T.T. Childcare Ltd, Finn Community Childcare Centre, first opened its doors in September 2007. The facility caters for children aged 0 -12 years providing a variety of services including full day care, playschool (free preschool year) and afterschools. As the centre is a non profit making organisation the centre aims to provide affordable quality childcare in the twin towns, regardless of a child’s background. This is supported through the current subvention scheme in place and the provision of the free pre-school place under the Dept of Youth and family.

Early childhood is a significant and distinct time in life that must be nurtured, respected, valued and supported in its own right. The physical environment of the young child has a direct impact on her/

his well-being, learning and development. Every child needs and has the right to positive experiences in early childhood. As with every other phase in life, positive supports and adequate resources are necessary to make the most of this period. Play is central to the well being, development and learning of the young child. The centre uses the play based, balanced and stimulating Aistear Curriculum which surrounds four main themes: Well Being, Identity and Belonging , Communication, Exploring and Thinking.
