Wallaroo Playschools were established in 1985, it is a non-profit making and community-oriented organisation delivering a range of childcare services to all children and support to families.
An important aim of Wallaroo Playschool is the sharing of knowledge, skills experiences and enthusiasms – this comes from both adults and children. This is a safe environment to make mistakes, change and grow. Competition is minimised and co-operation encouraged, creativity is fostered and curiosity supported.
Wallaroo creates a supportive environment that encourages children’s capacities for trust, autonomy, initiative, empathy, and self-confidence. It has pioneered diversity and equality in Irish childcare programmes.
New board members are very much welcomed. Skills in chairing meetings or a background in finance would be a huge bonus for Walaroo Playschools.
Board members should believe and encourage the ethos of Walaroo to create a supportive environment that encourages children’s capacities for trust, autonomy, initiative, empathy, and self-confidence, while also continuing the work of pioneering diversity and equality in Irish childcare programmes
