Childcare Park West
Our Park West crèche in the Parkwest Retail Plaza, while visible from the M50 motorway, is accessible from a myriad of directions. Primarily the Nangor Road provides commuters exiting the M50 at the Red Cow intersection, access to this centre, and it will also give commuters coming from Clondalkin or Walkinstown coming from other directions. Parkway Ave can give commuters access from Cherry Orchard, Palmerstown and beyond.
Our purpose designed crèche and is bright, airy and spacious with a secure outdoor area which the children can enjoy all year round. Our rooms are all brightly decorated and arranged to offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment with lots of opportunities to enjoy messy play and art activities. There is a wonderful activity street in the middle of the centre which is divided in to three areas – arts and crafts, our home corner area and our physical activity area where the children enjoy music and movement, keep fit and bowling! We also have a broad curriculum which supports each child to learn the skills that they need to develop to become confident, happy children.
Our chef provides a diverse and enticing menu of healthy and nutritious meals and caters for children with special dietary requirements. All meals are freshly cooked on site and local produce is sourced wherever possible. Our menus are changed seasonally and all allergies are catered for. Our chef, William, creates delicious nutritious snacks and meals every day and makes delicious healthy smoothies with the children on Fridays.
We offer part-time and full-time places for babies and children up to 5 years .The centre also offers the ECCE Free Preschool Year and the government funded childcare schemes to support parents who are studying or seeking employment (for more info click here).

The staff are so professional and make us feel that Adam is special. They provide him with love and care and it gives us parents the peace of mind knowing that Adam is safe and secure and is learning to interact with other children of the same age.
I cannot thank Giraffe staff enough for the love and care they have provided not only for my son but for all the children they care for.
