In the beginning...

Ballymore Community Childcare was established in 2000 as a playgroup. It was based in Scoil Eoin Noafa National School Ballymore. The playgroup then moved premises to a room at the Community Centre in Ballymore to facilitate its continuing growth. During this time there was 2 qualified Staff working for the service.  

In 2008 the Board secured funding to develop a purpose-built childcare facility on a site provided by Westmeath County Council in the Market Hill area of Ballymore. In March 2010 we opened our new building providing sessional, part-time and afterschool services

Ballymore Community Childcare today...

Currently we have fourteen highly qualified staff members, including 3 Trainee Childcare Educators on the CE Scheme, an Office Administrator, driver and caretaker.   We cater for over 80 children from Ballymore and the surrounding communities

We have been fully compliant with Tusla since opening.
