The crèche at Youth Horizons was opened in 2003 and was awarded the centre of excellence award in 2005 by the National Children’s Nurseries Association. This programme gives some of our students who have children the opportunity to return to education, while also providing their children with a positive preschool experience.
The crèche is a vibrant space where children are provided with the highest standard of childcare that is delivered in our purpose-designed crèche. The secure boundary garden provides a safe space were children can explore the natural world, and have fun playing games with their friends.
The children in our care are encouraged to learn through their direct experience, in a crèche environment that is safe, stimulating and provides a sensible balance between a flexible and structured routine.
Our aim is to provide your child with a sound educational grounding and to ensure they enter school happy and confident.
All staff are qualified childcare professionals and are supported with further education and training such as The High Scope method. In addition to this our staff follow the Síolta and Aistear curricula.
If you would like to organise a parent tour of the centre, have no hesitation in contacting us either by e-mail or by phone. We will gladly organise a tour were as a parent you can see first hand an environment that is described as a “home away from home”, and why Youth Horizon’s crèche prides itself on not just being a crèche, but a family-orientated community.
