GRADUATION AT THE ACORN
Graduation took place on Friday 13th July, 2012 which was very well attended by the families and friends of Tydavnet’s first set of ’Little Acorns’.
There were performances from all the children which made their Mums and Dads very proud, not to mention their Montessori teacher, Adrienne.
Some tears were flowing as a DVD showing some of the children’s activities throughout the school year was shown…tears of joy of course!
Congratulations to Eva, Conal, Jamie, Lucy, Josh and Dylan. We wish you lots of luck and happiness in your new classroom.

The Acorn Montessori Preschool and Afterschool is a privately run service based in the grounds of St. Dympna’s National School, Tydavnet Village.
The Acorn Preschool is run under the ethos and philosophy of the Montessori Method of Education. In Montessori it is the policy to help and allow the child to reach their full potential..whatever level that may be. Montessori is a unique method of education which looks at the development of the ‘whole’ child, socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and culturally.
We are registered to accept children for a FREE preschool place under the Government E.C.C.E. Scheme.
We are registered and approved by the H.S.E. and are inspected annually by the H.S.E. Preschool Services Inspection Team.
In The Acorn Afterschool we work with Primary School aged children, allowing them the opportunity to explore in the areas of art, drama, science, sport and cookery to name a few. All children are treated with the greatest of respect.
The Acorn provides the children with a stimulating, relaxed atmosphere in which to complete their homework. A fully qualified Montessori Primary teacher is available daily to assist with any difficulties a child may experience during our structured homework club.
Please feel free to visit our beautifully refurbished premises with a full range Montessori equipment.
