Our Athlone Childcare facility opened in 2004 is designed and built to the highest international standards and has received the Excellence Ireland Quality Associations standard.
Busy Kids Athlone has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and around the central concourse there is a range of rooms where children of various ages can play and learn in a comfortable, clean and safe environment. The first room you meet here is a wonderful baby room full of brightness and colour and happy smiling faces. Next is our wobblers and toddlers area and again these areas are a hive of activity and fun where all manner of development and stimulation is in progress.
This is a two story building with state of the art playrooms, quiet rooms, ECCE classrooms and homework rooms on the second floor. These are all furnished to a high standard, equipped with a variety of toys and equipment.
Busy Kids also has an outdoor soft surface playground where younger and older children play in a safe and stimulating outdoor space. Closed circuit television operates throughout to ensure children’s safety and also reassuring parents especially while their children are settling into our childcare facility.
All staff are trained in First Aid, Moving and Lifting, Child Protection, Risk Assessment and all hold a recognised qualification in childcare.
An individual care plan for each child is in operation where the daily progress and events that relates to that child is recorded and is available for parents to view.
There is always a local doctor on call.
Busy Kids also operates a supervised school drop off and collection service, which takes some of the stress out of the working parent’s day. Children are given a helping hand with their homework.
We also offer extra activities by outside agencies such as gymboree, stretch and grow show kids speech and drama, these are subject to demand.
