Our Curriculum

Nourrice Creche Building

There is a programme of age appropriate activities to enhance all aspects of development in each area of the Crèche & in the Montessori Centre. Beginning with our Enrichment programme in Babaland and progressing to our preschool programme in our Preschool Montessori Centre.

The staff at Nourrice develop their own unique curriculum which draws on elements of Montessori, High Scope and Aistear, but also take into consideration the abilities and interests of individual children in their care.

Children have direct input into decisions regarding activities and they move to different areas of the building throughout the day.

Music, Exercise & French classes are offered to children over 2 years of age.

From approximately 3 years children attend Nourrice Preschool Montessori Centre.

Parents receive a pack outlining the details and the timeframe of the curriculum. There are two parent liaison evenings in the child’s preschool year to give parents an opportunity to discuss their child’s individual interests and development in detail.


The children explore the outdoors daily. Our landscaped gardens offer several surfaces, grass, mulsh, gravel and tarmac which enhance the sensory experience of playing outside. The children leave a pair of boots in the crèche and outdoor activities such as gardening, painting, sports, nature walks and picnics form part of our weekly plans.

Summer Camp

Our Summer Fun Programme” runs through July & August. A theme is selected each week and various activities relating to the theme occur throughout the week. For example: Nourrice Master Chef Week, Spanish Fiesta & Bastille Day & All things Magical.
