I know children who have been to all of those you mention! Just the one family, 2 children to Mars, for the bilingual aspect. They are both very sociable extrovert children. I know the parents were happy. St Andrews is really really popular. Very very nurturing and caring and I have only ever heard good stuff, except perhaps the cost which apparently is sky high. I also know children who have gone to the children's house and to Beckett House and again have never heard anything but praise for them. There are a lot of brilliant places available I don't think I have given you much information there though really have I?
