Who We Are
The Early Years team provide high quality, affordable child care and educational services to support children and parents in the local area. We are registered with TUSLA and a member of Early Childhood Ireland
Our early years practitioners are trained, motivated and friendly staff and are the cornerstone of our service.
We aim to provide a quality service and a stimulating environment for children to develop their social, personal and educational skills and learn through a planned and child lead curriculum.
Your child’s welfare and your peace of mind is most important to us. We provide a warm, loving, home-from-home environment, where each child is treated with respect and will develop and learn as individuals while feeling safe and secure.
The 4 programme areas of this strand are outlined below;
1) Early Years positions – Full Time and Part Time

3) Early Years Drop In Service

Here at FamiliBase we provide a play based emergent curriculum that is guided and influenced by Aistear, our national Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. Our qualified team implement the curriculum in a way that is dedicated to the holistic development of each child.
We recognise each child as an individual and strive to include children in the planning and delivering of our curriculum. Our play based emergent curriculum permits learning that arises from children’s interests.
These interests are then guided by our practitioner’s intentional teaching to create educational and fun learning experiences.
Research shows that the first five years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shapes children’s future health, happiness, growth, development, learning achievements and create a sense of belonging in the family, the community, and in life in general.
Our curriculum allows each child to become a strong and independent learner and with our high quality of early education and care we are giving each child the opportunity to develop and thrive in their early years.
To provide challenging and enjoyable experiences so that all children can grow and develop as competent and confident learners within loving and nurturing relationships with others.
To improve the overall quality of early childhood settings for children and families.
