pre-school room

Our preschool is set out in distinct learning areas which gives the child freedom of choice and helps them to become independent in directing their own learning. Children can choose from the following: library area, construction area, dramatic play, table top activities, Art & creative expression, sensory play including sand & water & playdough, Montessori area, music & movement as well as outdoor play. We offer sessional preschool including the Free Preschool Year as well as full or part-time day care for our preschoolers. As part of our curriculum we help children to learn that they are part of the local community and so we bring in visitors from time to time such as theĀ Fire Brigade, the Irish Red Cross, the local Garda, our local lollipop lady etc. This helps bring learning to life for the children. This year we offered yoga lessons to our preschool class with local yoga expert Susan Fitzgerald. The children loved learning all the poses! Our local mobile library visits us every fortnight.
