Pre-School FAQ

Answers to your common Pre-School & Montessori questions

What age do you cater for?

We take children from 2 years and 8 months until they are ready for school. We do not have changing facilities therefore we ask that children are  toilet trained before they start. 

Must my child be toilet trained?

Yes all children must be toilet trained before commencing Montessori and Pre-School.

What are your opening hours?

Little Learners are open from 7.45am to 6.30pm. Our Pre-School runs from 9.15 am to 1pm. Additional hours available on request.

Do you operate the ECCE scheme?

Yes we have ECCE places. The government funds ECCE places for 3 hours a day [ 9.15 to 12.15 ] We are a 5 day service and our morning hours are 9.15am to 1pm inclusive of ECCE (€160 per month). We also offer a full day service. 

Extra hours are available for our morning service if needed eg: early drop

Does the same program run in both premises?

Yes we run the same programme in both locations.

What additional activities are included if my child stays till 1pm?

Little Learners run dance, yoga, music, Ted, Spanish and Irish storytelling on a weekly basis.

We don’t speak Irish. How will my child manage?

We use Irish during the day and all children attend our Naíonra for a session daily. There is no pressure and the children learn easily.

What does my child need to bring?

A small healthy snack and a change of clothes.

Can I add extra days and times?

We will always try to amend times and days if we have spaces but we cannot guarantee places.

How are fees calculated?

Fees are calculated over the 38 school year and divided by 10 months so the monthly charge remains the same regardless of five week months and holidays. There is also an option to calculate fees over 12 months to include camps.

How do I apply?

Places fill quickly so have a look at our On-Line Application or contact page and as always phone Nessa: 085 1449610.
