Leaving your child in the care of others can be difficult and stressful, especially if it's the first time. We take special care of all of our children, from the tiniest to the oldest, and we're happy to answer any and all of your questions about your child's care, to minimise your concerns and maximise your confidence in our services.
Whatever the age of your child, he or she will enjoy a range of stimulating activities, to help develop physical, intellectual and social skills and to start learning the fun way, along with lots of new friends!
Our baby day-care in Ballyrobert assures you of a qualified supervisor to every three babies. We separate our babies into two groups:
- Babies of 6 months to 18 months
- "Tiddlers" of 18 months to 2 years
Our baby rooms are fully equipped for engaging and stimulating activities, to entertain as well as educate your little one. There's also a dedicated cot room so that tired babies can relax with a nap.
Our pre-school playgroups focus on caring for all of your child's developmental needs: physical, intellectual, social and emotional.
We run 3 pre-school groups, each arranged to match activities, both indoors and outdoors, with current levels of progress:
- Tweenies aged 2 to 2 1/2 years
- Toddlers aged 2 1/2 to 3 years
- Pre-school children aged 3 to 4 years
"There is a wide range of games and activities; my child has developed so much due to the play and crafts organised each day. Outdoor play is very safe and well supervised."
