Our Services

We have 5 morning classes. All of our classes are influenced by Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and Síolta: The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education. Each classroom has short, medium and long term plans for the school year for parents to view. These plans are flexible and take in to account each child’s current interests and stages of development. Parental involvement is encouraged and parents receive feedback on their child’s learning and development throughout the year.
