Have my son in treehouse since Sept and so far he seems very happy there. Don't know how it compares to Linda's as I didn't check them out as they weren't that open to part time hours. He has become very sociable from being at Treehouse. I would definitely recommend it.

For the ones in Treehouse, don't you see their small garden as a problem? Do you know how often the kids are taken outside?

Hi Benson, trying to get a handle myself on what's available in the area. How did you get on in the end?

Hi StarGazer, there are 2 creches open in Donabate currently Linda's ( which is always full so you might need to go on a waiting list) but gets good reviews and Treehouse, there is another opening in Beresford in Jan so you might get a place in there now. We put our son in the Treehouse but I don't recommend it for a number of personal reasons. If you can't get a place in any in Donabate then you may want to look further afield we looked in Swords there are a number of them so if you need names of any just let me know.

Anyone could give me the names of any creches in the area and Swords which might be still available ..as I was left with no places for 2 kids... My children were suppose to start one of the most recommended in the area early September but suddenly I was told they couldn't hold on those places!! We lost them.. I can't believe how could it happened... But anyway I'm bit desperate now and the worst thing we are on holidays at the moment...

Any advise would be appreciated..
I specifically need creche... No childminder nor au pair...
Thanks

Don't know the name of it but how about the place beside the Travel agents on the Main Street? Used to be Irene's Angels Montesorri but think it's run as a creche now?

Hi the one in the village is called donabate kids and is a montessorri and after school only. When I was looking there are a few in Swords with good recommendations Oaklands, TLC, kids Inc and Tiglin you could try some of them it's very stressful I was in the same boat as you good luck.

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a creche that has a place available from October 2019 onwards. Does anyone know if there are any options other than Treehouse that will take under-2 year olds? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know if/when any new Creches are due to be opened in the area ?

It really is mental trying to get a place anywhere right now.

Thanks in advance,

Hi everyone.

Really struggling to get a creche place (aren't we all)

Can I please hear off any parents or past parents who sent there child to TreeHouse, I am in two minds based on a few things and would love some first hand experience,

Thanks

Hi, I’d be interested to hear some views too as am also struggling. I went to view it and wasn’t convinced to be honest so have put their names down in a crèche in swords but obviously Donabate would be a lot more convenient.

Thanks

I have my little girl in Treehouse and she is really happy there. She goes in happily in the morning & when I collect her she’s either up on one of the girls knees playing or outside playing but there isn’t a bother on her. She’s a different child from when she started there a few months ago. The girls are great. I have to say I was very stressed sending her to Treehouse & had a lot of sleepless nights about it as people had given it a very bad rep (a lot of which had never even visited the place). As soon as I seen the girl in the baby room interact with my girl I knew she was in good hands. She comes home with new words & little songs every week so I know they are actually doing something with her (something I’d heard didn’t happen). Yes the place is dated & the backyard is small but they have a lot more toys but inside & out now. The newness & all mod cons of a crèche doesn’t mean it’s a good one - just look at the recent crèche scandal on RTÉ. My friend had her kids in Linda’s crèche - it was the Bees knees ... until she moved them elsewhere! So my point is there will always be little things that annoy you with childcare & facilities but if your child is happy you’ll know and that’s the number one priority. You’ll know yourself when you get a feel for a place.

I also had my children in treehouse for many years up until recently and they were so happy there. The staff are lovely, yes it really needs an update and you won't get the unnecessary showiness (dare I say fakeness) of newer creches such as roots and wings, but it's a good creche with decent girls. My kids learned so much and looked forward to it every day.

Other than needing a face-lift why does it have a bad reputation?
