Ireland’s First Purpose Built Creche
Before 1995, the idea of a purpose built crèche didn’t exist in Ireland. It was a pioneering idea
born in the minds of two working mothers, with a vision to provide high quality childcare for all.
Already experienced childcare experts, this vision led them to travel to Scandinavia, Italy and the
UK studying childcare and observing global best practice. They then combined this knowledge with their
own personal commitment to provide the very best childcare for families in Ireland. It was from this
passion that Park Academy Childcare was born and Ireland’s first purpose built crèche was established
at Cabinteely Co. Dublin.
Since then Park Academy Childcare have continued to expand and are now the leading childcare provider
in Ireland, running seven crèche centres across South Dublin & North Wicklow. We are also the proud
founders of the unique and innovative Nature Kindergarten facility located at Killruddery Forest in Bray.
Setting the Bar for High Quality Childcare
Since day one our ethos has been ‘Every child first every day’ and this passion continues to drive
us to this day. Our highly qualified and experienced team of childcare professionals are committed
to upholding the highest standards of childcare at all times. Our passionate Care & Education Team
continue to observe what advances are being made in childcare internationally – although these days
we’re proud to say that it’s Park Academy Childcare that’s setting the bar, as exemplified by our
“All Ireland Centre of Ireland Centre of Excellence Awards”. The more you get to know us, the more
you will realise just why that is.
Nurturing the Whole Child – A Holistic Approach to Childcare
At Park Academy Childcare we are dedicated to promoting the holistic development of every child in
our care. In addition to education and academic learning, we also focus on developing a child’s
physical, social, emotional & spiritual development. This is reflected in our early childhood
education programme which includes a wide range of extracurricular activities.
From our unique ‘JUMP’ sports & fitness programme to music, art & crafts and yoga, our activities
are designed to nurture the whole child. These activities also give children the opportunity to find
their strengths and develop their unique talents. And that’s not even to mention the Adventure Bus
or our highly nutritious chef prepared meals! We truly are committed to providing the highest quality
of childcare in each and every area of your child’s development.
