Welcome to Kids United

Creche & Montessori Centre in Dublin
We aim to create a learning environment where every child feels respected and supported.

As a family owned organisation, Kids United aim to provide a ‘home from home’ atmosphere where all children have the opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually by playing, exploring and learning with others in a fun, safe and healthy environment.

Kids United Classrooms

Stimulating environments for each age group
Caterpillar Room

This is an exciting environment for children to find their feet and become more co-ordinated. The children spend much of their day experimenting, exploring and beginning to socialise.

Butterfly Room

In the Butterfly Room, the day is based around both routine and the children’s interests, whilst following the Aistear curriculum.

Ladybird Room

The Ladybird Room incorporates Aistear into the Montessori method of education. The Montessori method is an approach that values the development of the whole child.

Bumblebee Room

The Bumblebee Room is a play-based environment which also incorporates elements of the Montessori method of education.

Dragonfly Room

Through a play-based curriculum, each child is given the time to explore, make choices and engage in a range of age appropriate activities.

After School Care

Our after school service caters for children from 4 years +. During the afternoon children can avail of a number of activities.

Our Curriculum

Kids United follows the Aistear Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and Síolta, The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education.

Aistear’s four key areas of development are:

  • Communication
  • Well-Being
  • Identity and Belonging
  • Exploring and Thinking

More information can be found on Siolta.ie  NCCA.ie   Aistearsiolta.ie

Each child has a learning journal which documents their time and development throughout the year, containing photographs, stories and drawings.

A copy of the weekly curriculum plan is available in each room. Themes are changed monthly. Each room has long term goals which they aim to achieve with the children throughout the year. Individual observations are recorded and shared with parents.

Staff plan the weekly activities based on observations, so each plan suits the age and stage of development of the children in the room.

Testimonials about Kids United


Following a recommendation from a friend, I went to visit Kids United and I am so happy I did. My son just loves it there and he arrives each morning excited about the day ahead. He has grown in confidence since starting with Kids United and it is just so lovely to see him having fun and interacting with his friends. He is looked after with such care and attention and I know that everyone at Kids United has a genuine interest in his development and wellbeing. The staff members work together like a family and each one of them is kind, thoughtful and full of enthusiasm. The crèche is run with such professionalism and they have been accommodating and flexible. The facilities and activities are excellent and the menu is varied and really healthy.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Kids United and I recommend it wholeheartedly and without hesitation to any parent looking for a caring, trustworthy and safe place for their son or daughter.

My two daughters attended Kids United from 2012 to 2018 and from the beginning they were happy there.

Emma was aged 1 and Rachel was aged 3 when they started, so we experienced every room and every staff member working there.  I always felt that the staff took a personal interest in each child, and the best sign to me was that the girls adored the staff and skipped in the door every day.

When they started school and were attending the After-School service, I was happy that they were being collected by someone who knew them well and took an interest in their progress.  Every day when I collected them (even though they are now well able to talk!) I still got an update from the staff as to what they had eaten, how their form was, how they got on with their homework etc which as a working mum is valuable information.  I was consistently impressed with the quality of food on the menu plans, with a real emphasis on healthy eating.  They ate more fruit and veg at Kids United than they ever ate at home!

After 6 great years, we are sorry to be finishing up with Kids United, but we are very grateful for the care and attention they received over the years – we all have happy memories of their time there.  I could not recommend them highly enough.

Both of our children were in Kids United from the age of 6 months. We could not have asked for any more from them – from the friendly family atmosphere through to the food provided and the daily routines in place, they received excellent care all the way through. We feel the care and education our children have had at Kids United has helped them develop brilliantly and we were all very sorry to leave the staff and friends made due to relocation back to the UK.
