Welcome to Teach Leanbh




ECCE Free Pre School Scheme


What is the free Pre-School Year in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)?

The ECCE Free Pre School Scheme gives children access to a free Pre-School Year prior to starting primary school. Our aim at Teach Leanbh is to provide children with the basic foundations of early learning that will not only aid them on their journey through school but will provide them opportunities to develop their social skills and intellectual and physical development. At Teach Leanbh children will be involved in programme based activities based on Montessori teachings and the Aistear and Siolta National Frameworks for Early Learning. Early education is so important for young children, particularly in a pre school setting where children are prepared for the formal setting in primary education.
