Safari Childcare Kilmainham Preschool & Afterschool

At Kilmainham we provide Full-time care for Preschool Children

Part-time sessional ECCE Preschool, Afterschool care with a collection service for local schools.



Preschool Room 3 - 5 years

In Pre-school, children are introduced to a classroom environment. They become used to sitting at a table and concentrating for longer periods of time. The Montessori method and other teaching methods are introduced by our trained staff. Children will learn the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics. Our curriculum also concentrates on languages, arts and crafts, the world we live in, music, free play, cookery and personal and social development. Parents are informed on a regular basis as to how their child is progressing. In the Pre-school room children will learn the basics to more than equip them for the school environment.

Parent Reviews / Feedback

I have had my three daughters in Safari and i was able to go to work leaving them in good hands and i did not have to worry. The staff in Safari Kilmainham are caring and very well trained, you could see how my girls love being there and still keep asking about it. They are very clean and the activities they do are very developmental, they have a lot of resources and they make a great team, always a pleasure dropping and picking up the girls. They informed you of everything and the most important for me the love they offer to the children is just unique. Highly recommend it.

We can't believe James' time with Safari is coming to an end! We are excited for him about the start of his school years but also a bit sad that his days at Montessori are over. We are so grateful to you and all your team for making these such wonderful years for James. You have always been so kind and he has learned so much from you. It has been an invaluable experience.
We feel we hit the childcare "jackpot", so to speak, with Safari. It was amazing to be able to go to work and have 100% confidence in how well our children were being looked after. It is simply impossible to put into words how grateful we are. Thank you so much again.

To everyone in Safari, A massive THANK YOU for creating a loving warm environment for my Boo Boo Seán for the past 2.5 years. We are heartbroken leaving you and we really just wish Safari would move to Glasthule!! Thank you for being so professional always and most of all for being so kind to my little boy.
You are an incrediable group of people - so professional but loving - you can feel the possitive energy as soon as you walk in - Hugely appreciated.
We wish you all the very best in the future.
