Welcome

Westmeath County Childcare Committee CLG

We are here to help!

We support the development of a quality early childhood care and education sector throughout Westmeath. We work with home based Childminders, providing information and advice on setting up a Childminding service. And we work with parents and families to provide support and advice in sourcing the best possible early learning and care solution to meet their family's needs. We are the first point of contact for anyone seeking advice, information or support in relation to early childhood care and education within Westmeath County.
