Why Sleepy Hollow?

Why choose Sleepy Hollow a

We feel there are a lot of things which set Sleepy Hollow apart in terms of

1. We feel that we aren't just childcare providers are role is much much more. We see ourselves as early years educators and playwork specialists as well as being carers. We want to learn from the children in our care and take their interests and development to ensure that we are
extending that as far as we possibly can. We provide a very rich and varied curriculum for the children in our care.
2. Our staff all get up to three hours out of rooms each week to work on recording milestones andplanning the curriculum to expand the development of the children in their group.
3. We use NurseryPal which offers parents real time feedback on what their children are
doing each day in our day nursery setting.
4. Bronagh and Diane are qualified to deliver NVQ in both Playwork and Childcare to Level 5 and we offer a unique training programme through People 1st. We are the only childcare company in Northern Ireland to offer this. We firmly believe if we have highly training, motivated staff we will deliver the best possible service to meet the needs of the children in our care. We see
CPD as very important in our settings and have gained Investors in People accreditation which recognises this.
5. We are an All Ireland Centre of Excellence accredited setting. This is only awarded to one or two settings in the whole of Ireland each year and runs for a three year period. We attained our accreditation in 2014 and are aiming to renew it in early 2017. It is awarded by Early Years NI and Early Childhood - its a year long process of preparing our portfolio and finishes with a two day inspection by industry specialists. We are extremely proud of this award!

Day Nursery - news

Nursery spaces :- we have limited availability in our day nursery. Telephone or email Bronagh to arrange a viewing or pop out to visit on spec (we cannot offer viewings over lunch/sleep time 11.30-2.30 so would advise you to call outside of these times). Bronagh is happy to provide quotes for any combination of days and we can offer family discounts for full time parents which arent reflected in our price lists. We also offer afterschools collect to most schools in the vicinty.  In Crumlin we are lucky that we are in the outskirts of Belfast and therefore generally childcare costs as in most suburbs are much cheaper than the County Antrim Average.  The annual cost of childcare survey shows that the average cost of childcare in County Antrim was £174 per week in 2016.  It is expected that this figure has risen since then and our full time cost in 2017 is 11% less than the average across Co Antrim and almost 20% less than in settings in Belfast.  Whats more we can offer these competitive prices and still ensure that we are at the top of our profession in terms of quality assurance awards which are awarded by the highest bodies in both the early years and Dept of Employment and Learning sector as well as community based awards.

Wraparound care in schools - news

We offer wrap around care in childrens own schools. This not only drives down the cost for parents but it gives us a wonderful and child purpose environment in which to play. We have access to assembly halls, libraries, computer suites, playgrounds etc all of which can give us so much more to develop play opportunities than in a small contained Day Nursery afterschools room. We also are unique in that we only charge for the days parents use and if you don't need us during school holidays - you don't pay - simple! Likewise some parents only use us during holidays so you can just book in when you need us. Our out of school summer  scheme plans can be seen on our website. We have a theme each week and all of our play and trips are linked into this theme.
