StartBright Bawnogue caters for our youngest early learners. From wobblers and toddlers to “graduating” to primary school, we offer a wide range of early learning and childcare solutions for our local families. Within our purpose-built facility, every room has access to a spacious outdoor area, a wonderful extension of our indoor classrooms.

StartBright Bawnogue caters for our youngest early learners.

In StartBright Bawnogue, we cater for children aged 1-5 years. Our rooms and environments are designed to reflect the stages of development and learning of the children within them.

Fiona Sheridan is the lady who keeps the whole show running, and with a team that’s fully committed to early learning, their range of knowledge and experience is second to none.
