At Tigín we cater for children from four months up to twelve years of age, offering a variety of services which includes day care on a full and part-time basis, Montessori classes and after-school care for Primary School aged children.

Quality and Curriculum

The age range of the children who attend Tigín is expansive and with careful planning we have put in place curricula i.e. care and education programmes that incorporate learning activities specific to the age and developmental stages of the children.

Our care and education programmes are informed by Síolta, the national quality framework for early childhood in Ireland, and Aistear, the curriculum framework in Ireland for children from birth to six years of age.


We are registered for the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) programme which is administered by the Childcare Directorate of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (OCYA).
