Welcome to Kidz@Play.
Kids@Play acknowledge the assistance provided by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and Pobal, in relation to a School Age Childcare Grant.
As a member of Early Childhood Ireland, at our playschool we create a welcoming environment for play. The school caters for 22 children per session with adult child ratio 1:11 under preschool regulations. With a high staff ratio of 3:22 our playschool offers highly experienced and qualified staff working with your child. Our Maynooth service in Newtown Hall can accommodate two simultaneous classes with 22 children per session with morning and afternoon classes. Our Kilcock service can accommodate 22 pre-school children in a morning and afternoon class.
Both services offer school age childcare .
The central approach in our playschool focuses on children who viewed as capable, confident and active in their learning and development.
Skilled practitioners ensure the environment supports play as a vehicle for learning and development.
Children’s interests are skilfully observed, documented with plans for progression and extension of learning in line with Aistear the National Curriculum framework for early childhood care and education in Ireland and Síolta the National Quality Framework.
