Why Kildare

The development of the whole child while learning through play is paramount. One of our objectives throughout the school is for children to learn respect: respect for themselves, their peers, the environment and community. This all begins in our happy, fun filled pre-primary.


You are welcome to make an appointment and visit the school so that you may experience Kildare as a “happy place to be” for yourself.
