Play and Language Support Preschool

At PALS Preschool, we aim to create an educational environment where autistic children feel safe, secure, included and respected and where each child's strengths and contributions are valued and celebrated. We are committed to using evidence-informed practices to support our pupils to reach their potential.

PALS Preschool opened in September 2008 and we have recently moved to our new purpose built centre in Hampton Wood, Finglas. Our sessions run Monday to Friday from September to July (inclusive) and we provide morning and afternoon sessions. 

We enroll children aged 3 - 5 years and you can add your child's name to our waiting by emailing us at or by phoning 085 842 5660.

PALS Preschool is a registered charity  | RCN. 20070281

PALS Approach

PALS encourages a child centered, multidisciplinary environment, and works closely with each family at every step of the child’s education. We welcome input from other professionals ensuring consistency and a comprehensive service to the child and their family. PALS currently engage a consultant Speech and Language Therapist (SLT), Olive Gormley who has been trained in PROMPT, Lamh and Hanen Certified. Olive is proficient in administering a range of standardised speech and language assessments.
