For the past 20 years we have supported families and children in Clare through the provision of accessible, affordable, high quality childcare in a warm, caring, safe environment. In particular we pride ourselves in the high standard of our staff training. As a registered FETAC provider all of our staff have access to the most up to date educational training with all of our Classroom Assistants having attained a minimum standard of FETAC Level 5 and Room Leaders a minimum of FETAC Level 6. The creche is HSE approved, is regularly inspected and fully compliant.

We are a child centred organisation helping the children in our care to achieve their full potential.

"A visit to the Clare Family Resource Centre is an inspiring experience - a dedicated team delivering the highest standard of childcare allied to a state of the art premises on a par with the best in Europe."
