Pre Montessori/Montessori

We employ the Montessori system of education for young children that seeks to develop the natural interests and activities of the child. We also incorporate elements of the High/Scope curriculum, which is a consistent and flexible daily routine that provides for child and adult initiated activities.  Both programmes are covered by ECCE.


The ECCE programme is a universal programme available to all children within the eligible age range. It provides children with their first formal experience of early learning prior to commencing primary school. The programme is provided for three hours per day, five days per week over 38 weeks per year and the programme year runs from September to June each year. Childcare services taking part in the ECCE scheme must provide an appropriate Early Years educational programme which adheres to the principles of Síolta, the national quality framework for early years care and education.

Full-time/Part-Time Daycare

Partly subsidised by the non means-tested universal subsidy.

Sessional Playschool

For children not yet eligible for ECCE support.


Drop off & Pick Up and supervised homework available for school-age children & creche siblings.
