Park Academy Childcare

Park Academy Childcare

The Park Academy Childcare developed Ireland’s very first purpose built crèche in 1995 and we continue to “Set the Standard” in Irish childcare today with 8 great locations in Dublin and North Wicklow. A member of Early Childhood Ireland, our award winning crèches are testament to the quality of care that we provide. Great care starts with great people, so we employ only the best for our crèches. High standards in staff care have resulted in a solid reputation that we are proud to uphold. A warm and happy atmosphere greets every visitor to the Park Academy. A family run business, our philosophy has always been – ‘What is best for the child?’ It is this child centred approach that sets our crèches apart.

Our progressive approach has resulted in the creation of our very own OWL Curriculum (‘Our World of Learning’) as well as the specially designed ‘JUMP’ Sports & Fitness programme – just two elements that our children & their parents love! Our approach sets the standard across all our services, whether it’s in our Baby, Pre-school,  or Afterschool rooms or our renowned Summer Camps…

School’s out for summer…it’s time to have some FUN!

We are NOW enrolling for our Summer Camp programme, which runs for the full months of July and August. Our camps cater for children aged 3 – 12 and there are both full and part-time options available.

Each week will have a new and exciting camp theme and all camp activities are based around this. These themes are carefully selected by our Education Coordinators and are specifically tailored to your child’s age and interests. Park Academy’s Summer Camps have something for everyone! For more information on our Summer Camps or to see this year’s themes go to

Children will also enjoy a trip on our ‘Adventure Bus’ each week which will tie in with their Camp theme! From construction to cookery, sports to science, we can guarantee that your child’s day will be packed with fun and stimulation.

The only issue may be convincing them to come home!

Our parents believe that we provide the No.1 summer camp experience. We think that you will agree. Check out our website now to view this year’s themes!

Afterschool care:

Nearly all of our centres operate an Afterschool service which includes school bus collection, supervised homework support and nutritious chef prepared meals. We also provide weekly trips on our ‘Adventure Bus’ which gives us all something to look forward to! Older children adore our ‘Afterschool Club’ and they thrive in this new environment of independence. Once the homework is out of the way they are free to partake in some great Afterschool activities or simply to relax and have a chat with their friends. All Club activities are based on the children’s own personal interests whether that is science or fashion! Our ‘Afterschoolers’ also enjoy weekly sports and music sessions with Coach Eamonn and our resident musician Manu.
