Rathdrum Special Needs Camps At Lilliput Childcare

Lilliput Childcare have operated crèches in the Dublin 18 and Wicklow areas for twenty-five years, during which time we have offered a range of childcare options for babies and children aged three months to twelve years.


During the summer we offer a number of Summer Camps at our state of the art Rathdrum Creche, which sits in a superb rural location with over an acre over outdoor play area alone.  Our Camps have always proved immensely popular and would include activities such as Art & Crafts, Music, Drama, Football, Bouncy Castle, Outdoor Obstacle Course, Bicycle Track with Bicycles and for the children who like to enjoy what nature has to offer we’ve got a Hen Run and Vegetable Patch too.

This year we’re adding to our programme with a number of dedicated Special Needs Camps.


We have decided in addition to our weekly camps to offer a number of camps dedicated to those with special needs, giving them an opportunity for them to make new friends and enjoy a new experience.  Because of our location it’s ideal for a family day out too as we’ve got some of the delights of Wicklow on our doorstep such as Brittas Bay and Avoca.


Lilliput Childcare have staff members who are very passionate about ensuring that children with special needs are given every opportunity to develop and enjoy life to the full.  We provide a hands on service in our wonderful facility (indoor and outdoor) in the beautiful Wicklow countryside and we are certain that children will benefit from the experience and want to come back for more.  Our dedicated camps will run with a staff ratio of one adult to three children.


Ann Marie Marah of Lilliput Childcare has this to say about the new offering at Lilliput Childcare: “Over the past few years we’ve received a number of enquiries in relation to our camps and the suitability for those who may need a little more attention such as those on the Autism spectrum as it would appear that there are few options available which is frustrating for parents and children alike.  We’ve got wonderful facilities here in Rathdrum and our location is the ideal spot for a total break so we’ve decided to offer this programme for summer with which allows children and their families enjoy time out with a difference“.
