About WeeCare


At Wee Care we believe that the first years of a child's life are fundamentally important. These are the cornerstone years that shape a child's future.

We believe that children grow, learn and develop rapidly when they receive love, warmth, attention, encouragement, mental stimulation and nutritious well-balanced meals, with this in mind we promote in all of our nurseries:

  • a happy, fun-loving and relaxed atmosphere
  • a warm, loving, safe and caring environment
  • the use of positive language and behaviour at all times
  • dedicated, professional, long-term and highly qualified staff
  • healthy eating
  • the creation of a home from home-like environment
  • flexibility in childcare options
  • equality, irrespective of gender, race, religion or disability

Wee Care Nursery Schools Dublin

In 1994 Wee Care ventured south of the border and opened a nursery, Montessori and afterschool club, at Windsor house Monkstown.

Wee Care was opened with the same philosophy as the other branches with immediate success. Following a period of consolidation in 2008 Wee Care won the contract to provide childcare for RTE at its Donnybrook site.

Wee Care goes from strength to strength, remains under the same family ownership and is always working to improve the quality of care we provide.

Our attendance options are extremely flexible, and we are willing to work with our parents to meet their needs. We also provide a drop off and school collection service for your convenience. We will care for your child in our afterschool club for the afternoon, providing hot nutritious dinners as well as healthy snacks in an environment which is warm and homely as well as developmentally stimulating.

Each of our facilities are fully approved by the appropriate health boards. With our experience and the high quality of care offered by our professional, dedicated staff, you can trust us to support you in the development of your child as a happy, resilient individual.

Wee Care Day Nurseries Northern Ireland

Wee Care opened its doors in Windsor Ave North, South Belfast in October 1987 as the first privately owned Day Nursery in Belfast. Wee Care was created due to need derived from personal experience and based on the premise that working parents required nurturing, reliable, professional childcare at an affordable price. To this end, a multidisciplinary team was formed whose function was solely the provision of high-quality childcare to all our families.

Demand very quickly exceeded space available, so in September 1988, a second Wee Care Nursery was opened at Kings Road, East Belfast. Expansion followed rapidly with new nurseries in North Belfast (Antrim Road) and East Belfast (North Road). Wee Care was soon covering the main arterial routes into the North, South, and East of Belfast.

In 2014, Wee Care opened its fifth Nursery in Belfast on North Road. Wee Care Toddlers, part of our innovative East Belfast group of nurseries, is located just two doors up from Wee Care Infants at 119 North Road. The East Belfast nurseries have divided their buildings into three different age ranges, which is unique in Northern Ireland. Each setting is designed specifically for their age range, but the three work together as one large nursery to ensure smooth transitions throughout your child’s daycare journey.

In March 2024, Wee Care expanded its reach by acquiring Mulberry Bush, a well-established nursery in Coleraine. This acquisition marks a significant milestone in Wee Care’s growth strategy, allowing us to extend our high-quality childcare services beyond Belfast and into the broader Northern Ireland region. Mulberry Bush, known for its warm and nurturing environment, aligns perfectly with Wee Care's values and commitment to excellence. By integrating Mulberry Bush into our family of nurseries, we are excited to bring our experience, resources, and dedication to even more families.

All our branches have been recognised for excellence in recent childcare awards. Wee Care goes from strength to strength, remains under the same family ownership, and is always working to improve the quality of care.
