About Spraoi

  • At Spraoi, the core emphasis is on cultivating a learning environment through the power of play. The centre proudly embraces the Aistear curriculum while seamlessly incorporating elements inspired by Steiner and Montessori educational philosophies.
  • The centre has undergone a thoughtful refurbishment, meticulously designed to cater to the needs of children aged between 6 months and 12 years, ensuring a dynamic and nurturing setting for their growth and development.
  • Spraoi believes in the importance of involving parents as primary educators in their child's journey, which is why they have a user-friendly software app. This app allows parents to stay informed in real time about their child's daily experiences at Spraoi, promoting a strong partnership between parents and the care team.
  • When it comes to nutrition, Spraoi's commitment to providing wholesome meals is unwavering. Their skilled culinary team prepares a balanced and diverse menu in-house, tailored to meet the unique nutritional requirements of each child.
  • For younger children, the focus is on sensory play. At Spraoi, they are continuously working to enrich the sensory experience, both within their facility and in the beautiful crèche garden. Their goal is to foster a nurturing and engaging atmosphere where children can thrive and explore their world through all their senses.
  • Parents play an integral role in their child’s development and are encouraged to be partners in their child’s educational and social progress.
