Our dedicated and creative staff provide a stimulating environment in which your child can grow successfully and happily.

Our classrooms are designed to foster independence and nurture children in their self-discovery of the world around them. We assist your child in acquiring the social skills and self confidence needed to fulfil their potential. This is accomplished by building on interests, nurturing enthusiasm and making activities available to fit individual needs.

We provide childcare which is not only committed but based on sound ethical, environmental and moral values, which enable both children and staff alike to work to the best of their ability. Our commitment is to provide a warm, happy, friendly environment where each child is encouraged to reach their full potential through praise, sensitivity and mutual respect.

ECCE Scheme

The introduction of the ECCE Scheme providing parents with a heavily subsidised preschool year is a major positive step forward for childcare in Ireland. We are registered to participate in this scheme. There are no hidden costs or charges attached to the ECCE Scheme. The government payment will cover all costs.
