  1. Padraic Smith,

Padraic Smith Insurance Brokers is a leading specialist in the Irish market for childcare insurance. We are a family company with 18 years of childcare insurance experience. Over this time we have researched every aspect of insuring crèches and schools, so we have done the hard work for you in staying abreast of the risks faced by the education sector.We have therefore designed insurance solutions to address the specific needs and risks associated with Montessori, crèche and school insurance. Unlike other products, our insurance policies are custom built and not off-the-shelf contracts that often do not fit the specific needs of this sector.

For instance, we offer the highest current level of Public Liability Limit of Indemnity at €6.5M as standard and include all low risk School Outings automatically with every policy

At Padraic Smith we attribute much of our success to our ability to be sensitive and responsive to the very special needs of Childcare Providers. We also have an in-depth understanding of the insurance needs covering all forms of childcare and we offer insurance cover for the following services:

  • Montessori Schools
  • Crèche / Child and Infant Child Care Centres
