Welcome to Little Learners Pre-School and After-School Drumcondra

Little Learners has been operating in Drumcondra Dublin 9 since 2011. We are a privately owned pre-school and after-school.

Little Learners


We offer ECCE preschool places and full and part time care. The preschool operates for 3 hours and 45 mins for ECCE children but additional care is available from 7.45 am to 6pm. We accept children from ages 2 years and 8 months (ecce eligibility)

Little Learners was awarded the 2015 Early Childhood Ireland Innovation Award for Innovation in Relationships and Partnerships.

We use a play based and Montessori curriculum  which teaches the child to learn to do it for themselves.

Stay & Play

After School Club

We offer a unique service which puts the children’s happiness and comfort at the heart of all our activities. We recognise that after schoolers have particular needs and have developed our service after extensive consultation with both parents and children.

Your child will have access to a genuinely varied and exciting range of activities. These change depending on the interests and skills of the leaders. We have access to a large fully equipped dance studio, garden and childrens village.

Our award winning After-School programme includes dance, sports shows, arts and crafts, chess, lego and board games. We are innovative, friendly and most of all FUN.

To facilitate parents we can arrange for siblings to be in the same premises. The club runs weekly during school terms and daily during holiday periods.

Babysitting Service

Last Friday of every month from 6-10pm @ ABCD

Did you know that we host a babysitting evening on the last Friday of every month from 6-10pm in the ABCD building. This is to provide parents with the opportunity to go to the cinema, avail of an early bird meal etc. The cost is 20e for a child or 25e per family.

Children are invited to come in their pyjamas and enjoy a movie and some fun. If this would be something that would interest you, let us know. It is vital that you book in advance. It is even more vital that children are collected by 10pm as the success of the scheme is that parents get a night out but staff get home at a reasonable hour.

All funds raised will be used to purchase the new equipment for the garden in ABCD.
