About The Hive

About The HiveBusy Bees was founded as a family business in August 1990 with a vision to provide exceptional childcare in a loving environment, with a unique "Home from Home" atmosphere. Busy Bees has expanded over the years enabling us to provide and maintain the highest standards of care & education. We have a purpose built facility to cater (full time and part time) for children aged 3 months to 8 years. We continue to strive to ensure that your child feels safe, secure, loved and most importantly that they have fun.

Childcare today is not a choice of convenience or location; it's about quality, consistency and peace of mind for you and your child. Busy Bees believes in hiring the most educated, professional, caring and qualified staff the industry has to offer. Through our Aistear Síolta Curriculum/Programmes, your child will develop physical, intellectual, language, emotional, spiritual & social skills (P.I.L.E.S.S.). Our philosophy appropriate curriculum will allow your child to grow at his/her own pace. We believe that it is in their play that children show their intelligence at the highest level of which they are capable. Child-directed play opens up new possibilities in thinking and develops the emotional intelligence that makes feelings manageable. It helps a sense of self and relationships with others to deepen.
