Little Turners Committee Playgroup has a long history in  Turners Cross.  It was established some 30 years ago. In 2000, we moved from Curragh Road to number 25, Capwell Road, Turners Cross. We are notified to the HSE .  The Pre-school is run by a voluntary management committee.  We pride ourselves on our homely atmosphere and qualified experienced staff.

We have a child friendly outdoor play area, sheltered sand play area and planting boxes for the Children to enjoy.  We are guided by the principles of Siolta (The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education) and Aistear (The National Curriculum Framework for Early Childhood Education.

 Our staff consists of Annmarie Geraghty who has a B.A.. in Montessori Education and Carol Ahern who holds a FETAC Level 5 Certificate in Childcare.They  have 25 years experience of working with children between them , and really enjoy their  time spent with the children each day .
