Purple Penguin Creche
At Purple Penguin Child Care, we believe that every child is a unique star, ready to shine bright in their own special way. Our mission is to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where children can learn, grow, and develop to their full potential. We are not just a childcare center; we are a place where imaginations take flight, friendships are formed, and futures are built.
The Purple Penguin Crèche is family owned and operated with the aim to ensure that the children in our care have a happy, safe and stimulating day! To help in this process we work in close partnership with the families and the crèche staff. We only employ qualified childcare staff and we provide them with endless opportunities to advance in different childcare topics as it is the staff that is the most important resource. The crèche has been established to provide high quality standards to the children in our care. We are dedicated to providing an environment which will encourage development by exploration, learning and playing. We use Aistear the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and Siolta The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education.
