Its Childs Play at Footprints

Footprints Women’s Centre has just opened an exciting and modern new children’s play area at their premises in Poleglass. The sensory play space features modern play facilities such as wooden wind-chimes, sandpits and natural exploration areas and will provide hours of enjoyment for the children who visit the centre.

The space was funded by the department of Education through the Capital fund. John Duffy, Chair of the Eastern Childcare Partnership noted the significance of this development said,

‘The Eastern Childcare Partnership is delighted that Footprints Women's Centre, in partnership with Colin Sure Start, received this award and achieved this exciting outdoor space for the benefit of local children. The Partnership would wish to acknowledge the commitment of the Department of Education in securing capital funding for early years services in these difficult times and hope that it signifies that the importance of early play and learning experiences are recognised widely across Government.'

The play space will be a welcome oasis for children using the centre, in particular for children with additional support needs. If you would like more information about the Footprints play area please phone the centre on 028 9092 3444.
