We are here daily, along with a crèche supervisor and an assistant crèche supervisor in place.

If for any reason management are unavailable the crèche supervisor will take over. If the crèche supervisor is unavailable an assistant crèche supervisor will step up. Lakelands Childcare are registered with Tusla and implement all that is required to run a staff and child happy crèche.


All our staff are trained in Early Years Education and have First Aid Training, Manual Handling, and Food Hygiene Awareness. The staff ensure all the children's needs are met and they are offered a fun filled yet educational learning programme. They often attend childcare up-skilling seminars and workshops to stay updated with current legislation and keep activities and ideas fresh and engaging for the children. We interview and Garda vet all staff and ensure their enthusiasm and passion for childcare is on par with management.
