Company Overview

Charleville Child & Family Education Centre is a community based service located in the heart of Charleville town. Our Centre developed over the past two decades. The need for early intervention, equal opportunity and adult career pathways became abundantly obvious. Voluntary / Statutory liaison through Charleville & District Community Enterprise CLG. purchased the Broad Street site in September 1997. With wide-ranging financial support and much hard work, our company proudly opened the Community Childcare Services on February 12th 2001. This comprehensive venue is a 'Centre Of Excellence' promoting child and family well-being. This centre offers opportunity to all age groups through the expertise of qualified staff. Charity number CHY15545.
