We would like to welcome all the new children who are started with us this month. James, Saoirse and Finn in the baby room. We have Jack who has returned to us and is now in the Junior Afterschool Room.

We also would like to welcome Aoife who is working with our Junior Afterschoolers, Sarah and Orla who are working in our ECCE classes; we hope you have all settled in well.


Midterm Break

The children who attend from 9-12 will be on mid-term break from Monday 28th of October and will return on Monday 4th of Novmber. The centre is closed for everyone on Monday 28th as it is a bank holiday.


Emma in Montessori has become a big sister to baby Aoife recently. Big Congratulations to you all!


Breakfast Morning

A big thank you to everybody who took part in our Cheerio’s Child line Breakfast morning which took place on Friday 11th. We welcome donations from anyone who still want to do so.



It’s the time of the year again which all the children are looking forward to HALLOWEEN! ! !. To give our children the opportunity to celebrate this day, Thursday 31st October has been chosen as our dress up day and we look forward to see all the children in their Halloween outfits as they celebrate the day with lots of fun packed Halloween games and activities.


We are currently finalising plans for the photographer to visit us. He will take individual pictures of the children, family pictures and also class photographs. Keep an eye out for notices around the crèche. Please also remember we cannot take pictures of your children without parents’ signing the permission slips. The girls will be giving these out as soon as the date has been finalised. 


·       As it is getting really cold now we ask that parents should bring in coats, hats and gloves for their children for outdoor play. We are also asking for raincoats and wellingtons for all the children for rainy days.


·       We would like to remind all parents that children should not bring in their own toys to crèche. As you can understand we do not want children’s toys to go home damaged in any way and bringing them in can cause great confusion to other children who think they belong to the crèche. This can cause unwanted bickering and unease amongst the children.


·       Can all parents entering the Baby/Wobbler Room and The Toddler Room please remember to put on the shoe covers before entering the room. We ask that you use the shoe covers rather than removing your shoes, this is for hygiene reasons.
