Early Years Education Service

Our Community Crèche

North Wall CDP is located on Sheriff Street, in the heart of Dublin’s north inner city. Our Little Treasures Community Crèche has been providing an early education service to local families since 1985.  We have cared for generations of children at our crèche.  Our Little Treasures Community Crèche is open Monday to Friday, 9 am - 5 pm. With a nutritious hot meal at lunchtime.  Our staff also give children healthy food at set times during the day. We are registered with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency.  (Here is a copy of our newest registration certificate, which is valid from January 2023 to January 2026.) 

What does Little Treasures do?

Little Treasures aims to provide a supportive quality service including child entered service which has directly changed the overall development of each child in the most important years of their lives.

Our community crèche provides quality early years’ education to pre-schoolers aged 4 months to 5 years. We provide part-time and full-time places.

We focus on Aistear and Síolta principles to give our children a great start before primary school. See Early Childhood Ireland for more information. Children enjoy a very varied programme of activities in Little Treasures. Here’s just one example of an indoor activity. 

We have also organised music, yoga and movement classes in Little Treasures, and external activities like playground trips, farm and Zoo visits and swimming lessons.
