At Kilcooley Women’sCentre, we have the benefit of an on-site
crèche, Kiddie Academy which is supervised by fully
qualified staff. Members can attend their class with the
knowledge their child is being well cared for, whilst still
being close by.
The crèche is a bright and spacious environment and
has been very beneficial for children starting playgroup
or nursery, as they have had experience of a structured
childcare environment. The crèche enjoys close links
to the nursery school located in Kilcooley Primary School
and “First Friends Playgroup”.
The aim of the Child Care Facility within Kilcooley Womens
Centre is to provide a high quality learning and
play environment for children from birth to pre-school.
This is to support parents taking part in classes and training,
to aid their career development and to support and enable
their entry into the employment market. Parents can also
avail of the Drop In and other activities such as the Health
Development Programme and the Reading Group.
During the child’s
stay the crèche staff, as well as providing a quality
learning and play environment, can provide snacks such as
toast and fruit. If your child is staying through the lunch
period you are advised to supply a packed lunch.
During the child’s
settling in period we would ask parents to encourage their
children to get to know other children and staff. This will
help your child adjust to new surroundings.
Do not hesitate to let the staff know if your child has any
likes or dislikes which might help them settle in. If your
child has any comfort toys let the staff know. If leaving
the toy with the child please mark it with the child’s
name so that it can be identified.
Kiddie Academy provides quality Child-Care on a sessional
basis for babies and pre- school children. This is provided
Monday to Friday morning – 9am to 2.00pm
