Carrickroe Graduations:
Carrickroe Community Childcare’s First Graduation and Blessing Tuesday 25th June 2019 saw the first graduation from the new Carrickroe Community Childcare service. The children all looked fabulous in their graduation gowns and hats and were joined in the celebrations by friends, family and staff. Fr Flanagan attended the Graduation and gave a blessing to the new building, the children, staff and parents. The sun shone bringing that extra sparkle and there was tea and refreshments for everyone after the ceremony. Carrickroe Community Childcare opened its doors for the first time back on 19th February 2018 in one room in the Community Centre with 2 children enrolled and today they are happy to say that there are 42 families currently using the service. Last week they were delighted to welcome Minister Heather Humphries to officially open their new childcare building. Exactly one year ago, planning permission was granted for this new building and the committee acknowledge the contribution made to this project by Monaghan County Council, engineers, Main Contractor Brian Rafferty construction, CE and RSS staff and all the local volunteers, fundraisers and committee members. It must be said that, without funding, this would not have been possible, and they are extremely grateful for the grant aid received from Pobal on behalf of the Department of Youth Affairs and also the funding received locally from Carrickroe Welcome Home Festival Committee. They are conscious too of the support of the parish community and of Truagh Development Association and Blackwater Lifelong Learning Centre. Carrickroe hope in the future to secure more grant aid to extend the service to include a baby and toddler room. They see this as a very important link in the chain for parents to access all their childcare needs in one setting. Ms. Sheenagh Currie principal and all the staff of Deravoy National School have given great support for the new childcare service from the time a seed of an idea was sown and look forward to the graduates joining Deravoy NS each September. The professional childcare staff are made up of Manager Georgina Lally, Deputy Manager, Antoinette McKenna ably assisted by AnnMarie McCaffrey, Lorraine Treanor, Michelle Myers and Lenka Hracova. They will be extremely busy over the next few months settling in to this fine new building, running summer camps, holding open evenings and everything associated with providing an excellent service. Children remember important things and time spent in pre-school help shapes personalities and understanding of the world. Children share many discoveries, make friends and experience new accomplishments and create life-long memories. From the very beginning Monaghan County were always available with help and advice from Breda McKenna, Jennifer McCarney and the staff. Carrickroe Community Childcare encourage parents to look into to the new National Childcare Scheme being rolled out later this year and know that it will generate some financial support to all their parents and carers. They are holding an open evening on Tuesday 16th July to give information and advice on this new scheme. Dates for their Summer Camp which is open to all primary school children are 1st July, 22nd July and 19th August. They have a packed programme each day from 9am – 1pm and encourage you to call and book your place 047 86768. They would like everyone to know that normal childcare service continues to run as usual each day - 50 weeks of the year - from 8am to 6pm.
