Parent Testimonials

Some of our parents have said very kind words about us… here are just a few.

Cliona Dunne

“As a parent of Hedley Park I wanted to post some feedback for parents thinking about sending their children or child to this school. Both of my daughters have attended Hedley Park from age 2 and I can only most sincerely tell you that it is just the best school for your child. The staff are amazing, the Principal Ashley is just so professional and caring to all of the children and parents. I have always felt that my children have been given the best start in life attending this school. I am very sad that our time is now passed with Hedley Park Montessori School but I can only say that I have had only wonderful experiences for both myself and my family. The girls have gone to the National Art Gallery, The Georgian House and many many more amazing places, with the school. All the children get to experience lots of cultural diversity and they learn about different traditions not just the Irish ones. It is truly as good as it gets in this school. What you see and what you read on the school website is exactly and more of what happens in daily life at Hedley. To summarise it all Hedley Park is Professional, Caring, Nurturing and above all has great teachers who love what they do.”


Hi Ashley,

I thought I’d let you know that Oscar, the small boy who had so much energy that you wondered if we couldn’t get him to bounce for half an hour on his trampoline each morning before we brought him in, in order to work off some energy, is off to Amsterdam in August to do a masters in philosophy. Who’d have thought? Except perhaps, you. You had such faith in him! He’s 6 ft 3 now, by the way!

Amy is married with two babies, Oliver, who is three and three months, which is exactly the age she was when she started with you, and Rupert, who is eight months. They moved to Mullingar two years ago and she works in marketing, like her Mama.

You didn’t really know the other two. Sara lives and works in Galway and my baby, Hugo, is just finished first year in Galway university, studying philosophy like his big brother.

Amy and Oscar remember their time with you SO clearly it’s incredible. What an impression you made on them. And what a wonderful start they got with you. We were talking about you today (NOT an unusual occurrence) and I thought I’d let you know where your little alumni had got to.

I’m definitely coming to say hello when I’m next in Dublin.

Love to Mairead, Fionnuala and anyone else who is still there from the old days.

Kindest Regards,

Deirdre O’Kane.

  2. Ashley,
    Hello from America! Our daughters, Elizabeth and Molly, who you may remember as the Wicked Witch and Dorothy, respectively, write from “over the rainbow” where Elizabeth is finishing her degree in Applied Mathematics at The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Viginia and Molly is in her third year at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia where she is studying Clinical Psychology and playing tennis competitively. We have fond memories of Hedley and of you!

  3. <Dear Ashley Im sure you cant remember all the little ones who spent time with you there at Hedley Park. But we all remember you and all the staff at Hedley. By chance today I sat down in the Vets (with my other dog baby) beside another Mum who remembered me and my daughter from being there at the same time as her son. It brought back a flood of happy memories of those years Sarah spent at Hedley. They were some of the happiest. We still remember Fionuala and of course Aoife and Mairead. I hope all is well with you all. Sarah will be 24 soon and has grown into a lovely strong young woman. We will always remember our days at Hedley with great fondness.
