Pre-School & Playgroup

          Pre-School and Playgroup

 

This group caters for up to 30 pre-school children in the area.  Established in 1982,  it is a non-profit pre-school, partially funded by the HSE / Túsla The Child and Family Agency and run by Directors and a  committee of parents. Maintaining a low pupil teacher ratio, in modern class rooms, using up-to-date equipment, children learn through play, with emphasis on interaction and social skills, using the HighScope approach.  The preschool makes the most of being situated in the park with frequent nature walks and full use of the Community Centre Hall for physical games and activities and private natural outdoor space and programme. There are two classrooms, one for children 2 years and 9 months to 4 years (Playgroup);  a second is a pre-school class for children from 4-5 years.  Enrollments are taken each year in spring / summer for the following September.  For more details please phone 0861217161.
