Dublin West Kozy Kids

Our Service

Dublin West Kozy Kids is a community based childcare service which is adjacent to St. Ronan’s National School in Deansrath Clondalkin.

We have two large rooms which accommodate the children attending our pre-school and after school service. The service is ideally located for families who require afterschool care for their children who attend St. Ronan's N.S and also an excellent choice for transition into St Ronan's primary school from our preschool.

Our Curriculum

Our educators offer a safe, caring and stimulating environment for children to grow and learn with confidence in their abilities. We offer a play based curriculum influenced by Aistear - the National Early Childhood Curriculum Framework.

We believe in outdoor play for children's well being and physical health. Outdoor play creates opportunities for children to communicate and interact with their peers in a more relaxed environment.  We offer real life experiences as part of our educational program including nature walks, visits to the local primary school to support transitions and trips out and about in the local community. This supports the children's identity and belonging, sense of culture and encourages respect for nature and pride in their community.
