Dublin West St Marys

Our Service

Opening in September 2016, St Mary's is a newly opened community based childcare service which is located on the grounds of St Marys National School, on Brancroft Ave, Greenhills road, Tallaght.

We have two large rooms which accommodate the children attending our pre-school and after school service. The service is ideally located for families who require afterschool care for their children who attend St Marys N.S and also an excellent choice for transition into primary school from preschool.


Opening Hours

The service operates from 9am to 4pm daily offering morning sessions from 9am – 12pm and afterschool care until 4pm. We are currently enrolling for 2017 offering full day, pre-school and afterschool care. 

We offer places under the following schemes:

  • ECCE (Early Childhood, Care and Education)
  • CCS (Community Childcare Subvention)
  • CETS (Childcare, Education and Training Scheme)
  • CEC (Community Employment Childcare Programme)
  • ASCC (Afterschool Childcare Programme)
Remember to check your entitlements to a free year of childcare (ECCE scheme) or reduced rates (CCS scheme) if you are in receipt of a social welfare benefit.
If in doubt, contact the South Dublin County Childcare Committee, the local social welfare office, give one of our Centre’s a call or drop in and we will do our best to advise you. All the relevant contact numbers are in the “Contact us” section.

Our Staff

St Mary's is staffed by a team of 3 fulltime workers and as demand increases recruitment needs will be met.  All our staff are fully qualified (minimum level FETAC level 5).
