• How to Enrol Your Child in a Class?

  • Welcome to Hoopla Childcare, we are operating in Cork and Clonakilty.

    Children are not the people of tomorrow, but people today. They are entitled to be taken seriously. They have a right to be treated by adults with tenderness and respect, as equals. They should be allowed to grow into whoever they were meant to be - the unknown person inside each of them is the hope for the future.
    • Our Nursery

      At Hoopla Childcare we appreciate that leaving your young ones for the first time can be a daunting experience which is why it is our priority to make your child feel as loved and as special to us as they are to you.

    • Settling In

      We understand that as a parent it is your priority to ensure that your child is placed in an environment where they feel safe, secure and happy. We will make sure that your child settles into the nursery at their pace and comfort.

    • The Environment

      At Hoopla Childcare we have designed our nursery environment to encourage our children to participate in stimulating and challenging activities to boost their learning and development.

    • Health & Safety

      The safety of our children at Hoopla Childcare is paramount, and it is our policy that a trained first aider will be on the premises at all times.

    • Our children always feel comfortable and protected in a safe, secure, clean, home from home environment giving parents complete peace of mind.
    • Learning Through Play

      At Hoopla Childcare we have created an environment to encourage all seven areas of learning.

    • Blocks

      Blocks help to develop mathematical, creative and physical skills and also contribute developing a child’s understanding of balance, building and design.

    • All-inclusive Activities

      In addition to offering core activities and outings, Hoopla Childcare also offers all inclusive extra-curricular activities and classes such as Little Kickers, Hip Hop Tots, Jiggle & Jam, Theatre Tots, cooking and language and music preparation classes.

    • Role Play

      Through role play, children explore their developing understanding of the world, and it encourages interaction with other children and adults. It helps to support communication, builds confidence and self-esteem and cooperation.

    • Hoopla Childcare is a perfect place for my daughter to start her schooling experience. It’s welcoming and safe, and my daughter loves being there.
