At Klever Kidz, our aim is to provide care & education for children from 2 years – 5 years 6 months, ensuring security in a bright and friendly environment that will encourage children to learn through play, express themselves and learn life skills.
All practitioners within Klever Kidz Pre-school are fully garda vetted, qualified, and trained in other areas such as Child Protection, First Aid etc. They are responsible for the care of up 22 children per session and working together as a team.
All children are welcome to attend Klever Kidz Pre-school regardless of race, gender, religion, or ability (if the practitioners are confident that they and the facilities within the pre-school are sufficient to assist with the individual’s needs). We offer different government funding schemes such as ECCE, NCS, AIM and we also accept private paying customers.
Monday – Friday
Session 1: The Daisies 9.00 – 12.00

We operate for 38 weeks of the school calendar year from September to June, closing for the summer months of July & August.
We offer 3 hours, per child, per day, with 22 places per session.
We are ***SESSIONAL ONLY*** therefore, we do not offer any more than 3 hours per session, per child.
Places are based on a first come, first serve basis. Once full, children are placed on our waiting list.
At Klever Kidz we follow the Aistear Curriculum. Aistear allows children to “Learn through Play”, meaning the children learn life skills daily by playing alongside their peers, sharing, communicating, socialising, interacting etc. By carrying out these simple tasks, they will learn how to become part of society. The children carry out a large amount of “messy play”, as the old saying goes……“a dirty child is a happy child”.
We encourage the children to explore with different textures and items, not washing their hands during play and to enjoy messy play. We encourage outdoor play as much as possible and in all weathers when it is safe to do so.
All children who enter Klever Kidz are required to wear a uniform. This consists of a navy top and bottoms with white or sky-blue polo shirt (see gallery for pictures). Comfortable runners/shoes to be worn and wellies to be worn on wet days for outdoor play. These items can be purchased in any local clothing department store.
Due to the recent changes due to COVID-19, parents are NOT permitted to enter the service at any time. Please request a copy of our COVID Policy for full details. All safety measures have been taken with regard Government Guidelines and we continue to follow and update these when needed.
The Early Childhood Care and Education Programme programme is a universal two-year pre-school programme available to children in the eligible age range.
The National Childcare Scheme (NCS) is a new Government funded scheme that provides financial support to help parents to meet the costs of childcare.
Klever Kidz can accommodate children from 2 years of age which parents are required to pay a fee of €80.00 per week for their child’s attendance with us.
