We would like to welcome Helena and Saoirse who have both joined us in the Wobbler Room. We hope you settle in well with your new friends.

Big congratulations to Jonathan and Aimee who have a new baby sister Sarah.

Infection Control
We would appreciate your help in trying to prevent any virus entering the crèche. I would therefore just like to stress the importance of using the hand sanitizer gel before entering any of the children’s rooms. We are advising all parents, staff and visitors to use the gel. We are also encouraging any school going children to use the gel when returning from school and entering the building.

Also for any parents entering the baby, wobbler and toddler rooms we would like to remind you to use the shoe covers provided as this will also help in the prevention and spread of any viruses.

Room Changes
Over the next few weeks some children will be moving into their big rooms. The children will begin to settle into their new rooms shortly. We will speak to each parent before their child moves so the room change runs smoothly.

Gymboree/Speech and Drama
The children will be happy to find out that Gymboree will return on Wednesday the 12th of January. Each session runs for 8 weeks and costs €40. If you wish you can pay €5 each.
Speech and Drama in the Montessori room is coming to an end shortly. We are hoping to run another session as the children really enjoyed it. It is €60 for 10 weeks. The new term will run from Thursday 27th January.
