Your child’s development and natural curiosity are encouraged by our expert team in a colourful and creative environment. Your child will learn through play, developing their social skills and gaining confidence and independence. All the activities and the facility itself promote your child’s physical, emotional and cognitive development at all critical stages from Wobblers (ages 1-2) to Toddlers (ages 2-3) to Year 1 and Year 2 Montessori and Preschool (ages up to 5), including all NCS and ECCE schemes.
Our award-winning facility was opened in 2004, and has expanded on many occasions due to growing demand for the excellent standards of childcare Mellowes is known to offer. Our centre is purpose built and offers a sleep area, changing facilities and toilet facilities in each room allowing for independent operation. We provide year-round part/full time childcare. These services are all delivered under Ireland’s curriculum of Aistear and Siolta.
The national childcare scheme (NCS Scheme) is in operation at Mellowes Childcare Centre. We are subject to stringent health and safety standards, and registered with Tusla and all government schemes and official childcare agencies. All certification and assessments as required by a modern childcare centre are in operation here, regularly inspected by the regulatory authorities.
Childcare for Frontline and Essential Workers
We are open for business and continuing to provide our excellent standards of vital childcare services for essential workers, during Covid-19 lock-down. During the pandemic we have drawn on our experience and knowledge of hygiene, and are keeping our children and the community safe by encouraging good hand hygiene and teaching them how to take care of themselves.
We follow the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene, and rigidly follow many documented safety practices and procedures to prevent outbreaks of all infectious diseases at Mellowes, including Covid-19.
The procedures we have in place enable us to maintain a safe environment for our children and their families, and our own valued staff. We are fully supportive of and are able to do everything we can as a business to help in the national effort to combat and protect against Covid-19.
