    St Ciarans Specialised Pre-School was set up in 1983 to cater for children with special needs. This development was of great benefit to both the children and their parents in the South Leitrim area. St. Ciarans pre-school offered a preschool programme for children from 3 to 6 years of age who were referred by the Early Intervention Team. H.S.E. As numbers decreased we took on a very innovative task and ran a pilot

    programme of integrating our specialised pre-school into the community with back up and support of our Nursing and Staff from St. Ciarans. This proved to be very successful and presently we have no referrals whom require a specialist pre-school service. We are mindful that this specialise pre-school service may be necessary in the future and we have been involved in the planning and architectural design with the learning Disability Manager; H.S.E., Occupational Therapists and Pre-School Inspection Team with a view to incorporating child care for children with special needs into the Canon Donohoe Hall childcare project in Mohill. North West Parents and Friends will continue to deliver this service in this new Centre when necessary.
