Children can experience a truly imaginative, fun-filled and often magical journey in play and learning at Smiley Sunflowers Pre-school. We play, explore, create and discover and this is above all a place where children can simply just enjoy being children.
We have a wonderful team of caring, experienced and highly qualified early years educators who love what they do and this shows in the high level of education and care provided in our setting.
Our well-balanced curriculum is linked with Aistear and gently prepares children to start primary school.
Our outdoor education programme makes use of the beautiful outdoor facilities – sensory garden, vegetable patch, picnic benches, grassy area with trees and the all-weather football pitch. This wonderful array of outdoor space affords many wonderful new experiences and opportunities for play and learning such as forest school activities.
We are notified with and have been inspected by the HSE. We were marked compliant in all areas of the report which can be viewed at:www.tusla.ie/services/preschool-services/creche-inspection-reports.
Smiley Sunflowers participates in the ECCE Scheme (free-pre-school year) and has passed the Pobal inspection in relation to this. Pobal regularly makes unannounced visits on behalf of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs to check that they are compliant with ECCE regulations.
