Welcome to Ready Steady Play!

Ready Steady Play now operate the National Child Care Scheme

You can now get subsidised childcare with us for children age 2 to 10 - they play while you shop!

Register with  - then choose "Ready Steady Play" to be awarded the subsidy. 

We are first and foremost a Play Centre and encourage free play, role play and social skills amongst children. We mind your children while you shop, grab a coffee, have your hair done, nails done, visit the cinema, the list is endless! Happy Shopping!

Relax & enjoy your shopping - Knowing your children are having fun in our shopping centre drop in crèches!

Our staff are all trained in first aid and have experience and qualifications in childcare. We do not have a high turnover of staff so your children are most likely to see the same staff members each time they come to visit us, this builds a secure happy environment for your child and you can be comfortable in the knowledge that your child is well cared for while you relax and shop.

We are in an open plan room, this ensures that 'what you see is what you get', so both parents and staff can see at a glance the happy environment your children are playing in.

ALL staff are Garda Vetted which is required by law. We are a member of Early Childhood Ireland, who keep us informed and up to date on all aspects of childcare.

We love and value feedback and comments from all our customers. Without you and your little people we would not be in business! A big thank you to everyone who avails of our service, its very much appreciated. Anything you would like to say to us please just let us know.
