Newly opened in September 2007, Carracastle Pre-School Service is a community run playgroup managed by a Committee made up, in majority, of the parents of the children in attendance. We are funded through fees, grants and parents' fundraising activities throughout the year.

Mission Statement:
Our aim is to provide quality, affordable childcare that is open to all children in the community and to support the learning and development of each child through play.

To provide a broad and stimulating curriculum in a secure learning environment which helps the children to be:

  • Respectful of themselves and others

  • Happy and confident

  • Independent and inter-dependent

  • Compassionate and caring

  • Tolerant and sharing

  • Curious and creative

  • Appreciative and appreciated

To achieve this we need partnership with parents

Opening hours
Monday to Friday 9:00 - 12:15.

The Pre-School caters for a maximum of 15 children per session as prescribed by the HSE and maintains a ratio of no more than 10 children per adult.

Community Childcare Subvention scheme rates apply.

Yearly Programme
The Pre-school has in place a programme for the year that incorporates themes relevant to each month and encourages the development of the children. Details of the themes for each month will be on display in the entrance.
