Welcome to Òganan
Òganan provides high quality Gaelic childcare and education in an environment that is safe and stimulating. Our mission is to provide a place where Gaelic language learning takes place through play and learning. Everyone is treated as an individual. We aim to provide the best in childcare education through Gaelic – for our children, for life.
Our Promise to Parents
To provide a fun environment in Gaelic, adhering to the highest standards of care and education, tailored to the individual interests and need of your child. We cherish every child we have the privilege to care for, from 3 years old until they leave for high school.
We know each time we welcome a new family; we have two customers – the child and the parent. We recognise the parents are the child expert, so we make sure the service we deliver is in tune with the parents needs too. Having made your decision, we guarantee parents will only find the best at Òganan – from our team right through to our facilities and activities.
A GAELIC LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WHERE EVERYONE CAN USE THE LANGUAGE NATURALLY IN A RANGE OF CONTEXTS AND NOT JUST INSIDE THE CLASSROOM.
Our approach to learning and teaching is through child centered play and education. An opportunity to explore, play and grow in a safe and secure environment
Out of School Care
Age-appropriate activities, first class facilities and equipment are designed to enrich your child in every possible way.
An exciting programme of play, sports and arts and crafts for the children to get active, make lots of new friends and have a great time during the school holidays.
