There’s no need to search for a preschool service anymore, we have a wonderful programme. Children are encouraged to explore, learn and develop at their own pace through a variety of play and daily activities.  Our curriculum is guided by Aistear with elements of Montessori and takes a holistic approach to each child’s learning and development.

We operate just like a drop in center. This refers to a service where a child is cared for over a period of time, Monday to Friday, while the parent or guardian is availing of a service or attending an event. Should you have a concern or question regardin our service, please do not hesitate to contact us, either by droping in our play-room here at Saint Pat’s Primary school or by telephone on the numbers bellow:
