Welcome to CJ's

We would like to welcome you and your child to CJ’s Playgroup, a well established childcare facility in the Parish of Glasthule.

Since 2008 the playgroup has been ever present in the St Joseph’s Parish Centre. Both managers, Caroline Murphy and Barbara Byrne are FETAC Level 6 accredited and the rest of the staff are all a minimum of FETAC Level 5 accredited. One member also has Links accreditation for children with special needs. The facility has obtained a number of awards including a Siolta Award (for Excellence in Childcare) and participates in the Buntas Programme, which promotes healthy exercise for children. Our aim is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for each child and their family.

The playgroup runs a curriculum that follows the ECCE programme and has developed extracurricular activities such as Road Safety, a much loved Christmas Nativity Play and an annual visit to Glenroe Farm.

Your child is entitled to their free preschool ECCE Scheme when they reach the age of three and in accordance with the scheme policies on dates of entry.

CJ’s runs a sessional services, from 9.00am to 12.30pm. This is a playgroup for children between two years, six months and five years of age.
