Being born of Villierstown Montessori School the origins of VECP are firmly rooted in educational surroundings.  It is part of our purpose to promote education in the community and so far we have been doing this by continuing to provide the pre-school service and evening classes.  Education and culture blend seamlessly in the classes in Traditional Arts: Irish Music, Irish Dance and Handcrafts and our local traditions associated with the River Blackwater are continued in activities at the Quay.
