On Travels Through a Kingdom, Kaya stopped off at Milltowns new Montessori, where she received a very warm welcome from Carol Dempsey.
In 2016, Milltown Primary School moved into their new building, leaving their two old buildings dormant. One day Carol and her husband drove by and an idea struck Carol.
Carol has been a Montessori teacher for over 30 years. With a Montessori school already in Killarney, Carol decided to when she saw the old empty primary building, that she would give it life again. She tells Kaya how Maria Montessori is her hero and has followed in her footsteps all her life.
She tells Kaya the process of setting up, how kind the community of Milltown has been to her and her hopes and aspirations for the future of Montessori!
