*FREE pre-school year :  Early Childhood Care & Education scheme

This scheme, funded by the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs, entitles all children in the year before they attend primary school to a year of free play-school (3 hour per day, Sep - June). Your child must have turned 3 by June 30th of the relevant year to be eligible for the scheme. For children who attend on a full time basis the scheme equates to a discount off your monthly full time fees. As of Sep 2012 the weekly discount is 62.50e. Please contact us to arrange a viewing or booking.

We offer add on care options of extra half hour/extra hour and hot lunch. This can be booked when your child starts with us and is subject to availability.

Please note this scheme is very highly subscribed and waiting lists may apply. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
