Preparing your child for their ECCE place

Grovelands Childcare Plus

Grovelands Childcare is a family run multi-award winning early education centre nurturing children from 3 months to preschool and afterschool.

With more than 26 years experience caring for thousands of children in Tullamore, Athlone and Mullingar, we know what works when it comes to nurturing your child’s wellbeing, development and learning.

We have developed our very own ‘brand’ of quality childcare and early education, where every new learning experience a child enjoys builds on the previous one and where all our children’s individual needs are taken into account.

Our team are passionate about their work and love what they do, and we believe it shows in our award winning interactions and environments indoor and out.

We make it a priority to make sure each of our pre-school children are more than ready for Primary School. So, when your child leaves us to go to ‘big school’ you can rest assured they will be confident and competent in their abilities and comfortable in social settings which will allow them to shine in the classroom and beyond.

Our ECCE programme is filling fast for September 2019 and we are now taking pre-bookings for all age groups. Changes to the ECCE scheme in the last budget now mean that there is only one entry point to the scheme in September. The changes made also see children able to enter the scheme from 2 years 8 months.

Choosing whom to entrust your child to in their formative years may be one of the most important decisions you make for your child.  By trusting Grovelands Childcare you will discover how important a quality preschool can be in developing the person they will become in the future.
