ADAPT’s Early Years Services

PASS Programme [Parental Access to Support Service] Childcare is a vital part of the ADAPT service. We realise that it can be difficult for those with children to access vital services due to childcare issues. Our Crèche facilities give service users the freedom to use all aspects of the service, safe in the knowledge that the
children will be looked after in an appropriate and safe environment.

Our fully qualified Childcare Staff adheres to Síolta (National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education) and facilitates childcare during all our services and in support of other local services, including:

• CTC Pre-Entry GroupChildcare Room
• Siblings Group
• Strengthening Families
• Counselling Sessions
• CTC Step Down Programme
• Family Support

• Drop In
• Complimentary Therapies
• Acupuncture
• Health Promotion/Harm Reduction

Early Years Pre-School Programme
ADAPT provides a Pre-School/Crèche Programme onsite Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 12.45pm. This programme promotes the interests and welfare of the children within the project, family and wider community and childcarecomplies with the TUSLA Early Years Inspectorate.

Safeguarding your Child
ADAPT recTuslaognises that a key element of effective child safeguarding is the development and implementation of a robust Child Protection and Welfare Policy which was reviewed in May 2016 in line with the Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children and Our Duty to Care – The Principles of Good Practice for the Protection of Children and Young People.

We offer the children a safe place where they can be children, play and be happy. It is a space where they can be stimulated in a positive way and build their feelings of self-worth and self-esteem. There are regular day trips and activities throughout the year such as picnics and trips to Dublin Zoo. See a copy of ADAPT’s Child Protection & Welfare Policy here!
