3Pugwash Bay childcare is the Northeast’s largest and leading childcare provider. We provide purpose designed childcare facilites where all the children’s needs are specifically catered for.

The owner, Sharon Bell has been involved in childcare for many years now. Our first childcare centre was opened in Annagassan, Co Louth, and due to the support of our customers and our staff we opened another at 12 Oakvale Park, Bay Estate, Dundalk, Co Louth. With the continued support  and our efforts to constantly achieve the highest possible standards, we have grown to a point where we have now opened another two purpose built childcare centres. The first one, in the Loughantarve development in Knockbridge, opened in September 2008, and the second in
the Lis Na Dara development on the Carrick road, Dundalk, Co Louth, opened on January 12th 2009.

4These new centres will compliment our existing centres, and will offer the parents of the greater Dundalk area the type of childcare, that up to now has only been available in the greater Dublin area.

We at Pugwash Bay firmly believe that these types of facilities should be offered to the children and parents of the greater Dundalk area.

All our childcare centres are registered with the appropriate government bodies, both health and education and comply fully with all statutory regulations and requirements. We operate an open door policy of inspection from the relevent health, fire, safety, educational and professional bodies who regulate the industry. We comply with the Childcare Pre School Services Regulations 1996 and 1997 Amendment and the recent ammendments implemented in Spet 2007.

Philosophy / Ethos
8At Pugwash Bay our goal is to provide the highest standard and quality of care, delivered in purpose designed childcare facilities. We apply this ethos to everything we do, from our buildings to our staff. The children in our care are encouraged to learn through their direct experience in a safe and comfortable environment, that provides a sensible balance between flexible and structured routine.

We constantly re evaluate our services to ensure that we offer parents and children a standard of childcare that is second to none.

At Pugwash Bay we believe that learning should be fun, and well designed play activities are an effective way for children to learn, and we combine this with our renowned caring approach, that ensures a warm loving “home from home” environment, WHERE EACH CHILD IS TREATED WITH RESPECT AND IS VALUED AS AN INDIVIDUAL
