We employ the world famous Montessori method for children attending our Pre-School. The opening hours are 9 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. Monday to Friday during term time only.

ECCE Scheme
We operate the Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme (ECCE), which is designed to give children access to a free Pre-School Year of appropriate programme based activities, in the year before they start primary school.

If your child is eligible for the scheme then you are entitled to a pre-school session of 3 hours per day, 5 days per week, 38 weeks per year, for which you will not be charged. This is subject to availability.

Children attending after school care will be collected from school at either 1.30 p.m. 2.20 p.m. or 2.30 p.m. depending on which class they are in. During school holidays and any other days when the school is closed the hours are 8.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

During School Term we provide a breakfast club and school drop off service. The breakfast club runs from 8 am and the children are walked to school for arrival at the school for 8.50 am.

Children who are unwell or have a communicable infection are not allowed attend the facility. If a child falls ill during the day, they will be isolated and contact will be made with the parent/guardian and requested to collect the child. If we feel the situation warrants medical attention we will seek medical assistance. Medicines can only be administered with the written permission of the parent/guardian.

After pick up from school the children are walked back to Baggot Tots. A hot meal is provided and a range of activities is available – Sports, arts and crafts, outdoor games, board games, music, and free play. When possible we facilitate drop off and collection from local clubs and activities, i.e. Drama and Dance Clubs.

Homework is supervised and help is given when needed but we request that parents/guardians check and sign the homework at home.

For children attending the after school service a hot snack is provided on their return from school, i.e. Pasta Bolognaise, Chicken Curry, Chicken Nuggets and Chips

We can cater for allergies once informed about them.
