Ballybay Community Créche opened its doors 10 years ago on 28th January 2018. This is a great achievement for the Management & Staff team (past & present). The créche provides affordable childcare and education for babies and children for over 115 families in the community. It employs over 20 qualified Childcare Practitioners, Kitchen/Cleaning & Admin Personal. We also have participants on Community Employment and TUS training schemes. The créche has went from strength to strength over the 10 years. It was officially opened by President Mary Mc Aleese on 2nd June 2009. We will have a celebration to mark this anniversary in June of this year.

The Créche is now taking names for children eligible for the FREE Preschool year Sept 2018 - June 2019. If your child (or anyone you know) has a child aged 2 years and 8 months they can attend preschool for three FREE hours per day. We run two morning Preschool session (9am - 12pm) and one afternoon session (1pm - 4pm). We have waiting lists for places from the baby room up and run on a first come, first served basis, so why not call into the créche to secure registration with a small deposit. For further details please contact Laura on 042 9756996.

We have a clothing collection on February 5th. If you have any clothing (adult or child), shoes ,handbags etc... please drop them into the creche by Friday 2nd February. Thank you in advance for your support.
