Supporting Families,
Supporting Communities.

Our Organization

We opened in 2002 and work as part of the National Family Resource Centre programme consisting of 121 independent, limited companies offering community-based Family Support in targeted communities.

Working with the community we take our responsibilities very seriously. All our staff, Board Members and volunteers are Garda Vetted. We have a Child Protection Policy and Child Safeguarding Statement in place.


What do we do?

  • The Early Years Service including Preschool and Activity Club.
  • The provision of a Family Support and Counselling service.
  • The Community Health and Referral Project (Linkwork service).
  • The Maria O’Connell Play and Art Therapy Hub.
  • Parent and Toddler groups and Summer Camps.
  • Support groups, education and training opportunities.
  • We also provide regular information talks/events and social meetings.

Community Volunteering

Voluntary activity is an important part of what we do. We have a very vibrant base of volunteers without which we could not operate.



Our son became braver, has learnt more how to co-operate in a group with lots of kids. He has got a great lesson at art, sport, science. The pre-school was the best preparation for big school. I could not imagine a more wonderful pre-school, teachers and management for our son. Thank you so so much.

Our daughter had basic speech, lacked confidence and due to her hypermobility was afraid of taking any risks when it came to gross motor activities. After two years with Early Years, she has become a big independent thinker, has a massive vocabulary and is able to assess risk when climbing, running etc. Your pre-school has helped nurture those skills.

Positive impact, confident and more independent. Fantastic attentive staff.

My child got confidence, independence and skills to socialise and negotiate. I am very happy that both of my children attended pre-school here and the service we received.
