A new preschool and afterschool will open at St Patrick's Primary School this September. The new service will cater for preschool children aged three to five years and offers the free ECCE childcare scheme. The service will also provide afterschool care to children of St Pat's and surrounding schools. A breakfast club will be available for boys attending St Pat's.
Helen O'Flynn and Fiona Kelly of Little Angels Oranmore have 12 years' experience in preschool and afterschool care in the Oranmore area. They are excited to be part of this new venture with such an iconic and well respected school in the heart of Galway city.
Helen and Fiona understand the importance of providing quality childcare to all families and are offering all the subsidised preschool and afterschool schemes. The sessional preschool service will have a core curriculum based on the Aisteair/Siolta model, this will be led by a highly qualified Level 7 educator. The emphasis will be on play-based learning with elements of Montessori.
The breakfast club will be open to all boys attending St Pat's from 8am, a choice of hot or cold breakfast is provided to set the boys up for a busy day at school. The afterschool will be open not only to boys of St Pat's but to all children from the surrounding schools. A warm healthy snack will be given, followed by a supervised homework hour. A varied curriculum will be offered in the afternoon including arts and crafts, sports, yoga/mindfuliness, and outings. St Pat's preschool and afterschool is open to children of all backgrounds and abilities.
