The Montessori Trip

The Montessori trips to the Grove Gardens and Open farm were very successful! The children all had a brilliant time visiting the animals and playing together.


Summer Camp 2013

A reminder to all parents that places are still available in our Summer Camp this year. If you wish to send your child to summer camp this year please do not hesitate to contact Rachel or Victoria for bookings or further information.


Parents Evening

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents who attended our parents evening. We hope you all found this beneficial to you and enjoyed meeting with other parents and staff members. Mother Hubbards operates an open door policy at all times to all parents at any time and not just on these events.


Staff Update

At this time we would like to inform all parents about our recent staff changes. We would like to wish Geraldine Mc Cabe all the best for the future as she will not be returning from her maternity leave. Bridget Mc Cabe has returned to work here in the centre with us as a relief worker, Bridget has previously worked with us as you may be aware of in our Pre-Montessori room. We also have Grace Dowdall and Niamh Mc Inytre working with us also as relief workers, both girls have been with us as students for the last year and Grace has recently completed her Montessori diploma and Niamh is currently studying her FETAC level 5 in childcare. Stephanie Campbell has left us to pursue a career in Primary School Teaching but will return to us in August as a relief worker also. Maura Fagan in our Montessori room will finish up with us for the summer months. At this point we would like to wish all staff past and present a very happy summer.
