We encourage communication between staff and parents at all times and any issues that parents may be concerned about please don't hesitate to contact your child's room leader to discuss. Private meetings can also arranged if parents would prefer through our Center Manager. We recognise and respect the contribution of parents with staff at Scallywags as through working together to care and educate your child we will provide the best foundation possible for their future. We also have an 'open door' policy where you can visit your child at any time if you so wish.
Scallywags is a Registered Charity (RCN: 20063320). Our community facility is purpose-built to provide areas to play, learn, eat, rest and grow. Our under-flooring heating system and large glass windows provide a healthy, bright, calm space for both children and staff to interact with each other through the process of caring, learning and having fun throughout the day. We are very fortunate to have four outside play areas, including one very large open space which gives the children plenty of scope to run and let off steam.
Rest assured, while your child is entrusted to our care at Scallywags, their safety and security is paramount to us at all times. No individual enters Scallywags without staff consent and approval. Children are signed in and out by individuals designated on your child's registration form only. All our staff are Garda Vetted. Our staff adhere to a very high level of hygiene to ensure a safe, clean environment for your child to prosper in.
