About Donegal Playgroup


Donegal Community Playgroup & Montessori is a childcare service specialising in preschool care and education. We operate from a new purpose built facility and are conveniently situated beside the Playground in Donegal Town. 


Children can start Playgroup when they turn 2 years and 6 months although many 

register their interest in our advance booking register from birth. This enables you to get a better choice of sessions when the times comes for your child to attend playgroup asplaces are offered on a first come first served basis. 


We offer the ECCE (free preschool year), CCS (community childcare scheme) and TEC (training and education scheme) all on a sessional or part-time basis. 


As we are a non profit making organisation meaning we have extremely competitive prices and will do our very best to accomodate your needs.


At Donegal Playgroup we believe that each child deserves the best possible start and we believe caring and learning go hand in hand. We are devoted to providing every child in our care with the very best education and encourage learning in a fun, loving and safe environment. We pride ourselves in providing a great staff team all of whom have a shared vision and want nothing more than to give your child the best preschool experience possible.






We follow Aistear which is Irelands Curriculum framework for children from birth to 6 years and particularly enjoy developing on the childrens interests through getting out and about in the community, visiting places of local interest, learning about the environment and of course receiving visits from some of the important people in our lives. You can learn more by visiting this link to our Activities page.
