Baby Room (Fully booked for 2022/2023)

Ages 6 months - 18 months

Room Leaders: Louise Stewart & Gillian Hogan

Children must be at least 6 months old before they can be left in our baby room.  Once here, they are treated with all the love and care possible in your absence.  We work in harmony with parents to establish routines and feeding habits.​ We understand that many parents, particularly first time parents, struggle leaving their small children in the hands of others and it is our mission to make this transition as smooth as possible for everyone concerned.​ If you would like your details added to the waiting list for the baby room, please email us and include the following information: Baby's date of birth, requirements (days per week), and a contact phone number)

Toddler Room (Fully booked for 2022/2023)

Ages 18 months - 2 years

Room Leaders: Aisling Leonard & Sarah Jane Clare

Children must be at least 18 months old before they progress into our wobbler room, the newest room addition at Butterflies. This is an easy transition from the baby room. Not only is it right next door, so they can still pop in to get a 'Maggie hug' when they need it, but the toys are age appropriate for exploring young minds and their small and large motor skills are tested at every turn. Sharp corners are nowhere to be found.  It's not called the wobbler room for nothing! If you would like your details added to the waiting list for the toddler room, please email us and include the following information: child's date of birth, requirements (days per week), and a contact phone number)

Busy Bees Playschool (9-12) (FULL for 2022/2023) 

Ages From 2 years

Room Leader: Sam Byrne (Busy Bees)
                  Sarah Jane Clare (Playschool)

 

Agh the terrible twos!  Here at Butterflies we have learned the secret to surviving these inquisitive years.  Keep them busy, busy, busy!  Those little minds are like sponges, soaking up all the information you can throw at them.  Let them play to develop large motor skills.  Let them draw and colour to encourage fine motor skills.  Let them squelch paint, listen to music, smell flowers, appreciate vibrant colours, learning through sensory appreciation.  Let the terrible twos become the wondrous twos. If you would like your details added to the waiting list for the busy bees room, please email us and include the following information: child's date of birth, requirements (days per week), and a contact phone number)

Pre - Montessori (ECCE Year 1) (FULL for 2022/2023)

Ages From 3 years

Room Leaders: Maria Lynch, Amy Cooney, Michelle Marron, Inta Giraitiene

 

The terrible twos have nothing on the thunderous threes! Children respond incredibly to structure and boundaries.  They need to hear 'no' occasionally as long as it is a gentle but firm 'no'.  Once the boundaries have been established and the structure is in place, their imaginations are free to run wild, explore, build, create, fail, try again and succeed. Positive reinforcement builds confidence that they will carry forward into a bright future.

Montessori (ECCE Year 2) (FULL for 2022/2023)

Ages From 3-5 years 

Room Leaders: Eleni Gkounti & Tatiana Moldovanu

 

Every child learns differently. Montessori practices place emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological and emotional development.  Our goal on the completion of our Montessori year is for your child to know the alphabet, recognize letters and numbers up to 20, be able to write their name, have a basic knowledge of geography and different cultural practices, learn good social skills and shine! If you would like your details added to the waiting list for the Montessori, please email us and include the following information: child's date of birth, and a contact phone number)
