Early Learning Schools – with a difference!

Grassroots Childcare Ltd., is in operation since 2001. Growing in excellence in the childcare sector with each term and preschool year. Our priority at Grassroots Childcare Ltd. has always been the positive development and growth of every child that uses our early years facilities.

Our focus for the last number of years has been preschool early years education and care. We cater for children at our two early learning schools, from ages 2 and a half to school going age, (4 or 5yrs)

Grassroots childcare ltd. operates two preschools. Grassroots Preschool is located in Kilkenny City centre. Approximately a 5 minute walk from the centre of town.

The Garden Outdoor Preschool is at Ruthstown, Ballyfoyle, Co. Kilkenny. Both preschools operate within the frameworks of Aistear and Siolta, using the HighScope early years curriculum approach to implement these national frameworks for early childhood education.
