Childcare

Little Hands Little Feet - (Day Nursery Belfast | Day Care Belfast | Childcare Belfast)

Derryvolgie House, 73 Malone Road, Belfast BT9 6SB, UK – 028 9066 5037

We recently moved to Belfast and childcare was our biggest concern. We found Little Hands Little Feet and our children have settled well. Large rooms and a great front lawn. Friendly staff and a great overall day nursery!

My daughter has gone to LHLF since she was 11 months old & is about to turn 6 - she now attends their Summer Scheme and Afterschool. She loves going & I have never had a problem with getting her in. The staff are very friendly and highly qualified. They know the children on an individual level so they can address their needs. My daughter has come on amazingly well - she has learnt so much and clearly enjoys it too. The layout of LHLF is fantastic - the nursery building itself sits way back off the road, which means no noise or air pollution from traffic which you get with most other nurseries. They have a huge front lawn providing a safe and secure area for the children to play in - weather permitting :) The location is superb - right in the heart of BT9 - with some of the Belfast's best primary schools on its doorstep. So if your hoping your child attends one of the primary schools in the area - LHLF is the ideal stepping stone!

Kids at BT9 Day Nursery

60 Ulsterville Ave, Belfast BT9 7AQ, UK – 028 9066 5266

Kids@BT9 is a wonderful nursery. It was highly recommended by a friend and our two year old has been going since he was seven months old. It is a warm and caring environment with professional and kind staff. It is reassuring to see how well he is looked after and it is wonderful to see how happy and excited he is to run through the nursery gates each morning. He loves going and sometimes doesn’t want to leave at the end of the day! The location is perfect and has safe off road parking for drop off and collection. All of the meals are freshly prepared on site each day. He is constantly learning new things and we are extremely happy with his social and emotional development. We couldn’t be happier with Kids@BT9.

Kids@BT9 is a well managed, friendly and welcoming day nursery. The staff do an excellent job and genuinely care about the welfare of the children they look after - nothing is too much trouble! Interesting and engaging activities are planned relating to a particular monthly topic or theme and are pitched at an appropriate level depending on the age range. The children also get the opportunity to experience 'messy play' with water, sand, paints, crafts etc. and outdoor play is encouraged whenever possible. Music is a popular pastime too with Joe Jingles coming in to run workshops and singing songs being a daily occurrence. The Junior Preschoolers and Preschoolers learn Spanish with two members of staff who are native speakers and this has been a great success. Meals are varied and healthy with good quality meat being bought in from the local butcher and everything being cooked on site. I honestly couldn't recommend Kids@BT9 highly enough. As a parent you only want what is best for your child and this safe, caring and homely environment really does offer the best quality of care.

Crescent Arts Centre

2-4 University Rd, Belfast BT7 1NH, UK – 028 9024 2338

Plenty of courses in music and dance. Nice meeting place

I didn't try the cafè, but the art centre is nice and has a large choice of art courses. Also here are held many events.

The MAC

10 Exchange Street West, Belfast BT1 2NJ, UK – 028 9023 5053

The Mac is one of Belfast's best arts facilities. You can lunch here, have a meeting, visit excellent exhibitions or enjoy the cafe. The architecture alone is worth a visit and its a wonderful playground to explore. There are two theatres, resident arts companies, studios, rehearsals spaces, a children's creche area and meeting facilities and lockers for your stay if you want to spend time enjoying the visual art galleries. The Arts Centre was over 20 years in the planning and well worth the wait. I often visit here to have business meetings, it is a very relaxed and plenty of quiet spaces to work uninterrupted with great coffee and lunch facilities and FREE WIFI ..... I am an unashamed apple mac user 'table hog' (see review below) but that is what the building is designed for so that it is interactive and accommodating. The arts should never be preserved in aspic in a clinical untouchable environment and the Mac perfectly combines a social space with excellent arts.

Visited the Mac tonight to see Minding Frankie. It was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Brilliantly adapted for the stage and a great performance from both actors . They made me laugh and also brought tears to my eyes in parts. All staff as per usual friendly and helpful and I look foward to my next visit in September for Under the Hawthorn Tree.

Very nice facilities. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Joseph, Tina and Thomas are the best and very accommodating. I really enjoy coming there for fitness and games. Thank you.

Joe and Thomas are extremely nice, helpful and supportive and our volleyball club is growing thanks to them! Everything is always ready and organised, but most importantly it's great to go to training (and games) and feel like you are part of the family, that you belong to that hall.

Ardoyne Community Centre

40 Herbert St, Belfast BT14 7FH, UK – 028 9074 8523

Seems very popular during the day with mums and their kids. There's a newly built play area outside too. Freindly staff. the pace is kept really clean and tidy. I've popped in here a few times during the day. And always been made welcome. The two people working for the Council who start here early in the morning when they don't have too, really look after the place. And the cups of tea are great. Well done.

Welcoming and a lovely set off people, great tea and chat
