Sisters Marie and Bernice opened Giggles in 2002 and in Passage West 2006. During these 11 years we have gone from strength to strength. With Marie’s banking and Montessori back ground, Bernice’s years’ of experience with adults and children with learning disabilities, we have developed this family business. As parents ourselves we saw the lack of childcare facilities in rural settings, and saw a need for a full day childcare facility in the ‘country . Giggles was initially purpose built in 2002 and due to demand for our high quality service, we extended the building in 2005. Consequently we have a facility with a unique character, allowing for structure throughout the day as well as variety and stimulation for the children.
Giggles is situated on the Crossbarry road between Bandon and Cork City with easy access to work places such as MSD, EMC Eli Lilly and St. Patrick’s (Brother’s of Charity). It is also convenient to surrounding villages and towns i.e. Innishannon, Ballincollig and Carrigaline.
