Welcome to Elisa Home-School Castleknock
Elisa Home-School is an alternative education based on care, love, guidance and encouragement. I teach children individually or through group activities on a cosy environment. A center designed from new born babies up to 3-4 years old.
I work together with parents to maintain a friendly, fun and educational environment where children feel at home. Elisa Home-School (Childminding Services) was founded in 2015 after 10 years working in creches and families.

Education method and Pedagogy.
I take a holistic approach to education mixing established and proven methods such a Waldorf and Montessori educations along with my own personal touch, shaped with years working in Early Year Education.
I seek to develop not only the children’s mind but also their character, compassion, and creativity.
I focus on hands-on experience, freedom and choices for all my children, and I integrate story telling, fun activities, and handwork into their educational curriculum.
I observe what the child is developmentally ready to learn and then provide gentle guidance and direction – enough to give them start. The rest develops of itself.
Activities we do
I designed a monthly curriculum activity plan that covers all areas of the official “Early Childhood Curriculum Framework (Aisteair and Siolta)” for a complete educational curriculum. We cover the following:
✓ Identity and Belonging
✓ Exploring and Thinking
✓ Nature Environment
Montessori material will used to encourage all children in practical life, sensorial, language ,maths and cultural activities.
Food & Snacks we eat
I believe that a healthy mind need a healthy body. Nutrition is important. I provide with homemade, fresh meals made every day by myself. Everything we consume is based in a healthy & balance diet and I take in consideration personal intolerances, allergies, and their age: Lots of veggies, fruits and yummy shakes with coconut milk!. But from time to time they too deserve some chocolates and sweeties. 🙂
During the day I provide:
✓ Morning snack
✓ Bottle / Milk
✓ Evening snack
I am a experienced and professional childcare worker who aims to constantly improve long term child caring. This is the reason I opened my own small and familiar “miniature Creche at home”. I look after children, establishing a proper routine in a fun and friendly environment. I constantly attend meetings and workshops organised by different childcare associations to upgrade myself in early years education and to keep improving my skills and services.
I am qualified and experienced:
✓ Waldorf & Montessori education. ✓ Maternity care ✓ Special needs education. ✓ First aid. ✓ Child Psychology. ✓ Garda vetted. ✓ Schools/Creches experience. ✓ Fully insured.
What parents say
They provided very good care for two of our sons one with autism. Thanks to Elisa Babysitting we enjoyed Phil Collins concert in June without worries. I can not recommend them enough. Thanks for everything Elisa.
Elisa and her team are brilliant babysitters. Elisa has been babysitting for us a few years now and both boys love her. Elisa clearly loves her job and children, and is the best and making both parents and children feel at ease. She’s amazing!
