Who we are
Holy Angels Daycare Centre is the designated pre-school in Carlow for children with special needs from the age of 18 months to 6 years. We have been providing specialized services since 1978. If you would like to read more on the history of the Holy Angels please click here.
I would like to welcome you all to our website and hope you enjoy browsing and find it interesting and helpful.
Over the past 41 years over 500 children have availed of the services at Holy Angels. Every one of these children came with their own special talents and abilities. With the support of a very dedicated team each of these children have grown and developed into individuals we are all very proud of.
At the moment we have 31 children attending Holy Angels. Facilities include: a Hydrotherapy Unit, a Soft Play area, Multi-Sensory room, an Outdoor Play area, a Family Room and 3 Classrooms equipped to a very high standard. However we all know that facilities on their own do not make a successful centre. It is the dedication and committment of staff that makes it successful. I am very lucky as the manager of the Holy Angels to have a wonderful team of staff who give over and above the call of duty at all times and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all sincerely.
I would also like to thank the Board of management who are a constant support to me.
Board of Management:
- Fintan Phelan (Chairperson)

Each member gives their time on a voluntary basis. If I request something for the children, no stone is left unturned to provide it.
I would like to thank the Health Service Executive and the People of Carlow for their constant support.
I would also like to thank the parents of our children both past and present for all their support over the years and look forward to their continued support in the years to come. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has helped and supported us in anyway down through the years and hope for your continued support in the future.
