Who we are

Balbriggan Community Childcare opened its doors on September 2009. The ethos of Balbriggan Community Childcare Group Ltd is to deliver quality affordable childcare to all in the community. The organisation is not-for-profit, therefore childcare fees are kept at the lowest price. The unique factor of a community crèche is the subvention scheme. The building is also unique, the crèche is located in an old thatch cottage that dates back to the 17th century, and it creates a magical and homely environment.

We offer childcare for children from 12 months to 12 years. We provide a safe and fun environment and home cooked meals. Our facility is run by a board of management and a Childcare Coordinator.
