Kiddiwinkles have six facilities in the Mid ulster area, 4 Childcare Centres and 1 DENI Registered Playgroup. We care for children from 6 wks old to 12 years old.
Our childcare centres are unique we aim to inspire positive early childhood experiences through excellent care and education in a safe, fun-filled natural environment. Our ethos focuses on respect for the children within our care, families or guardians, staff and the community. We offer a calming nuturing environment indoors as well as natural outdoor learning spaces. Our environments are natural and stimulating with open-ended materials where children can engage in real tasks through sensory driven play.
We have a huge emphasis on outdoor play as children learn from, experience and make connections with the natural world around them.The benefits of this are children become strong, healthy and confident life long learners where they develop emotionally, socially, physically and cognitively.
We are passionate about helping children reach their full potential, respecting their individual needs and valuing families. At Kiddiwinkles children will feel a sense of belonging with a voice where they can take ownership of their experiences through decision making, problem solving, exploring, investigating. We promote holistic development where each child is respected as an individual and we focus on their interests and well being to develop learning through play.
Each centre is led by a manager and supported by the Head of services. (Click here to view our Organisation Chart)
