"My son is currently attending Jolly Tots and he absolutely loves it.He is genuinely disappointed at the weekends because he can't go to playschool! He had a speech delay on starting playschool and he has come on so much in his time at Jolly Tots.He has blossomed into a chatty, confident little boy thanks to his little friends & especially his amazing teachers who go above and beyond for all the kids in their care. I would absolutely recommend Jolly Tots to anyone.

My son started Jolly tots pre-school in 2016 (and as every parent goes through the worry of their childs first day) my experience was a great one... my son settled in straight away and Niamh and Siobhan have been amazing since his first day.

my son loves going to Jolly tots so much that he even asks to go on weekends and is very disappointed when he can't... my son comes out of pre-school everyday with the biggest smile on his face and always has something fun and happy to say about his day...

my son adores Niamh and Siobhan so much, they both put such hard work and time and happiness and mostly fun into their day...everyday!!! my son is greeted every morning with big smiles and happy good mornings every morning which is beautiful...ive never worried once about my son from the moment he stepped foot into Jolly tots...

sadly his time will be ending in June as he moves on to big school and it will be the saddest time for myself and my son i wish we could keep Niamh and Siobhan for a little bit finally Jolly tots is a pre-school i would highly recommend its a pre-school filled with fun, love, play, happiness, energy, singing and dancing and mostly amazing work... my son has learned so much since he started including life skills and manners

Jolly Tots has been like one of the family since my eldest started there in 1999/2000 and my youngest is there right now, she is keeping both Niamh and Shiv on their toes. The love and attention shown to their little charges is second to none. Graduation ceremonies,

Christmas plays, pyjama days and not forgetting Jungle Dave are amongst the many wonderful experiences my children have had.

On a personal note, both Niamh and Shiv have been wonderful support to myself during tough times over the years and no doubt other parents would agree. They are both two of the warmest and caring people I am blessed to know.

Thank you both for the wonderful preschool education,

love and laughter and fun shown to my four. These are memories I will cherish forever.

Since my son started in Jollytots in 2016 he has come on so much. He started when there was lots of changes happening in his little life, moving house, new brother and starting playschool. Niamh & Shivvy really helped settling him and adjusting to all things new in his life. He goes into playschool with a big smile and leaves with a big smile. You can tell the girls really care for each child as if they were their own. When leaving your children in someone else's care, it can be a bit daunting. You have nothing to worry about here, I would highly recommend Jollytots. It will be sad day for my son (&me) when he leaves this year for big school.

I cannot recommend Jolly tots enough.. Niamh and Shivvy are the most welcoming people and have so much time to give to the children and the parents..

I had some trouble with my son when he first started his first year in 2016 and they coached me through it.. how to handle his behaviour and within weeks he was a different child..

They really take the time to get to know the children..

I'm devastated he is leaving in June.. I have my daughter enrolled for 2020 already.. I wouldn't go anywhere else.. I travel from Navan everyday because I feel they give my child the best start in life and that's most important..

My son is almost finished his second year at Jolly Tots and he has enjoyed every moment of his time there. He has learnt so many amazing things, acquired lots of new skills and had so much fun too. He has made great friends and always runs in with a smile on his face! Niamh and Shivy are so engaging and supportive, with the children and with the parents too. My younger daughter will be going to jolly Tots next year and I know she will enjoy it just as much as her big brother has.

L. Knight April 2018

Our kids love going to preschool at jolly tots, it is the perfect setting for them to learn and have fun,the teachers are friendly and enthusiastic and our girls have really thrived in their first year.The play school is set in beautiful gardens and has a huge outdoor play area.

S. Mc Govern April 2018

"My 22 year old niece along with my 9 year old niece attended Jolly Tots Pre school, Both had a lovely pre-school experience. Therefore Jolly Tots was my first choice of pre-school for my son and daughter. Niamh and Shivvy gave them all great care ,love and attention. Niamh was especially supportive to myself and my son, giving him all the time, support and encouragement his individual needs required. Many thanks Niamh!xx"

"Jolly Tots has been a big part of our lives, having had 3 children attend over the years, our youngest will finish this year. Jolly Tots is a wonderful place for our children, it gives them an excellent start in their learning. Niamh and Sibh are like part of our family and we will certainly miss them and we would have no hesitation in recommending them and this fabulous school . . . ."

C. Maguire

"Our two children really blossomed in the warm and friendly environs of JollyTots. The care shown to them by Niamh and Siobhan left them skipping into school each day..If we had ten more kids we would send them all to Jolly Tots........"

S. Stapleton


"This is my daughters second year in Jolly Tots and she absolutely loves it. She has come on in leaps and bounds and grown into a confident little girl. Teacher Niamh and Sibh are brilliant and I'll be heartbroken when she finishes up in June. I cannot praise Jolly Tots enough!"

O. Coyne

"I have sent both my children to Jolly Toys. They both loved going to school and everyday they would run in.They always left with a smile on their face after a busy day. Both my boys loved Niamh and Siobhan , they are two wonderful ladies with a lot of patience. . . ."

"My heart is breakingas I know when my wee man leaves Jolly Tots this summer, he will be leaving behind two of the best teachers and "Mams" he has ever known.Both of my children attended the wonderful Pre-school that is Jolly Tots and have regaled me with stories about Van Gogh, Beethoven and how to plant sunflowers and tomatoes!my shy wee man has blossomed into a confident, joyful little boy, well able and proud of writing his name and picking out words he recognises........Niamh and Sibh are the epitome of "teacher" kind, knowledgeable, firm and full of fun I hope all his future muinteoirs are half as good "

My three children have all had an amazing experience at Jolly Tots. My youngest will finish up this year and it will be an emotional goodbye!

Niamh and Sibh are fantastic teachers wiyh huge hearts and very caring natures.My daughter has thrived in this school. she's a well educated little girlboth academically and socially. It has given her a great start for primary school. I would absolutely recommend Jolly Tots Pre-school in a heart beat.

A. Nulty June '14

I found Jolly Tots amazing for both my children. They have both learned so much from their experience in this school. It has taught them so much that they will use through their lives. the teachers are so brilliant with the children. I cannot praise this school enough for how much hard work they put into the children that they teach.

J & P Brady June '14

My daughter's experience at Jolly Tots has been a thoroughly positive one due in no small part to the great work of Niamh and Sibh at the nurturing atmosphere they have daughter has had a really well rounded pre-school education, ranging from learning all about Degas (pretty impressive) to getting out to play in the fresh air and fantastic garden when the weather is good .She literally skips into school each day and as a parent I can think of no better endorsement!

L. Doyle June '14

Jolly Tots has been a wonderful experience for my son. He has learned so much and had great fun along the way. Niamh and Siobhan genuinely love the children and take great pride in their work. I would highly recommend Jolly tots, my younger son can't wait to get in the door !

P. Folan June '14

Jolly Tots is brilliant! My three boys benefitted so much from it, it really prepared them for school. They enjoyed their time there, it is a fun, happy and friendly environment.

G. Byrne June '14

My little girl started in Jolly Tots at 3 and I can't believe how much she has thrived. her confidence and her social skills have soared, as well as her imagination, reading and writing. the teachers are so tuned in to the childrenand it is obvious from contact with regard to illness or concerns as a parent that they have an interest in each child as an individual. Thank you Jolly Tots !

M. Walsh June '14

Jolly Tots is a place where your child is made feel Safe, Loved and Really Special. Well done Niamh and Shivvy, you do a great job!

C. Murphy June '14

" A brilliant Pre-school, lots of learning through fun and so much encouragement for all the children from " teacher Niamh " and Siobhan. Our daughter loved every minute at Jolly Tots and we can't wait to send our next child."

S & D Kelly June'14

"My Daughter has thrived since starting at Jolly Tots.....She is now quite independent and self sufficient. All of her natural talents have been encouraged and applauded and her areas of weakness have been developed . Niamh and Siobhan have offered insights and advice that I had not previously picked up on .....She adores both of her teachers and it has always been a pleasure dealing with them both......I would highly recommend Niamh and Sibh to anyone and hope my daughter encounters the same level of dedication, care and professionalism in the rest of her schooling years.

L & C O'Brien June '14

" The Last 5 years with Jolly Tots , have been trusting, loving and fulfilling in every way for all of our 3 daughters. Thank you so much Niamh & Siobhán."

C. Murphy June 2015

" I have nothing but praise and admiration for Niamh and Sibhie . My daughter loved her 2 years in JollyTots so much and all of us as a family will miss it very much. I cannot explain how helpful and giving of their time niamh and Sibhie were when it came to meeting my daughter's needs. I highly recommend Jolly Tots to anyone for a fun and caring pre-school experience "

F. O'Hehir June 2015
