Early Years (Childcare)


Hillview Resource Centre provides a quality community childcare service, Rascals (Play Group) and Ramblers (Preschool) for children aged 18 months to school age across two sites in the Hillview Estate. The services are staffed by qualified Early Years Practitioners (EYP’s) and our Early Years & Family Support Coordinator.

We work to an Aistear model of curriculum development and have a range of age appropriate play and educational resources; Siolta quality standards underpin all our work across the service.

All permanent staff are completing QQI Level 6 (Hillview’s minimum qualification) in Childcare and QQI Level 8 (Honours Degree) in Early Childhood Education. Rascals caters for a maximum of 10 children, Ramblers caters for up to 16 children and there are qualified Room Leaders in each setting who can liaise with parents and direct staff.

We offer Community Childcare Subvention (CCS) Scheme and the Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE), the free preschool year (38 weeks only) over two years from September 2017. Our service is open between 9am to 1pm (9am to 12 noon for ECCE), five days a week.

For general information about Hillview’s Early Years Service contact Storm Pyper-O’Neill, Early Years & Family Support Coordinator on 01 296 5025 or email childcare@hillviewrc.ie.

Forms for 2018 ECCE & CCS terms will be available from this section of our website over the summer.
