• Adam from the Pre Montessori Room who turned 3 yrs old on the 17th

• Leia in the Toddlers 2 yrs old this month.

• Michael who turn 4yrs Sep 13th

New arrivals in the Families.

We would like to congratulate Ellie who has just become a big sister this month with baby Abby.


We would like to remind all parents that children should not bring in their own toys to crèche. As you can understand we do not want children’s toys to go home damaged in any way and bringing them in can cause great confusion to other children who think they belong to the crèche. This can cause unwanted bickering and unease amongst the children.

Also we would like to remind parents that if you have not brought in a spare set of clothes for your child could you do so as soon as possible. It is very important that we have them in case of emergency. The following clothes should be provided a t-shirt, sweater, underpants, trousers, socks and a vest. After school children are encouraged to bring in a change of clothes so they can change out of their uniforms. Please remember to label all of your child’s belongings!


We will be hosting parent’s teachers meeting on the 7th October 2010 from 6.30 PM until 8. Pm .for parents who can’ make it you can always talk to staff about your child development

Also could all parents of the children in the Montessori room please ensure that they have completed all relevant forms in their welcome pack? Please ensure that these are returned to a member of staff as soon as possible.


Cheerios Childline Breakfast together week will be on this year from 4th – 10th October. We are going to host our breakfast on Wednesday the 6th October at 9.30a.m as on this day we have all the children.

Last year, hundreds of people held breakfasts with their friends, families and colleagues raising over €130,000 for Childline – enabling them to increase their call answering rate from 47% to 60% allowing them to speak to more children and young children who desperately need their help.

We ask that all parents donate €2 per child for this worthy cause if you can.
