Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE & Montessori)

Meet our Alumni Christine McEntee

We are very proud of our Alumni Christine McEntee, who began her studies in Early Childhood Care & Education Level 6 (Montessori) programme in 2016. Christine then decided to continue her studies and progress to the Degree in Early Childhood Care, Health & Education that Dorset College offered in collaboration with Letterkenny Institute of Technology.

Today, she is one of the Teachers at Castleknock Montessori School.

'I always wanted to work with children and always wanted to be a teacher, it was only when I went to Dorset College that I realised that dream through the support of the wonderful teachers and staff'.

Christine currently works at the same Montessori-School where she herself was a student, working alongside her former teacher.

She choose Dorset College because it is really affordable and she could do the course part-time, which allowed her to work simultaneously. 'Studying after work could be quite difficult, but the support from the lecturers was amazing. Without their support I could not have taken on a degree with the level of work involved, she remembers. 'You can contact the lecturers any time you need them - anything they can do for you, they will'.

'There’s a great social life in Dublin and I would recommend Croke Park for the Sunday game or a nice walk...Drumcondra is an up and coming place with a lot of great cafés and restaurants'.

'The programme I did gave me confidence and nurtured some traits in me that I didn’t even know I had. Dorset College definitely made me a more competent and helpful person. The lectures and the people you will meet are just amazing!'.
