Portlaoise Creche & Montessori

Portlaoise Crèche and Montessori opened in 1990 by the current owner Avril Byrne. It has always operated on the Stradbally Rd, which is a very centrally located to the town of Portlaoise.

In 2002 the business moved to a new purpose designed premises, which is solely dedicated to childcare activity. The crèche is now in a 2500 sq ft building situated on a site area of approx .5 acres.

The crèche consists of the following:

  • Dedicated Playroom for toddlers.
  • Montessori Room for Morning Sessions.
  • Study Room for After School Children.
  • Four Individual Bedrooms for babies.
  • Dedicated Kitchen for Food Preparation.
  • Two specially designed Playgrounds.
  • After school playground for older children.

There are four generous size playrooms with lots of open space and activity for all age groups. We have a montessori Room for the morning session and this is also used as a study room for the after school children.

We feel that it is vitally important to create an atmosphere for children which mimic the home environment. We have created four individual bedrooms decorated in different themes to add to the security and comfort of the children. Each room is monitored by close circuit television and is also visited twice per hour by the supervisor.

Menu and Food Preparation:
All food is purchased fresh and prepared in our dedicated kitchen. A HACCP plan is in place and full menu is available on request. Special diet requirements can be catered for also.

Outdoor activity is very important for children to feel content and secure on a daily basis. For comfort and safety we have two separate playgrounds, which allow us to separate children in different age groups to accommodate their different play needs. The rubber surface on the playground is specifically designed for children playgrounds and the both are securely fenced with full time supervision when the children are outside.

We have a policy of carefully selecting our staff. All our staff are trained and a work rota is in place.

There is off street parking for up to 7 vehicles with large areas for drop off and collection of the children.

We offer the following range of services:

  • Full day care for Children.
  • Montessori session in the morning.
  • After school service.
  • ECCE, CETS, TEC Schemes.

A full price list is available on request and significant family discounts are in operation.

We are always very conscious of childcare cost and notwithstanding the fact that we have invested significantly in a purpose-designed facility we feel we offer the keenest rates in Portlaoise.
