Kids Kottage is based on the Main Street in Tyrrellspass and we provide pre-school, day-care and after-school care services for children aged from 9 months up to 6 years. Opened in 2010, we have a secure, interactive facility where you children can learn and develop in a fun and exciting way. Our fully trained staff have a vast amount of experience and have all received a level 6 FETAC certificate or above. All members of staff are also trained in first aid and manual handling. Our facilities include two dedicated pre-school rooms and two day-care rooms where children receive focused attention to help them learn, play and develop as well as a walled, secure back garden where children can learn and play outside.
Kids Kottage provide meals for children that are freshly cooked in our kitchen. We are able to accommodate special dietary requirements but we ask that you let us know in advance.
Kids Kottage have developed our curriculum around the principles of the Aistear Síolta programme for learning and development. We encourage learning and development in an active way whilst incorporating the children’s environment. Our curriculum incorporates different areas of learning including arts and crafts, music, culture and much more.
Kids Kottage have a pre-school service available for children from the ages of 3 till 5 and for toddler groups aged 2 to 3. Early childhood is an ideal time for learning and development which we encourage through an active, stimulating environment. We understand that each child is unique and work to encourage their individual strengths and interests. Children receive regular one-on-one contact in order to build strong relationships between themselves and our team members. Our pre-school service runs 38 weeks of the year in conjunction with local primary schools.
Kids Kottage provide a full day-care service which runs from 7am till 6pm. This scheme is available for full-time and part-time enrolment with meals provided. Children are cared for by members of our fully trained staff who encourage learning and development for each individual child. We incorporate a key workers child care scheme to encourage consistency of care and use Childpath software to note children’s improvements and convey these to parents.
