Childcare

Our Community Childcare service has evolved from a one-room drop-in service to the largest, longest running, professional childcare establishment in Tipperary Town. Following the Aistear and Siolta national quality and curriculum frameworks, Knockanrawley Childcare provides services on a full-time, part-time and sessional basis to children aged between 1 and 12 years of age.  Services include a toddler room, playgroup room, two pre-school rooms, sensory room, after schools out-of-school services.  To provide quality affordable childcare to our target community, our primary objectives are 1) to empower children through accessible, community-based childcare services where active learning is prioritised in a respectful, play-based environment; 2) to take a proactive partnership approach with families promoting Parental Involvement facilitating the holistic development of the child, and; 3) to provide a childcare service that is owned and managed by the community and for the community that is valued and supported as an inclusive, professional, high quality Centre of Excellence.

 

PARENT & FAMILY SUPPORT

Family Therapy & counselling

The family therapy service exists to assist, in particular, those who are marginalised, who lack social and political power and whose lives have been traumatised by negative individual, familial and institutional experiences. Since its foundation in 1991 the Individual, Couple and Family Therapy Programme utilises narrative reflective practices to facilitate clients to acquire the psychological and relational resources to cope with life’s stresses. Working with families, often in crisis, our team of experienced family therapists and clinical psychologists facilitate families to build sufficient capacity and resilience to function in ways that meet the individual and relational needs of all family members.
