Welcome to Scamps & Scholars Childcare.

Welcome to Scamps & Scholars

Killorglin Community Childcare Centre CLG is a modern childcare facility that can cater for children from 6 months – 12 years. We offer infants (6months), Wobblers (1-2 years), Toddlers (2-3 years), Preschools (3-5years) and afterschool services (6-12 years). We are fully insured and registered with TUSLA. We pride ourselves on not only meeting the regulatory standards required but surpassing them to give our customers the experience that they deserve. We are progressive and always looking for ways to improve the service and we have a great partnership with the families that utilise our services. We are a charitable and not for profit organisation which means that all our effort goes into meeting the needs of the children and families that engage our services. It also means that we can provide childcare which is, in a broad sense, quality and affordable childcare.

Scamps & Scholars Kids Talk TV!

Kids Talk TV is our new initiative involving the children of Scamps & Scholars answering the questions of life such as - what’s the worst smell in the world? What colour is the Wind? Who’s the better driver, mum or dad?

3-5 years

Pre-school starts at approximately three years of age. Our trained pre-school carer's develop each child’s reading, writing & numeracy through our extensive curriculum & development programmes but they also look at the “whole child” development which encompasses social, caring & a range of life skills.

What we are about

At Scamps and Scholars we recognise that each child is an individual & we watch this flourish through all their developmental stages of their early years.
In doing this we prepare them with the tools and skills necessary for every day life.
