Scoil Bhríde Pre-School
Scoil Bhríde Pre-school is extremely lucky to be located on the grounds of Scoil Bhríde National School. Our relatively new facility opened in September 2011. We have a staff of 3 and cater for up to 30 children. We currently run only a morning session from 8.50 am- 11.50am in accordance with the school calendar.
The pre-school offers the wonderful opportunity for children and their families to enter the education system at foundation (fun) level. It is our aim to provide a bright friendly secure environment for children to learn and grow. Children are encouraged to make choices about activities and materials as part of our daily routine. They are given opportunities to plan, carry out and reflect on their choices and experiences as well as structured adult lead activities that will challenge them and extend their learning. The pre-school environment offers children opportunity to develop friendships and learn to express themselves freely and spontaneously. Through our play based, child centred approach it is our aim to give children confidence in their own abilities, independence, an enthusiasm for learning/exploring and a sense of belonging. Our curriculum provides for the “whole” child, catering for their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Encompassing quality practice and care we strive to give children and their families the best start in their educational journey.
