During this very difficult time and with cases of Covid-19 soaring, the Government has decided to extend the current restrictions until March 5th. We have now received an official directive from the Department and pre-school is to remain closed until further notice. However we are still moving forward and after a meeting held today with Senior Management we will be in contact with parents and children Via email to send resource to parents and engaging with curriculum based activities to try and help parents and children through this difficult time.
At Tots we remain very concerned of the lack of interaction that all our Pre-School children are missing out on and the valuable Social and developmental experience that they usually encounter while in our Services. The Packs were a great success and we have had a fabulous response. We are currently making up new packs and we will liaise with parents directly. In the mean time If you require any further activities please contact Tots and we will personally deliver the resources to you. Please stay safe and be encouraged that if you are an essential worker and your child is in with us we are doing everything in our power to keep Staff, Children and Parents safe.

A huge thank you to Karen and our amazing Tots Team in our Moorfield Branch. Karen had an un scheduled inspection today February 8th 2021.
Tusla inspected our Moorfield branch and to say we Smashed it is an understatement. We want to share with our parents that the inspector said our floors were so clean you could eat off them. The inspector said she had never seen a team to be so in tune with each other and that the pods were just amazing. The inspector was so impressed with the teaching that was being provided to all afterschool children and especially their access to computers and activities on Seesaw was just amazing. Her one regret was she could not report on this section of the service because its classed as afterschool. She wished she could make it known for the unseen work we at Tots are doing. We are FULLY COMPLIANT in every aspect of our services.
But the biggest change was the fabulous outdoor space that we have designed and delivered upon to our children. An area of delight, fun and imagination. The inspector was blown away with the new structures in the garden and outdoor infrared heating and lighting, this allowing the children to be outside at all times no matter the weather.
We are so very proud of Karen our manager and our team of staff.
A huge thank you from Annette, Audrey and Amanda for your amazing report. We know we are the best but its nice when an inspector tells you and thanks you for your dedication.

Every pre-school child that can not attend Tots due to the current restrictions either received or will tomorrow receive their gift pack from us.
They contain lots of resources and little treats. We hope you liked them. Here is a picture of Orla after receiving her pack. We would like to thank all the parents for the lovely texts and emails we received to thank us.
We were overwhelmed.
