"The most important period of life is not the time of University studies, but the first one the period from birth to the age of six. That is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed."
DR MARIA MONTESSORI
"We found guidance, friendship, discipline and love ... everything in one place ... Tara House”
"The newborn is the creator of the adult personality, for we find in the newborn our own hidden nature."
DR MARIA MONTESSORI
"Both my children have had a fantastic start to their school lives because of Tara House it is a very special place”
"The care, love and attention that my child has received from all at Tara House has been outstanding and has just given him the best start to school a child could possibly have”

What makes Tara House
Montessori Nursery School unique?

At Tara House, all children will be treated as individuals and their potential will be recognised, valued and nurtured. We have created a safe, welcoming child friendly environment where children can express themselves freely and confidently. The activities and use of the play equipment will offer the children opportunities to develop in an environment free from prejudice and discrimination.

Tara House was established in 1980 by Helena Ramsahoye. Nadia her daughter now owns and manages this family run nursery with passion and dedication for the children in her care.

THE SCHOOL YEAR consists of three terms with a week’s half-term in each term.
MORNING SCHOOL HOURS 9.00am – 12.30pm Monday to Friday
AFTERNOON SCHOOL HOURS 1.00pm – 3.30pm/4.15pm Monday to Thursday
FULL DAY-CARE 9.00am – 3.30pm/4.15pm Monday to Thursday and 9.00 – 12.30pm on Fridays

We also run LUNCH CLUB/ AFTERNOON AD HOC SESSSIONS from Monday to Thursday. This allows parents greater flexibility in their child care, whereby children can stay for lunch (from 12.30pm – 1.30pm), or an afternoon (from 1.00pm – 3.30pm/4.15pm) or a full day (from 9.00am – 3.30pm/4.15pm) – all on an ad hoc basis.

Tara House also provides a SUMMER CLUB for three weeks in August. Summer school hours are from 9.00am – 12.30pm with an option to stay for lunch until 1.30pm. You can either book a ‘Lune and Wild’ hot lunch or bring in a packed lunch.
