We have won a few awards along the way but that is not our motivation.
Some of the awards we have picked up are mentioned below.
We are delighted that the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment has chosen our garden and afterschool plan as an example of best practice. It was a great honour to be approached by a government accredited organisation. The garden will be visited by pre-schools and afterschools nationwide who want to observe best practice in action.
Our After-School club [Stay and Play] were delighted when we were chosen by Eircom to receive their Digital Boost prize. The prize consists of a custom built app to help us organise the collection of afterschoolers. Eircom were impressed at the level of service and flexability offered to our parents and took a great interest in our service. Stay and Play are now the only service in Ireland with a custom built app.
