Have you children in school in the Portlaoise area but could do with availing of an after-school service?
Little Treasures preschool and after-school facility opened on the Borris Road in Portlaoise in 2019 under owner Elaine Gavin and are offering an after-school school service every day from 1.30pm to 6pm for primary school children.
The cost of the service is €6 per hour.
Children get a hot nutritious lunch, can play in all the areas and do their homework before being picked up. There is no minimum commitment and children can be there any combination of days during the week.
Elaine Gavin has her Level 8 degree – the highest qualification in the childcare industry – having studied for her VTEC Level 5 in Portlaoise College, her BSC in Education and Training in DCU and a Higher Diploma in Early Childcare Education and Care.
She also studied Leadership in Access and Inclusion in Mary Immaculate in Limerick.
Little Treasures have both morning and afternoon ECCE places available and also offer part-time hours where the children can stay on to have fun for two extra hours for a small cost of €6 per hour.
Little Treasures had their first graduation since opening in 2019 and would like to wish all the children the very best of luck in “big school”.
“The curriculum we follow is play-based on the emergent interests of all children,” explains Elaine.
“Below you can see some pictures of our curriculum we completed last year.
