School Life – Pre-School

Education Policy

The Teresian Pre-School provides a unique educational experience for boys and girls from two years of age. A high standard of care and education takes place in a safe, happy and child-centered setting where the children experience the joy of learning and growing. Our students are encouraged to learn through interactions in a warm stimulating environment, guided by experienced and well-trained teachers convinced that children learn when they are loved, respected and allowed to choose.

Our education encompasses the spiritual, social, emotional, physical, intellectual and linguistic development of every child in our care.

We follow the Montessori method which blends very well with Síolta and Aistear, the Irish programmes for children between birth and six years. The Aistear (Journey) programme allows children to develop as competent and confident learners using four themes which are developed through cross-curricular exploration:

  • Well-being
  • Identity and Belonging
  • Communicating
  • Exploring and Thinking


Pre-School students are given many opportunities to express themselves, be creative and experiment. 

Pre-School students enjoy an array of activities intended to promote oral language development, gross and fine motor skill development and confidence. 


The Pre-School is open from 8am – 6pm.

Teaching instruction is from 9am – 3pm.

Pre-School is closed for a week at Christmas, a week at Easter and the month of August.
