2006 An Idea is Born
I moved to Balbriggan in 2005 . I had been working in Childcare for 15 years. 5 as a Montessori Teacher and 10 as a Childcare Worker with the Child Psychiatric Service in a school for children with Emotional and Behavioural difficulties.
I had children myself and realised that although there were Creches that had school age child there were no stand alone ones so I decided to fill that gap and the idea for Tots + Swots Montessori and Afterschool was born. After a years research and planning I rented Balrothery Community School and hired my first member of staff. As there was already a Montessori there at the time so I could just do the afterschool.
