About us


Naomi's Creche

Naomi’s Creche was founded in 1999. We have been located in Sli Gheal, Knocknacarra since 2004. We are a purpose built creche on ground level with spacious rooms and an adjacent garden area. To ensure the safety of all children and Early Years Practitioners, each room is installed with security cameras. We create a warm cosy facility for children, Early Years Practitioners and parents .

Our main entrance door is operated by an intercom doorbell. The reception area displays our visitor book which is part of our procedure set out in the early years regulations. We require all persons entering or exiting Naomi’s Creche to sign in and out of the visitor’s book.

Montessori/ECCE Scheme

Montessori/ECCE Scheme is a child centred approach. The children develop independence through choices in their own learning. This allows them to reach their full potential by working at their own pace.

Playroom Area

The Playroom area consists of activities that are child lead which are individual or group-based play. This approach develops their own skills to enhance their identity and build positive relationships.


TinyTots focus is working in partnership with Families which is in the best interest for the development of the child.

Garden Area

The garden area is situated to the rear of the building with a non-slip, safe surface accompanied with grass area and outdoor equipment to enhance children’s physical development.


Naomi's Creche works in conjunction with Pobal, Galway City and Childcare Committee and TULSA to ensure we are providing the best possible care and education for children. We are also members of Early Childhood Ireland.

Why we are different?


Promote opportunities for exploration play whereby children can make sense of the world around them


Encouraging the sharing of thoughts, ideas, feelings and experiences in a variety of ways


Supporting each child’s health, happiness and confidence throughout their journey in the creche

Identity & Belonging

Developing children to have a positive sense of who they are, feeling that they are valued and respected

Early Years Practitioners

Our qualified and dedicated Early Years Practitioners help the children to become successful learners, confident individuals and build positive relationships with others in a home-from-home environment. We work in partnership with parents, by communicating and sharing information on a daily basis.

National Childcare Scheme

The creche supports the National Childcare Scheme, which aims to improve children’s outcomes, support lifelong learning and reduce the cost of quality childcare for families across Ireland. Link: https//ncs.gov.ie

ECCE Scheme

The Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Scheme is also offered. This scheme provides two free years of early childhood care and education for children at preschool age and continues until they transfer to primary school.
