Tait House Community Enterprise has a long track record in the childcare industry. Its own crèche facility, located in Southill in Limerick city, was established over 25 years ago and has grown to now employ over 30 staff. Earlier this year the facility announced further expansion plans with 40 additional childcare places added.

Speaking after announcing the Tait House and Bulgaden National School partnership, Tracey Lynch CEO at Tait House said: “We are delighted to be in a position to develop a working relationship with Bulgaden National School and to announce our plans to develop the new Castle Community Childcare service. Tait House has developed a strong reputation in the field of childcare in the Limerick area due to the warm and welcoming nature of all its staff.

As we see the development of new communities across Limerick, and as our population expands there is a rapid need for increased childcare and after-school services in the wider Limerick area. Tait House is well positioned to be able to use our many years of experience to work to help the people of Bulgaden to develop a new Preschool and Afterschool service that we hope will grow to become a key part of their community in years to come”.

Ethel Hyland, Acting Principal of Bulgaden National School said: “The addition of the new Castle Community Childcare service has been hugely welcomed locally. From a parental perspective, childcare has now become one of the most important elements. There has been a growing demand for quality service, one that gives parents peace of mind whilst also providing a safe, friendly environment for children to learn and play”.

We were delighted to be in a position to partner with Tait House, an organisation with many years of experience in the childcare industry. Their advice, guidance and expertise has played a crucial role in bringing our new service in Bulgaden to fruition. We look forward to welcoming their first recruits in The Autumn!”.

The new Castle Community Childcare service will offer free places to children eligible for the ECCE program and will also operate a School-Age Childcare to pupils of national school during school terms.

Application forms can be obtained by phoning Patricia at 061-415340 or emailing [email protected] or by contacting the school [email protected] or members of the parents’ council.
