26 years of success

Fonthill Lodge Daycare was established in 1989 by Maurice Lynch Snr. & Mary Lynch. Having cared for children for many years, we expanded by opening Fonthill Lodge, Lucan, on the Old Lucan Road. Over the past 25 years this has expanded to become one of the busiest and most loved crèches in the area. The quality of care given to children ranging from 3 months to 12 years has been underpinned by a loyal team of qualified staff and a large purpose built facility with an even larger outdoor play area.

Following the success of the service in Lucan we successfully acquired the tender to operate two crèches for South Dublin County Council in Tallaght and Clondalkin in 2005. Since then we have developed a great reputation as an excellent provider of pre-school and afterschool care for both various public service staff and the local public community.

Maurice Lynch Jnr and Joanne Lynch now both work fulltime in the business, running the day to day services with the help of our qualified and long standing crèche managers and staff.

In 2014 the family business acquired a large site in Clonee village and built a state of the art facility with one of the biggest private play areas to be found in Irish childcare. We opened our doors in July 2014 and have been growing steadily ever since.

We aim to provide a safe, happy environment where children can develop their social, emotional, physical, and educational skills through a play based curriculum in line with Best practices and policies set down by Aistear, Siolta and the HSE.

Above all, your child's welfare and your peace of mind is most important to us. We provide a warm, loving, home-from-home environment, where each child is treated with respect and will develop and learn at their own individual pace while feeling safe and secure.
