GROVELANDS Childcare Tullamore took part in National Pyjama Day on Friday, March 23 in aid of the Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF), while there was further cause for the celebration at the facility as Grovelands was awarded an All-Ireland Centre of Excellence award by Early Childhood Ireland for the eighth consecutive year at a ceremony in Belfast recently.
The All Ireland Centre of Excellence Awards acknowledges childcare providers who deliver excellent standards of care and early education. Award recipients have achieved excellence in a range of areas including curriculum; health, safety and hygiene; diet and nutrition, and physical environment.
Regina Bushell, Managing Director of Groveland’s Childcare who is celebrating 35 years in the childcare field this year, said, “We are thrilled with this award and the team should be very proud. It is a great accomplishment to be the only childcare provider nationally to retain this honour for eight years.
Grovelands Childcare is a pioneering, successful business that has been in operation for 20 years and currently employs 77 people.
