The Early Childhood Care & Education(ECCE) scheme provides free pre-school education to every child in Ireland aged from 3 years until they start in primary school. Children can enroll at 3 points during the year – September, January & April, depending on their date of birth. Our sessional classes are completely free for ECCE eligible children and there are no extra charges as we do not charge  additional fees.

For children attending full & part-time daycare, the ECCE subsidy will be deducted from the full/part-time fee.

Our sessional  ECCE Montessori classes, led by our team of qualified & experienced teachers, provide a wonderful learning opportunity for your pre-school aged child.  Our Montessori curriculum incorporates both play & Montessori education, offering your child more opportunities to reach their full potential.  For more information about out Montessori education programme please visit our Montessori and Curriculum section.
