Page One Childcare

our story

Established in 2021, Page One focuses on providing a new, fresh approach to delivering exceptional levels of educational care for children in early years settings. In our purpose-built, modern facilities, we adopt child-centred educational and social methods including Montessori and intergenerational activities. These are proven methods designed to give your child the best possible start on their journey through life. Our team of dedicated and talented carers is committed to making a real difference to the education and wellbeing of children who attend Page One. Each and every staff member has been carefully selected for their extraordinary achievements both academically and personally, their vast experience, and their compassionate attitude towards working with children. All members of our team are Garda vetted and hold a minimum QQI level 5 childcare or Level 7/8 Early Childhood Education & Care (BA).


Our flagship childcare facility is also introducing a Scandinavian model that encourages intergenerational activities between residents of Aperee Living Glanmire and Page One. In children, the benefits of intergenerational activities have been proven to include improved verbal communication, enhanced self-esteem, problem solving and teamwork. Students at Page One will visit residents at Aperee Living for arts and crafts, nature walks and gardening, baking, storytelling, board games and dance classes. Activities will be supervised, structured and will follow all national guidelines at all times. Our team receive up to date training in the following:

  • Pediatric First Aid
  • General First Aid
  • Aistear Curriculum
  • Supporting Anxious Children
  • Manual Handling
  • Food Safety
  • Child Safeguarding
  • Infection Control
  • Effective Room Leadership

Page One also has a full-time nurse onsite for any health issues.
