Award Winning Kilkenny Childcare

At Busy Bees our wish for each child is that they are happy, confident and sociable. To attain this, we encourage all children to reach developmental milestones and gain basic life skills by working under the framework of Aistear and Siolta. Siolta is the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Services and encompasses 16 Quality Standards that all Childcare service should be working towards.

Care Groups

Our focus for the children is on continuity through each stage at busy bees. Designated areas within each room allow children to move through our Centre with ease and familiarity.

The Emergent Curriculum allows children to remain content, interested and involved whilst soaking up a wealth of information while they are at the age that they can.

We provide quality care for:

  • Wobblers & Toddlers
  • Pre-Montessori
  • Montessori
  • Naionrai
  • After School Care
