Our centre opening hours and standard care options have been designed for working parents. Our care options include: Full Time, Part Time Mornings, Part Time Afternoons, Three Full Days, Two Full Days, Sessional Pre School Care and Afterschool care in some of our centres.

At Cocoon Childcare we believe that caring and learning go hand-in-hand.
Our 'Spread Your Wings' Curriculum provides an educational programme from our Baby, Wobbler, Toddler and Pre-school rooms which is followed in all our centres. Many of the activities are designed to develop fine and gross motor skills, language, imagination, emotional and social awareness and are, or course, presented to all children in a fun and play oriented manner. Our carers ensure that each child develops and early love of learning through our activities and materials. All our day care facilities are equipped with the most up-to-date teaching materials for the appropriate age groups. We continually assess and develop our curriculum to ensure our learning objectives are being reached and to ensure that we meet the needs of each child individually.
