The Big Toddle… ?



Last week Amy Cooney called to my house. Mary, her Mom, runs the Village Montessori. I’m handed an envelope and asked can it be put up on the website.

P: What is it Amy…?

A: Aah the children in the Montessori took part in a sponsored Toddle in aid of Barnardos….

P: What the…. a toddle….?

A: Ah they did laps of the GAA pitch

What the….? I’ve seen the GAA team training for the Junior Cup… thats a bit tough on a 2 or 3 year old I thought….

p: Sorry….?

A: Ah you know at their own pace, like only a bit, a few metres or whatever of a walk, whatever they could…

So I get it now. A walk. A waddle. A toddler. A sponsored toddle. I read the letter and I was blown away….

Little Feet Take On Big Feet!

In aid of Barnardos, Toddle Team Village Montessori took part in the Danone Big Toddle on Wednesday 19th May. 18 children did the sponsored walk big toddle and so far have raised €646

People can still sponsor the Big Toddlers at

*My apologies for not having this up sooner but, ye know the whole computer crash thing…. also the images had to be scanned in so…. I did my best 😉

*also: I only count 17 in the above image…. I hope I didn’t leave anyone out. Let me know and it can be resolved very easily.

Well done to all. I personally think this kind of story should make the 9 o’ clock news
