Bright Horizons Drogheda is a beautiful, purpose-built child care centre which opened in June 2007. The facilities include spacious, bright classrooms, with low windows to encourage our youngest children to take an interest in the world outside. Our fantastic outdoor area is used by children daily as part of their play and learning development. We offer exceptional care and education for children from babies to school age. The centre offers full and part time care, and a sessional programme for our preschool children. We offer a before and after school programme, including a school drop-off and collection service to Le Cheile and Donacareny schools. The centre runs Out-of-School Camps during the school holidays as part of our CampExplorations programme.
The children’s meals are freshly prepared and cooked on the premises. Our healthy eating programme provides nutritionist-approved menus rich in fresh fruit and vegetables. We do not serve any processed foods and do not add salt or sugar to any of our meals.
The centre is located in the Grange Rath housing estate. It can be easily accessed from the Dublin Road. Take the first turn into the Grange Rath estate after the Southgate Shopping Centre, proceed straight over two roundabouts and the centre is located on the left hand side. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
Bright Horizons has been consistently recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland for the last 4 years by the Great Place to Work Institute.
