Park Academy Childcare is a pioneering early years education provider based in South Dublin and North Wicklow.

We established Ireland’s first ever purpose-built creche almost thirty years ago. Since then, our childcare has won awards and set standards for international best practice.

We are passionate about helping children discover their innate talents and abilities. Our child-led, play-based emergent learning approach to education ensures children leave for primary school with self-belief, independence, and a lifelong love of learning.

Lifelong learning

At Park Academy Childcare, we recognise that no child learns in exactly the same way. Every child needs the opportunity to follow their own innate guidance, realise their unique talents, and discover their individual self.

This drives Park Academy Childcare’s child-led, play-based emergent learning philosophy. Our goal is for every child to graduate to primary school with
self-belief, happiness, a can-do attitude, and a lifelong love of learning.
