We have placed our three children in the care of ballinderreen creche since it opened over 7 years ago. Neither of us are from the area and having such a wonderful place to rely on has meant the world to us. Our kids have always been so well cared for and they enjoy it thoroughly and all the activities they get to participate in. It's like having another set of parents, keep it up.
