St Mary’s Early Years’ Service

We provide early years care and education to children aged 15 months to 5 years. Children are enabled to develop their physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social skills, through age-appropriate play and activities.

How we work:

  • We provide a fun, caring, learning environment to ensure each child can realise their full potential,
  • We respect the dignity of each child in our care and value their diversity,
  • We work collaboratively with parents and families to ensure best outcomes for children attending our service.

We are the lead agency for the Parent-Child Home Programme (PCHP), under the Grangegorman Area-Based Childhood (ABC) Programme 2015- 2017.  The PCHP provides a ‘learning through play’ experience for pre-school children aged eighteen months to two-and-a-half years, and their parents. The Programme involves the delivery of one-to-one supports in the home, by a trained Home Visitor, to improve literacy outcomes for children and enhance the natural bond between the parent and child.
