material is taught and indeed the girls have learned has really fostered a huge sense of curiosity and excitement in them for their world and
the bigger world they live in and the people they may meet. The energy and enthusiasm which they talk about school life can only be fostered by a team of people
who are themselves enthusiastic by the Montessori method of teaching. The manner in which Goldilocks involves the children in the community is indeed also
fantastic and really good and really fostered in them a sense of being a real part of Oughterard. Josephine and her team are truly amazing. We are assured that our
girls will go forward with great confidence, curiosity and enthusiasm which as nurtured and grown by Goldilocks.
We say thank you and not farewell as indeed you will always be pals of ours and the girls lives."

"We are immensely grateful to you and the staff at Goldilocks for providing our son with such a bright and helpful start. We particularly appreciate how you helped him
to integrate with his peers socially as well as the Montessori approach to activities both curriculum and extra curriculum. He has benefited by your 1:1 attention as
well as required basic skills that will no doubt give him a head start when he heads off to school. Thank you again, wishing Goldilocks all the success. Sincerely Ali

" Paddy is our second child to attend Goldilocks Montessori Pre-School. We feel he has received a very 'special' introduction to early education, Josephine provides
a holistic approach to preschool education always with the child at the forefront. Paddy enjoyed the natural homely setting benefiting hugely from his interaction with
wildlife and in particular he loved following the seasons. His artwork brought home each week was a reflection of the great attention that each child enjoys from
Josephine, Therese and Ruth. Positivity and patience are characteristic in all Josephine's interactions with the children. I believe she sees every child’s potential and
aims to guide them gently to reach it. Maria Montessori's ethos is evident at Goldilocks Montessori. Josephine ensures the children have a strong sense of community
through involvement in local events which my child has thoroughly enjoyed."
