Reviews of Little Minnows and Little Willows, Ballinteer

Hi, I moved from Ballinteer to Waterford this summer but I just wanted to pass on reviews of the two childcare services I used in the Ballinteer area. We put our boy into Little Minnows when he was one and he was there for two years. It was fine but he was never happy there but of course he was too young at first to be able to communicate in words. He was in Little Willows then for one year - a montessori. They were absolutely excellent. I´m so sorry I didn´t find them the first two years that we needed a place. I just wanted to pass on our recommendation for Little Willows - the staff were amazing, exuding warmth and care for the children and they ran the place very professionally. I hope if any parent is looking for somewhere in that area that they read this. I wish I had this advice when I was first searching but I was a clueless first-time-round-mam!

Thanks for this review - I just happened across it. I was curious about Little Willows and will be looking for a pre-school in the new year.

One of first things for a parent to look at for a preschool/creche is the inspection reports and any reply attached from owners...these are available from pobal maps through tusla website.
Only tiny amount of childminders are inspected by tusla, only those with four or five preschoolers, so view their insurance documents in place as at least your child/ren are in an insured environment.
Read Childminding Ireland and childcare committes websites for what to look for in quality childcare.
