Free Childcare Scheme (ECCE)

Busy Bees Creche is a participant in the ECCE (Early Childhood Care & Education) scheme, and also CETS scheme, which allows parents to pursue education and training whilst being subsidized with their childcare costs.

The Early Childhood Care & Education Scheme (ECCE) entitles all children in Ireland between 3yrs 3months and 4yrs 4months on 1st September each year to 1 years free childcare.

At Busy Bees children attending under the ECCE Scheme follow the Montessori curriculum and our Play Based Curriculum, enabling children active learning through play and exploration which allows for creative and critical thinking by the child. 

Children can also attend our Naionrai Class run by FNT recognised Stiurthoiri. This language Immersion is the most effective way of introducing children to a second language and prepares the children for Irish which will be a subject they will learn in Primary School. The children in Naionrai at Busy Bees Loch Bui are accepted into Gaelscoil Osrai as part of their admissions policy for PAISTI san  NAiONRAI.
