Our Ethos

We at Blackrock Community Playgroup Ltd fully appreciate the importance of providing a comfortable, safe environment for children to learn and grow at their own pace. As such it is our aim to provide a pre-school and early years service to children from all backgrounds, where they can develop all the essential early life skills in a stimulating and creative environment. We are proud to say we have been providing an excellent service for over 30 years.

Blackrock Community Playgroup Ltd aims to provide an affordable childcare service to families in the community. It is a not-for-profit organisation and so fees directly fund costs involved in running the service. We actively promote our policy of involving parents on a daily basis. Being the only community run childcare facility in the Blackrock area also adds to our uniqueness.

We have two fully equipped rooms, each holding a maximum of 16 children. There are two key workers in each room, providing an excellent adult to child ratio. All of our staff current and future are fully garda vetted, as is the law. We are Health Board compliant, and inspected regularly.

We run our playgroup based on the principles of "High Scope", which teaches children to learn through making informed choices. When you leave your child with us you can be confident that they are learning and being cared for in a comfortable, safe setting by professional, qualified staff who have your child's welfare at heart.

We run two grant schemes at Blackrock Community Playgroup.
We are part of the national ECCE scheme. We offer the free pre-school year to all children who register with us and whose birth date falls within the national guidelines for that year. They also must be starting national school the following September.
More details here.
We offer this scheme to lower waged families. A certain percentage of places are available to those on welfare payments. A reduction is also available for people on a low income, and in receipt of a medical/GP card.

For rates of fees payable please inquire directly with playgroup.

Blackrock Community Playgroup ltd is a registered not-for-profit organization. All monies received go directly back in to playgroup to fund the day to day running of same.
What our clients say about us ?

I enjoyed seeing my son enjoy playing, and his social skills improving because he was meeting other children, learning, sharing and having fun.

We are doing the Rainbow Run to raise money for equipment for playgroup. Our Go Fund Me link
