About Us

Smart Angels Child Care in Swords, Co. Dublin was established 2OO5 and is a Montessori School offering a comprehensive curriculum in pre-school education.

We provide a bright, fully equipped environment in which each child can reach their full potential under the guidance of expert tutors.   Our clean and comfortable surroundings, and large all weather safety-surfaced garden, provide the ideal setting for your child’s first adventures into learning and independence.

We operate a full curriculum to the highest standards and are one of the few fully equipped Montessoris in Dublin, in other words, we are not a Playgroup dressed up as a Montessori.

Smart Angels participates in the free ECCE Scheme and complies with Aistear & Síolta guidelines as well as TUSLA regulations.

We embrace a non-denominational, non-discriminatory policy and are a member of the St Nicholas Montessori Society of Ireland.
