Little Rays caters for children aged 3 to 5 years
Parents provide the children with a healthy lunch in line with our Healthy eating policy.
The preschool provides a healthy snack for the children this usually consists of fresh fruit/cheese/ brown bread.
Little Rays is committed to developing a curriculum that creates a child centred, play based environment, which empowers young children to actively pursue their own learning.
Staffs provide appropriate, timely, balanced intervention, as well as support, continuity and progression to encourage positive attitudes towards learning while adhering to the underpinning principles of the Síolta & Aistear frameworks.
Little Rays offers ECCE & CCS Schemes. Fees for any child who does not meet the criteria for either of the above schemes is €10 per day
The Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Scheme is a Government funded initiative that provides 2 FREE years of pre-school to every child in Ireland between the ages of 3 – 5 years. In general, children are eligible for the ECCE scheme if they are aged over 3 years 2 months and up to 5 years 8 months, on the 1st of September of the year that they will be starting.
The normal pattern for the free pre-school year is 3 hours per day, 5 days a week over 38 weeks. Applying is easy you will simply need to provide your child’s PPS number. However, spaces are limited so booking in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment.
