Bray People - - News -

THE FIRST chil­dren to avail of a new com­mu­nity child­care ser­vice ar­rived on Mon­day morn­ing at the newly re­fur­bished ‘Fun Dayz,’ which re­places the old com­mu­nity play­group on Prince of Wales Ter­race.

This par­tic­u­lar pro­gramme has a montes­sori teach­ing method in the morn­ings for chil­dren aged 2 – 5. Seven lit­tle boys and girls started there on Mon­day with a fur­ther three kids arriving in the af­ter­noon for the af­ter school club for chil­dren aged 5 – 8.

The ca­pac­ity for the morn­ing ses­sion, which runs from 8.45 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. is 25, while 15 chil­dren can at­tend in the af­ter­noon from 1.30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Or­gan­is­ers hope to build up the num­ber of chil­dren com­ing along over the course of the next few weeks.

The new fa­cil­ity is sub­sidised to as­sist par­ents on so­cial wel­fare or at­tend­ing Fas cour­ses. The full cost be­fore any ben­e­fits are taken in to con­sid­er­a­tion is € 65 per week for the morn­ing ses­sion and € 80 per week for the af­ter­noon ses­sion.

Man­ager Teresa Grant said that there is a new heat­ing sys­tem in place, toi­lets for chil­dren and a bright out­door space for play­ing.

Fun Dayz is now open for applications from fam­i­lies liv­ing in the Bray area. Pri­ori­ti­sa­tion of places, and fee lev­els, will be de­cided by a re­fer­ral com­mit­tee. The com­mit­tee’s de­ci­sions will be based on the cir­cum­stances of each in­di­vid­ual fam­ily, re­fer­rals by agen­cies where ap­pro­pri­ate, and date of ap­pli­ca­tion.

If you want to find out more or get an ap­pli­ca­tion form, con­tact the Man­ager, Teresa Grant, on (087) 7627709.
