Cappoquin Childcare Notes

It is wonderful to hear the sound of playing happy children in and around the Community Centre.

We re-opened our doors to full day-care children on June 29th precautions were put in place to allow this return and to keep children and staff safe.

Por pre-school started on August 26th and have adjusted extremely well. We welcome back some children from last year and welcomed several children beginning their first year of ECCE pre-school. As we limit the number of people entering the building, drop off and collections are now taking place at the door. To our amazement, all children have taken this measure in their stride.

Our afterschool is now taking place in the main hall. The children have help with their homework, a tasty hot snack and plenty of space for activities.

While our measures regarding drop off/collections, pod systems, cleaning routines etc have changed, our care and passion for childcare and education has remained steadfast.

If you would like to contact us regarding booking your child into Crèche, Pre-school or Afterschool please email us at or phone 058 52746

Spaces are still available in the Baby room and afternoon spaces available in the Toddler room.

A limited number of spaces are still available in the Afterschool service ..
