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.

My child comes on Mondays. How do you deal with bank holidays?

All these children are invited to our Friday events and in fact get more extra days than bank holidays.

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.
