Best of the West 2016
This new initiative was the set up by Belfast Media Group in conjunction with Bank of Ireland, Phoenix Natural Gas, Translink, Belfast Taxis C.I.C. and the Kennedy Centre. It is a celebration of all that is great and good about West Belfast. The general public were invited to cast their votes and we are delighted to be the first recipient of the award in the Best Creche Category.

All Ireland Centre of Excellence
From the outset we were determined to provide the highest quality of care for children and embarked on our journey towards achieving the All Ireland Centre of Excellence Award in December 2009. This is a cross border award in conjunction with “Early Years - the organisation for young people”, (formerly NIPPA) and “The National Children’s Nursery Association”.

Our ultimate goal was to be the first daycare in Belfast to achieve this award. In March 2011 we received our ‘Validation Visit’ and are delighted to report that we were successful in receiving this prestigious award.

In order to ensure that everyone involved in the process was part of the celebration, Siobhán Fitzpatrick (CEO of Early Years) and Councillor Máirtin Ó Muilleoir presented the award to Bronagh & Una during an evening in the nursery. Parents and special invited guests attended the ceremony.

Teresa Heeny, Director of the National Children's Nurseries Association states that:

“For parents seeking good quality day care, this Award is a mark of the highest standards. The Award recognises that quality early years experiences are vital to the health and development of young children. We believe that receiving the Award is not the final step in the process, but the first step!”
During her recent visit to Aisling Daycare, Siobhán Fitzpatrick, Chief Executive Officer of Early Years addressed parents and congratulated the team:

“You can feel the quality oozing out of every space of Aisling Daycare as well as the commitment out of all of the staff. As parents, you must feel great pride and indeed satisfaction that your children are in the best nursery in Belfast. We are proud that Aisling Daycare is a member of our organisation!”
We are extremely delighted and proud to have achieved this prestigious award. As owner managers we feel that it is recognition for the quality of care, the attention to detail, the celebration of each child and their family and it is an award that will be shared and celebrated by everyone who has a part to play in Aisling Daycare.
