Tús on Bhóthair Preschool is a sessional services operating from September to June each year. Tús on Bhóthair cater for 22 children (3-5yrs) per day, per session. There are two sessions each day, one in the morning and another in the afternoon.

The service follows a play-based curriculum influenced by Aistear and guided by Síolta which supports the holistic development of the child. Our routine and structure of the day in preschool derives from emerging interest from the children and also links in with our monthly plan. Each child has a key worker who takes observations of the child and communicates with their parents.

There are extra supports available such as the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM). This provides extra assistance in the room or specialised equipment when needed. This ensures every child attending the service is receiving the care and education they require. Children who have attended Tiny Learners and/or Lilttle Learners are automatically offered a place in one of our 4 preschool ECCE services: Blossom Grove, Tús An Bhóthair, Cur Le Chéile, or Glentrasna Preschool.
