Glenties Community Playgroup and Afterschool:
If you are thinking of sending your child to our childcare facility this year and you qualify for subvention (reduced payment) then this must be applied for before the end of September this year. Anyone wishing to avail of subvention after September will not have their payments reduced; therefore it is extremely important for parents to register their child at the start of the new term. If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact us on 074-95-51907.
