"A mahoosive thank you to Martina, Catherine, Rita,Tracy and Joy for taking care of and giving such care and attention to Malachy and guiding our little man in the right direction. He is so ready for the next big step. I cannot stress enough how important a great preschool is and Rèalta Draìochta Preschool is just that. Keep up the amazing work. Words just aren't enough. Go n'éirí an t'ádh libh. Go raibh maith agaibh go léir. Xx Malachy, Julie-Anne & Jay."

"My son Darragh has been in Réalta Draíochta since September. The fact that he loves going to pre-school every day is a testimony to Martina, Kathryn, Joy and all the staff. It’s such a lovely relaxed learning environment where the children can be themselves and where they learn to respect each other. A home from home but possibly more fun! The delivery of the Aistear curriculum is second to none. Children are encouraged to explore areas they are naturally interested in and to have fun doing it. The curriculum in Réalta Draíochta is truly child led in every sense of the word. The outdoor facilities are fantastic and Darragh especially enjoys the mud kitchen! He loves the walks he takes with this class in the surrounding area which is unique in that it brings a little of the countryside to the town. The Irish language and culture hold a special place in Réalta Draíochta and the “cúpla focail” is encouraged. As an infant teacher I can’t recommend Réalta Draíochta enough. By the time he finishes Darragh will be more than able to start his journey in “big school”.

Thank you for all you do – you truly go above and beyond!."

"I just want to say a big 'thank you' to Kathryn and Martina for all their hard work over the preschool year. They provide an amazing range of activities and experiences for the preschoolers and are forever conjuring up new ideas. Mud kitchen, nature walks, art and crafts, baking, singing, stories and imaginary play to name just a few. Naoise has really enjoyed the gentle and fun approach. It's also been lovely as parents to get updates and photos of various activities of the week on the parents facebook page. We're all set for junior infants, thanks for the wonderful year!"
