At Eden Childcare Kilkenny our wish for each child is that they are happy, confident and sociable. To attain this, we encourage all children to reach developmental milestones and gain basic life skills by working under the framework of Aistear and Siolta. Siolta is the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Services and encompasses 16 Quality Standards that all Childcare service should be working towards.
Our focus for the children is on continuity through each stage at Eden Childcare Kilkenny. Designated areas within each room allow children to move through our Centre with ease and familiarity.

Naíonra at Eden Childcare Loch Buí, opened in September 2014 and proved to be an amazing success. An Naíonra is a playgroup run through Irish for children aged 3-5 years, who attend daily for 3 or more hours in a pleasant, cheerful, age appropriate environment under the guidance of a múinteoir cúram leanaí. This group will learn Irish songs and words in preparation for Big School. They are entitled to 2 Free Preschool Years, and anyone between the ages of 2.5 and 5 may attend. If a child is looking to attend Gaelscoil Osraí in Loughboy, our Class falls under their admissions policy as a recognised Naíonra.
The ECCE Scheme allows for two years of FREE pre-school, Children are entitled to avail of this Scheme in September of the Year they turn 3 years old. The ECCE Scheme is run over 38 weeks, alongside primary school Days, for 3 hours each day. The children are exposed to a wonderful curriculum, based on the Aisteár framework, which allows them to take control of their own learning by expanding on their individual interests. Children blossom and flourish during this period and are so ready for Big School. The Christmas and End of Year School plays and concerts by both our Naíonra and Montessori Groups are a time where Children Parents and Staff can be so proud of all they have achieved.
All the teachers and staff are amazing at Busy Bees, and they treat the children like their own. The facility is fantastic and the outdoor space is great. My children love going to Busy Bees every day and learn so much. I couldn't imagine them going anywhere else.
