Kilmacow Montessori is a rural school with unspoilt views of the Comeragh Mountains. The school is fortunate to have such a beautiful natural environment with scenes of cattle-grazing or rabbits playing, an everyday occurrence.
The school’s focus on the natural world is essential as it allows students’ education to extend far beyond the limits of the classroom walls.

Reacting to the announcement Kilmacow Montessori School Founder, Helen Murphy-Walsh said:
I am deeply honoured and humbled to receive the Business All-Star Early Years Education Business Person 2023 accreditation. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Kilmacow Montessori team. We are committed to providing a nurturing and stimulating environment where children can thrive and reach their full potential. This recognition motivates us to continue our mission of delivering the highest quality early years education and care.
Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said: The accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.
He said: We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.
