Little Harvard Crèche, Merrymeeting, Rathnew, Co. Wicklow.

At Little Harvard, we encourage the development and social skills of each individual child. Children learn under the Aistear method of teaching and socialise with peers of their own age. At Little Harvard in Rathnew, we have a dedicated after school service for children aged between 5 and 12 years of age with our own buses to drop children to and from schools in the local area.

Little Harvard Rathnew is located in the Merrymeeting centre, only a few kilometres from the N11, and consequently is suitable both for families commuting and those living in the local area.
