‘Free’ Pre-School Year

Posted in Childcare Services

The preschool runs from 9.00 am to 12 pm, Monday to Friday. We cater for children aged two and a half years to five years old. If you child is aged between three years- two months and four years-seven months, you will avail of The Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme (ECCE) programme, a three hour session, five days a week, free of charge. Great chance for learning and development of your child through the Aistear curriculum. This method is age appropriate and based on children’s needs and interests ensuring the overall development of your child. We hope to maximise the number of children who can avail of a place and ensure the best possible early education for children in the Castlemaine area and beyond. Places are also available for your children even if they are not in the ECCE year.
