This list (correct in May 2015) comprises registered Montessori schools and those pre-school operators who have notified the HSE of their existence and are located in the environs of Monaleen. There are many others listed on the website from a little further afield. The full list for Limerick County can be found here:

The HSE listing does not suggest any form of approval. The website also advises that it is ultimately the responsibility of the parents/guardians to choose a childcare service which meets the individual needs of their children.

Finally the HSE advises that any queries regarding creches and pre-schools should be directed to the Limerick Pre-School Inspection & Information Services, phone 483591.

The Montessori register is maintained by the Irish Montessori Education Board (phone 01 2805705) and a list of all registered Montessori schools can be obtained from them.
