Thank you for your interest in our city centre facility. The decision of where and with whom to leave your child in care is one of utmost importance and I hope that this information will assist you in making that decision.
At Aladdin’s Corner we have 25 years experience in the childcare industry with staff having qualifications in Montessori Education, Nursery Nursing and childcare. We are registered and monitored by the Eastern Health Board. We are insured with Alan B Kidd. Ltd who look after most childcare facilities in Dublin.
Children need an environment in which they feel warmth and love as much as they need intellectual and physical stimulation and our facility prides itself on being a home from home for all our children. While we incorporate Montessori philosophies throughout our programs we are also practical and aware of the needs of the child of today and indeed the needs of his/her parents!
We cater for children from 18 months old to school going children in their first year at primary level (normally aged up to 5 years). Our opening times are Monday to Friday 7:45am to 6pm.
We are amongst the very few Crèche and Montessori schools that offer full and part time care which is flexible in offering half days (mornings or afternoons) or just a few days a week (we even do week on week off)!
Children are provided with warm nourishing meals cooked on site daily (menu approved by the HSC & HACCP approved). Any special dietary requirements can be catered for.
We have both a morning and afternoon Montessori program and have sessional activities such as Spanish, French and Gymboree.
As with any facility we do require a deposit (consisting of one weeks fees) and we require two weeks paid notice in the event that you are leaving us. Also ALL absenteeism’s MUST be paid for. Two weeks holidays may be taken annually at half the normal fee.
To be honest I do hope this information is helpful but I do recommend that you call in anytime (no appointment necessary). It is important that you feel happy with the place and the people that you are going to leave your child with, so drop in and we can answer any other questions you have!
