About Fonthill

Fonthill Lodge is a family run crèche, Montessori & Afterschool serving families in Clonee, Lucan, Tallaght & Clondalkin. We have been providing excellent quality childcare and education for children since 1989. Our reputation is something we are very proud of and we strive to exceed expectations of our families

As every child develops differently we encourage each child to learn and grow as individuals at their own pace. Our rooms are safe, bright and clean with age appropriate toys and equipment.

Our team of qualified and caring staff are trained in first aid and we employ a qualified nurse. We are proud of our extremely low staff turnover and feel this is important for each child to build trust with their carers. We ensure adult child ratios are maintained as recommended by the HSE, ensuring your child receives the care and attention that they need. We operate a full Open Door Policy for parents in our safe and secure crèches.

We have a cook in each crèche who prepares and cooks a fresh, homemade, nutritious meal from principal ingredients everyday. Each centre also has a private, all weather playground where we encourage lots of out door activities and exercise.

We are inspected and approved by the HSE and the Environmental Health officer. We are members of Early Childhood Ireland and are fully insured.

Please call us with any questions you may have or to arrange to have a look around one of our creches.

Our 3 children, aged 11 to 6 have all attended Fonthill Lodge, Lucan since they were young babies. Although I now work in Fonthill Lodge, I can hand on heart say that my 3 children have spent a very happy 11 years with a lovely team of girls, who have done so much for their confidence, social skills and prepared them almost too well for school!! I am so grateful to the staff who took such good care of them for so many years!
