Eager Einsteins Montessori Opens in Whitegate

By Seamus Whelehan


East Cork parents now have even more childcare options following the opening of Eager Einsteins Montessori in Whitegate.

Parents eager for a unique learning environment for their young Einsteins are being invited to an Open Day tomorrow, Friday 18 January between 1:15pm and 3:00pm.

Located on the grounds of Whitegate National School the new Montessori facility takes a fun nurturing approach to learning, catering for children aged two and a half to five and a half.

The Whitegate facility also offers programmes under the Government free pre-school year.

At first glance it’s easy to tell that Eager Einsteins is not your average pre-school.

From its location overlooking Cork harbour to a dedicated secure outdoor learning space, there’s something different and special about the place.

Montessori is a child centred approach to learning which is based on scientific observations of children,that has been used for over 100 years.

With many years’ experience using the Montessori Method, Pre-School owner Ailbhe Young is offering East Cork Pre-Schoolers a new educational experience.

Ms Young says “the new facility will help equip young children with the necessary life and academic skills to give them every advantage when starting primary school.”

The facility is clean and bright and caters for small numbers, allowing staff to devote their time to your child’s care and development.

A team of 2 teachers will work with ten children individually to help develop empathy, self-esteem and self-confidence. Space is limited to 20 children.
