Lifestyle Developments Drogheda Community Education

The Grove Early Years Education Centre

The Grove Early Years Education Centre is committed to providing quality, affordable and accessible childcare to parents and children in our community and surrounding areas. We aim to provide a safe, inclusive and stimulating environment where all children can learn, grow and develop at their own pace. We value the uniqueness of each child, children’s rights, the importance of play and the support of families

Play features greatly in our curriculum and we offer children a range of learning opportunities which are appropriate to the child’s stage of development. The Service is fully committed to being guided by the principles of Síolta and the curriculum framework Aistear. Our curriculum aims to encourage active learning, problem solving, effective communication, creativity and autonomy. We recognise how important high-quality early childhood experiences can be for children and how the diversity of experiences and relationships can shape children’s lives.

Dedicated Lifestlye Childcare website

We have created a dedicated Lifestyle Development Childcare website to give a more detailed overview of who we are, what we do, as well as to deliver the most up to date information about our services.
