About Us

Welcome to Greengables Preschool...


Greengables is an independent preschool based in Central Primary School right in the heart of the community of Carrickfergus.  Established in the 1980s, we have grown from a small playgroup setting into a highly accomplished preschool with two morning classes ranging in age from 2 years 10 months to 4 years.  Through the years, we have gained an excellent reputation for providing high quality education and care, achieving this through our ethos that children should be able to explore a rich and diverse range of activities within a stimulating, flexible, inclusive and welcoming learning environment.


Our ability to achieve such high standards is due in part to our preschool being based within Central Primary School.  We believe this early intregration into a primary school setting helps the children build not only an understanding of the academic environment but also helps develop social skills.


The preschool has two dedicated classrooms and an outdoor adventure play area but is also able to avail of the facilities of the primary school which ensures that even on rainy days the children are provided with much needed physical exercise.


Building close links between home and preschool is highly valued at Greengables so that together we can achieve the very best for our children.
