Welcome to Whitefriars

CRÈCHE AND MONTESSORI

Here in Whitefriars Crèche and Montessori we provide a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment where children can learn and grow at their own pace and each child’s specialised needs, strengths and weaknesses are met in a holistic manner to help them meet their full potential. We have a Montessori and Aistear play based curriculum which provides children with positive learning experiences emerging from their personal interests. Children are seen as self-directed learners and we support and encourage them to take their interests further by facilitating their play in a routine based and structured environment.
Our team of practitioners are experienced and knowledgeable about children’s needs and how these can be met. Early years educators support the children’s learning by encouraging self-care, independence, curiosity, social skills, respect for others and emotional literacy in each of the age appropriate environments. The practitioners are professional, model positive interactions and strive to deliver the highest standard of care and education possible.
As a centre we have engaged the services of the Better Start programme – which promotes high-quality care through mentorship, we engage in continuous professional development and liaise with Dublin City Childcare Committee and Early Childhood Ireland to keep abreast of changing regulation and maintain our high standards in line with Childcare Regulations.

Nutrition

From day one it is important that your child gets the right balance of healthy and nutritious food. This will help your child to start eating the right food early and develop a pattern for life.

Parents of children with special dietary requirements will be asked to provide as much information they can regarding their child’s food.

Parents are also asked not to bring into the créche snacks such as sweets/crisps as this will break their routine of eating at meal times.

Arrangements can be made for special occasions i.e. Birthdays etc. and should be discussed with the Manager of the créche.
