It has long been accepted among childcare providers and parents that NCNA members deliver quality daycare. The All Ireland Centre of Excellence Award acknowledges the NCNA/Early Years members who are providing excellent standards of care for children in Ireland.

The All Ireland Centre of Excellence is not a competition. It is a process through which a Nursery improves the quality of the Nursery.

How is a nursery recognised as being an All Ireland Centre of Excellence?

Childcare services who wish to apply for this award undergo a rigorous process of self evaluation with the support of Advisory staff from NCNA or Early Years. They are then visited by NCNA / Early Years staff who are experts in the field of Early Childhood Care and Education to validate that the nursery is operating to the high standard required of an All Ireland Centre of Excellence. Successful applicants will receive “The NCNA/Early Years All Ireland Centre of Excellence Award” for display. The award demonstrates to parents, visitors and members of the public a commitment to quality and success in implementing and maintaining consistently high standards of excellence.
