Graduation 2023

It's Graduation time at Little Treasures Community Crèche, North Wall CDP.  It took place today, Wednesday 2nd August 2023 at 11am in St. Laurence O'Toole Recreation Centre. This year we have 19 children in the Graduation Class. We'd like to thank the staff for their hard work with the group, helping them to prepare for the Big Day. We wish the children good luck for their new start in September.

The Little Treasures Crèche will reopen on Thursday 10th August.

Meet Kellie this Saturday (29th July)



Local boxing legend, Kellie Harrington, is proud of her community.  This Saturday she's giving back.  From 12-4pm Kellie is hosting a fun day at Aldborough Place, Dublin 1, behind the Five Lamps/Spar.  There will be a Q&A, boxing sessions and pad work for the fans.  Young people who want to spar with Kellie will get their chance from 12-1pm.  Local music, magic and food are also on the menu.  Many thanks to Dublin City Council and the NEIC for staging this event and to our golden Olympic champion too!  See the poster for more details.

Growing our Own Compost

At last - a composter in our community garden.  The children in Little Treasures community crèche are eating even more fresh vegetables and fruit than before, thanks to North Wall CDP's inclusion in the Hot Meals pilot.  The composter will help dispose of peelings and reduce bin charges.  It will also supply rich, home-made  compost for our gardening ladies.

Thank You for the Swim Sessions!

Here's our Little Treasures crew on the last day of swimming classes at Belvedere College pool, Dublin 1 - Tuesday, 11th July.  The classes were a great success 🏊‍♂️🏊‍♀️

A big thank you to the staff for their time and patience. This would not have been possible without funding from Croke Park Community fund so thank you also.  See you in September 🙏

Hot Meals Pilot

In early May, we rolled out a fantastic six-week Hot Meals pilot scheme in the crèche. Children enjoyed delicious hot meals at breakfast and dinner, with a wide selection of fresh veggies, and new fruit and savoury snacks during the day.

Ready, Steady School

Summer is massive in our Little Treasures Community crèche.  The children enjoy special outings, trips to the park and relaxing, sunny play.  This year, 20 children in our pre-school class are also nearing the end of the Ready Steady School program.

Swimming Classes

On Tuesday mornings the children attend their weekly local swim class - towels, floats and swimming costumes at the ready.  Twenty-five children go to the classes, which are held in the Belvedere College S.J. pool, Dublin 1.  Two tutors teach the swim lessons, while staff and volunteer parents help out. 

Team Building Day

The sun shone on our team building day, Friday 26th May! 

It was a happy event, attended by 32 staff members.  It started with the Viking Splash Tour through the streets of Dublin and on the Grand Canal Dock.  Our tour guide was brilliant – funny and informative.
