At Tots + Swots we believe in a fun, play based approach to learning and development in the early years. Our Early Years Practitioners Dyana, Aisling and Jovita are passionate about childcare and experts in supporting your child’s development within a playful and fun atmosphere. Every child’s journey is unique and is recorded in a Learning Journey story book that is filled with paintings, collages, drawings and photographs of your child and their new friends. We have a play -based curriculum which is the most common curriculum used in preschools and is guided by the principles of Síolta and the national curriculum framework Aistear. This curriculum ensures that your child's time with us is as enjoyable as possible while at the same time preparing them for 'big school'. We combine this with the with Montessori Method and materials. We embrace Maria Montessori`s philosophy that recognises each individual child’s potential. We ensure that children have the opportunity to explore, question, communicate and create in a fun and supportive environment which meets their individual needs
Our Montessori curriculum consists of practical life and sensorial activities, sounds and reading, numeracy, geography as well as music and movement, art and crafts, dance, and physical education.
Before and After School Care
For early morning starts we open from 7.30. The breakfast club programme provides a transition from home to the school day. Here the children can enjoy breakfast within a relaxed environment. Have time to chat and chill with their friends or have a play in PJ’s for the more energetic!
The afternoon programme is designed to help children release energy in safe and creative ways. Children are constantly under supervision and are able to make friends and play within a safe fun environment. Separate rooms are allocated for lots of fun stuff and activities including, Arts & Crafts, Games, Hair & Beauty, Music, Dance, Computers and also the space to unwind and relax with their friends or siblings and not forgetting daily access to PJ's Playcentre to ensure they get daily exercise. We’ll help get your child’s homework under way and of course provide a nutritious dinner, snack and refreshments.
Our after school provision is an all year round service, closing for one week at Christmas, Bank Holidays & Good Friday.
