Our Services

Food & Nutrition

At Tír na nÓg we have introduced Healthy Ireland Smart Start. This is a pre-school health promotion programme led by the HSE, to ensure children in pre-school settings are supported to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviours in early childhood. This programme consists of six units including Health Promotion, Emotional Well-being, Physical Activity, Oral Health, Health & Safety and Nutrition.

Our objective is to support children’s development of lifelong healthy eating patterns, skills, behaviours and attitudes. We have developed and implemented a healthy eating policy, using the Food and Nutrition Guidelines for Pre-school Services, which will ensure the integration of healthy foods and drinks into meals, snacks, curriculum, celebrations and play.

ECCE Montessori -The Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme

The Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme (ECCE) is a universal childcare programme with the stated objective of providing children with their first formal experience of early learning. The ECCE programme is provided for 3 hours per day, 5 days per week over 38 weeks per year. At Tír na nÓg Childcare and Montessori we run our Montessori ECCE classes for 4 ½ hours per day, 5 days per week for 43 weeks per year, from September to June. Therefore, the ECCE payment we receive for your child is a supplement of the full fee we charge.

A Word

From Vera & Niamh

” As creche owners we fundamentally believe we are only ever as good as our team and at Tír an nÓg we have wonderful teams. We have a remarkably low staff turnover and when we are recruiting, we carefully select employees for their warm interaction and natural manner with children. Respect for the child is at the very core of our philosophy, and in turn this teaches children to respect each other and to respect the teaching staff. We lead by example and have the highest regard for our team. Our work environment is relaxed, friendly and happy, while always maintaining a professional air. Staff know that they have our support and parents know that our door is always open to listen to their concerns or suggestions. As a partnership we are friends first, our individual skills compliment each other and throughout the years that we have worked together we have never lost sight of our original goal, to provide quality childcare in a loving, happy, stimulating  and safe environment. “

What Our Families are Saying

“After a bad experience with another playschool I found Tír na nÓg and Emer. From day one she has been professional, caring, honest and kind. My son skips into see her every morning and I have great peace of mind knowing that he is being well looked after. He has come on leaps and bounds and is ready to start Big School in September. We will miss Emer and all the staff in Tír na nÓg. I can’t recommend them highly enough.” Donna

“Elaine’s experience and no-nonsense approach meant I was secure leaving my very precious child in her care. Before leaving him in Tír na nÓg on my return to work I hadn’t spent much time away from him at all. Elaine is a fantastic source of advice for any childcare topic you could mention” Elizabeth

“My son Cal has been attending Tír na nÓg for nearly two years now and from the moment he stepped in the doors I knew I made the right choice. Aisling has been Cal’s AIM support key worker for almost a year now as Cal has a diagnosis of Autism. I am very confident in saying Aisling has made a huge impact on Cal’s development over this time. It is very clear to me to see the passion she has working with children. Aisling has also linked in with Cal’s early intervention team implementing their strategy’s in the school setting which has been amazing. No words could be enough for what she has done for my son over the past year and I’m excited to see what unfolds over the next year.” Aoife and Cal

“I am very happy with choosing Tír na nÓg for my daughter. All the staff is nice and always with a big smile on their faces. Aisling is being so nice, so patient and supportive with Ema’s potty training. Gave me ideas of how to encourage my daughter at home and we are on the right way. I hear Ema singing at home different songs and she already knows the Alphabet. And it is all Aislings ‘fault’! For peace of mind, as a parent, make the right choice for your child!” Ani

“Gretchen is very professional and competent on all policies and procedures. Has great attitude towards children and is able to keep them organised, safe and happy. Karol often talks that she comforts him when something happens. It’s clear both Karol and Oskar have a great bond with Gretchen, and its very satisfying for a parent to know that. She has also proven to be understanding and flexible towards us parents as we often tend to forget things. Overall, I think Gretchen is a very strong member of staff, and I am never hesitant to ask her anything and confident that she will assist me in the best possible way. Well Done Gretchen!” Dagmara

“Maggie has a fantastic manner, she is always very approachable and takes seriously concerns I have or any requests regarding the care of my son. He loves going into the creche each morning and Maggie’s name is always the first he mentions. I think he might take her over his Mammy some days!” Liz

“We have known Celine for nearly 7 years now and can honestly say she is a treasure. She is very caring and attentive teacher and the children love her. Amelia tells us she is her best friend on a regular basis! It makes leaving our children a lot easier each day knowing they are in such good hands. We are very fond of her and grateful for the care she gives our kids” Sandra and Martin.

Carrie displays nothing but love and affection for children in her care. She attunes quickly to each child’s likes and dislikes and is very intuitive when it comes to the child’s needs. She is always outgoing and enthusiastic in her approach to all activities with the children. My son Adam adores her and has from the moment he was placed in her care two and a half years ago. Carrie is what made the difference when I decided to return to work because I knew my son was happy and well looked after in her care.” Nicola

“My son Ben adores Sarah, she is so sweet and friendly, I can see why. She has given my son the best start at schooling that I could have hoped for. Thank you xx” Donna

“The joy and excitement of learning that Linda brings to the classroom is evident to us when our daughter returns home each day. Our daughter loves to tell us about all the new things she has learned or when Linda has complimented her on helping out in the classroom or doing a task well. What Linda says to the children stays with them and it benefits them greatly, their confidence continually grows as does their interest in learning. A sign of a good teacher is that they can instil a love of learning into the children, Linda does this on a daily basis. She is a great addition to the team at Tír na nÓg. Emma

We recently joined the Tír na nÓg family with our 2-year-old. As every parent, I was concerned about his start in the creche, but we were very lucky to have Marie as our teacher! Little one settled within a week! She’s made sure he’s perfectly fine in the creche, so we couldn’t be happier with such an easy transition. Marie is very experienced, professional and kind person. We are very happy to have her as our son’s teacher. Thank You!” Mila

My daughter is very happy to be with Meaghan. She is a lovely teacher, always smiling and happy. My daughter tells me Meaghan is very kind and gives her lots of praise and rewards. Meaghan always has lovely positive things to tell me about my daughter’s day in creche. I a very happy to leave my child at Tír na nÓg and with Meaghan. Thank you all.” Kamila
