Welcome to Burren Junction Pre School

Our aim is to provide a service to you and your child, which will be an invaluable life experience.

 

We would like to welcome you and your child to Burren Junction Pre School. This booklet has been designed to introduce you to our Pre School. Please read through this information when enrolling your child and keep it handy for future reference. We hope that you enjoy your time with us.

We aim to provide your child with an individual and group program that further develops growth in preparation for dealing with everyday life, school and later challenges.


We would like you as parents and carers to feel that your child is safe, valued and receiving everything that you would expect from a quality Early Childhood Service.


We are a non-profit organisation run by a voluntary committee of interested members to operate the Pre School. Burren Junction Pre School is open three days a week and provides fifteen places per day for children aged 3 to 5 years.
