Playschool and Montessori


Children in the playschool are from 2 and half to 3 and a half years of age and then will move on to Montessori. 

  • This is a very important learning stage for children, they have access to a wide range of experiences and will have their learning supported and extended by competent and highly qualified teachers.

Our teachers aim to provide a changing and challenging environment. 

  • In Montessori, children are encouraged in decision-making and work freely from a wide range of speciality materials.


Cuddles ‘N Care is a private Crèche and Montessori. It is a family run business. We pride ourselves on all of our staff being with us over 3 years. We have a large outdoor play area; we believe outdoor play is very important for our children’s development.

What is the free Pre-School Year in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)?

The ECCE is a new scheme designed to give children access to a free Pre-School Year of appropriate programme-based activities in the year before they start primary school.

Participation in a pre-school programme provides children with their first formal experience of early learning, the starting-point of their educational and social development outside the home.


Children who avail of pre-school are more likely to be ready for school and a formal learning and social environment.
