Overview

Open: 7.45am – 6.30pm
Age: 4 Months to 2.5 Years

Sharavogue is committed to providing loving, warm and consistent care and education for your child. We provide a stimulating environment in which the children’s development is encouraged and we have a flexible and sensitive approach to their needs.

We recognise early childhood as a unique stage to be valued in its own right and its importance as the basis for all future development. We feel it is important that working parents get to spend as much quality time with their children as possible and therefore we provide a fully inclusive service to the working parent where we look after all your child’s requirements. This includes:

  • All bottles required throughout the day freshly prepared using formula provides by Sharavogue.
  • A night pack of prepared bottles for you to take home in the evening up to the toddler stage.
  • All nappies and creams provided throughout the day in the Creche.
  • Freshly prepared food cooked daily by our in-house chefs and tailored to your childs growing needs from weaning through to junior school
“Together may we give our children the roots to grow and the wings to fly”

Five Diverse Environments

Ratios

As recommended by Tusla, all childcare facilities are required to have a standard ratio of staff to children. In all rooms in Sharavogue Crèche, we ensure these ratios are met and in many cases exceeded ensuring a safe and stimulating environment for the children.

Safety & Security

We have a fingerprint security system on all exit and entry doors into Sharavogue. Only parents and nominated collectors can access the building.

Sharavogue Crèche has five seperate  rooms designed specifically  to meet the children’s needs at each developmental stage.

Babyroom, Wobblers, Rompers , Toddlers  &  Pre-School

Large outdoor areas with play equipment

We are fortunate to have plenty of outdoor space in a leafy environment providing a perfect outdoor setting for the children.

We encourage children from Wobblers onwards to have daily outdoor time in the garden and playground (weather permitting) encouraging positive growth and development of your child through opportunities to explore and play. We have a number of dedicated age- appropriate areas with outdoor toys and equipment.

Aistear and Siolta

In Sharavogue we use the Aistear Curriculum & Siolta Frameworks as a guide in planning learning experiences for the children. Aistear is the Irish word for journey. This allows us to document each childs unique journey throughout their time in Sharavogue.

Aistear embraces learning and development through four interconnected themes – Well-being, Identity & Belonging, Communicating and Exploring & thinking.

Siolta is the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education.  Siolta offers Principles, Standards, Components of Quality and Signposts for Reflection for childcare providers and aims to support engagement with this National Quality Framework.
