"We were very undecided between crèche and having a minder. After sending Harry to Kangakare we now tell all parents how amazing it is and recommend it wholeheartedly. Our little boy loves going in everyday and comes home telling us all about his day and his little friends. The app is brilliant and it’s lovely to be able to look in and see what fun activities they’ve got up to during the day. As for the staff we can’t thank them enough, it’s makes it so much easier to leave your children for the day when there’s such lovely girls minding them."
"Returning to work after having each of my children weighed heavily on my heart. As a working Mother I dreaded leaving my babies after Maternity leave and felt sad that I couldn’t nurture them myself. Inevitably the reality was that bills needed to be paid and I needed to find the best alternative for the care of my children. From my first phone call and visit to KangaKare I felt like a weight had been lifted, my first impressions were ‘this is going to be great!’ the building was bright and colourful with lots of glass windows which gives an open feeling. It is always warm and well equipped with toys and activities and there is an immaculate kitchen where all food is freshly prepared. My predominant concerns were my children’s wellbeing, their safety, their happiness, and the potential for them to grow into themselves within a caring and supportive environment. As it turned out all of these things happened and continue to happen for both of my children. I couldn’t be happier or more relieved that I can drop my children off in the morning with a happy heart knowing their needs are met throughout the day in a responsibly run and friendly place."
"Kangakare is the most loving, caring and diligent childcare provider. After having a baby after a ten-year gap I decided to put my baby into creche for one day a week. The care our baby received was second to none. She stayed in KangaKare for five years, so went through every age group and classroom. The advice I got throughout the years is invaluable to both myself my husband and my child. She is now in primary school and the preparation the staff did for such a big transition was just amazing. I cannot recommend this facility highly enough."
"Our daughter started going to KangaKare when she was 1 year old. At the start, we were reluctant to send her so young, but my husband and I had to go back to work. It was the best thing we have ever done for ourselves and our child. She has been thriving since, she is much more sociable and engaged, they have a great routine prepared and we can see all the activities they are developing through an app as same as their nappy and mealtime. But in my opinion the best quality of KangaKare is their transparency. If anything, ever happens to your child they contact you immediately and always ensure to pass on any issue that might have occurred. This is extremely reassuring and comforting knowing your kid is being well looked after. Nonetheless, our daughter loves going to creche, loves being around her friends and her teachers."
"My daughter started playschool in September. Staff is fantastic, very caring. Great communication via the app and in person. I had concerns about my daughter's speech when she was starting, and staff couldn't be more reassuring and helpful. She's come on leaps and bounds since starting. I'm delighted I chose Kangakare and would recommend it to anyone."
"My Son has been attending KangaKare for a year. He started in the room downstairs and moved up to the preschool room.
He loves it, always happy going in and tells us about the activities he does. The Little Vista is a great feature, been able to check in on meals, sleeps and activities during the day. Seeing the photos is nice when you're away from them in work. My son said his teachers are "kind, helpful and the best". He considers them both as his best friends and only has lovely things to say about them. I'd have no hesitation in recommending KangaKare to any parent looking for a home from home and only the very best care."
"I had only heard great things about KangaKare so was delighted when my son got a place! Over his time there he moved through three of the rooms, each of which he loved. He wouldn’t have been the most outgoing or sociable child when he started but the team at KangaKare helped to bring him out of his shell and give him the confidence to be the great little character he is today. Each member of staff that we encountered were so professional, fun and kind, I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Kangakare!"
"We cannot recommend KangaKare more highly. Our first child has been in their care for 4 years now, with our second there almost 2 years. The staff are amazing and have cared for and educated our boys with expertise and passion. KangaKare has played a key role in helping them flourish and reach their potential. As a parent, it’s amazing to have such peace of mind when leaving your children in someone else's care."
"KangaKare is the best run childcare facility by far. Both of my children have attended years apart and they were so happy there. The staff and management are so friendly and professional, and I always felt my children were in the best of hands which is all any parent can wish for. I always recommend Kangakare to family and friends that are looking for childcare and I will genuinely miss it now that my son is going to big school. Thank you so much to all the staff you will be missed!"
"My experience with KangaKare has been second to none. I recommend it to any of my colleagues who wonder what childcare to find for their own children. For me KangaKare has been a home from home, it is a place where my children develop their own early relationships and learn their first social interactions outside of our immediate family. I truly couldn’t be happier. If anyone, like I was, are painstakingly trying to decide what is best for their own children, I can only say that my experience has been wonderful. It has given me tremendous peace of mind, and I can go to work knowing my children are cherished and safe. I am eternally grateful for what you have given my young children in the most impressionable times of their lives. I am so lucky, and I know I made the right decision in sending my two cherubs to KangaKare." My predominant concerns were my children’s wellbeing, their safety, their happiness, and the potential for them to grow into themselves within a caring and supportive environment. As it turned out all of these things happened and continue to happen for both of my children. I couldn’t be happier or more relieved that I can drop my children off in the morning with a happy heart knowing their needs are met throughout the day in a responsibly run and friendly place."
"Kangakare Arklow provides a creative learning environment which enhances the developmental stages of the children attending there. We couldn’t have asked for a better service or a foundation for starting school. Knowing your child was safe and happy provided great peace of mind and this was evident from the feedback from our child and also our observations when onsite for drop offs and collections and events that were put on with the children. The staff were very approachable and friendly and displayed great kindness to the children." My predominant concerns were my children’s wellbeing, their safety, their happiness, and the potential for them to grow into themselves within a caring and supportive environment.

"Having worked many years ago in KangaKare and then enrolling my own little boy I feel I can give a full insight into this warm loving facility. KangaKare brings a fun, loving and nurturing environment for our little people. Staff are well trained and have a genuine love for childcare. Very clean bright spacious rooms for moving round. Great modern equipment provided to help children reach all their educational milestones and loved the outdoor area. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to KangaKare to others. I loved working here and my son loved his time with these lovely people."
"Kangakare have a wonderful staffing team that makes the essence of this childcare service. Facilities are fantastic but like every good service it’s the people that matter. Management are so welcoming and staff treat each child like they are their own. I felt so happy and comfortable leaving my baby in their car."
"I have worked in KangaKare since 2013, I started straight after completing my level 5 and learned so much from the girls who work here. The management are so supportive particularity supporting me when I decided to further my studies. My colleagues are the best group of girls, and they provide a warm, caring, and fun environment not only for the children but for the staff too."
"I have been working in KangaKare since February 2022. KangaKare is a great place to work, and the management team and staff make you feel so welcome from the minute you enter the building. I have made great friendships with all the staff and hope to continue making friends with new incoming staff."
"I am writing this not only as an employee, but also as a parent, of two small children that are attending KangaKare. One whom has flourished into a confident little girl who has started Primary school, and my other little boy who continues to grow, and have lots of fun each and every day. I cannot praise the girls enough, I know my children are well looked after, fulfilled, and happy because of the wonderful staff that make them feel special and care for them. The standard of care is next to none, and they all go above and beyond to make sure each child is happy. It has been so rewarding seeing my two children grow in creche, and it is all thanks to the excellent standards of staff in KangaKare. I have worked here myself for 12 years, first starting off as a student and working my way up to assistant Manager. I really enjoy my role here, it has been so nice to be able to bring my kids to work with me and know they are in safe hands while I do my job. I have always felt supported and encouraged, and it such a pleasure to work alongside such a great group of women. Safe to say, I have made friends for life here – here’s to many more years."
"KangaKare was both a fantastic place to work and also a fantastic setting to send my child in preparation for school. The staff team have a rich and varied wealth of experience in early childhood development. And offer a fantastic service for the children who attend I would highly recommend them."

"I can't say enough great things about my experience with Kangakare Childcare. I'm so proud to be a part of an excellent team where all the staff are so kind, caring, welcoming, friendly, enthusiastic...which makes this place so enjoyable. The management of Kangakare Childcare is always full of support and encouragement towards future development, ongoing training and so many other opportunities. The management is also always here to listen to the staff needs and help. As a member of the staff, I can't recommend Kangakare Childcare enough. This is the 3rd year my son attends Kangakare Childcare and I’m so happy to see he is growing surrounded with so much fun, different activities, and a safe and healthy environment. I have recently asked him- "What did you do today in creche"? his answer was - "I laughed"."
"Kangakare is a very well run Creche by lovely, friendly girls. I loved working there and the care given to the children is second to none. All the staff created special bonds with the children and catered to all their needs. I can’t fault it."
"KangaKare is by far the best Early years’ service one could work for. Our team are open and honest with each other- we are like one big family. There is nothing better feeling than working in a service that you enjoy going in every morning. If you are looking to join the sector whereby regulations are ahead to, and you are not over worked or stressed out - Kangakare is the place for you."
