'Free the child's potential and you will transform him into the world'
Maria Montessori

Welcome to Tir na Nog where we aim to provide the highest standard of Early Childhood Care and Education.

Tir na Nog integrates various early education methods including those based on the philosophies of Highscope and Montessori, with the most up to date Pre-school practices. The various themes that we incorporate into our play- based curriculum introduce ideas and concepts that invite children to explore the world around them.

We recognize that children learn best in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. At Tir na nOg your child will experience a warm and stimulating environment in order to facilitate a gentle transition into a world of new friends and activities. Each child is encouraged to progress at their own pace. Our highly qualified staff is committed to ensuring that each child realizes his or her full potential and develops a positive attitude towards him/herself and others.

Our classroom is divided into different areas of interest: Art Area, Construction Area, Home Corner, Sand and Water Area, Pre-reading and Writing Area and a Quiet Room for rest and relaxation. Each area is designed to support particular aspects of development - Social, Emotional, Intellectual, Language, Cultural and Physical.

Our daily routine provides for a balance between adult led activities and opportunities for children to choose the activities they enjoy best.
