Founder Lorraine Cronin chose the name "Scalliwags," a term of endearment in Ireland, to describe children who are confident, fun, vivacious, and curious. She designed the learning space with with a home-away-from-home feel but with the advantages of a center-based program run by experienced professionals.

The Scalliwags team consists of teachers and support staff who have been carefully selected to create and deliver an excellent infant toddler childcare program. The staff are very experienced and highly qualified, but not only that, they all have caring, fun-loving personalities and want to deliver the very best experience to your child, every day.
The program that Scalliwags has created is modeled on care and kindness to others. It delivers a developmentally appropriate curriculum through stories, songs, and play to ensure that your child learns, grows and flourishes in a safe, loving, inspiring environment.

The Scalliwags Infant Toddler Childcare classrooms have been optimally designed to safely nurture your child's overall development. The classrooms have a warm, home-like and friendly atmosphere in order to facilitate a rich learning experience with the aim of encouraging your child to learn and grow at their own pace while they feel safe, comfortable and secure.
The physical, emotional and cognitive well-being of your child is very important to us. Your child will feel safe and secure to actively construct their own knowledge and experiences, every day. Children feel safe and thrive when their days have structure and routine and when the learning process for them is more organic it has more impact and meaning.

Above all, Scalliwags is committed to providing your child with a wonderful, enriching experience in a safe and happy environment.

We keep you connected with your child! Brightwheel is an interactive app used at Scalliwags that enables staff to connect in real-time with parents or guardians.
