Testimonials from Parents
"Our 4 children attended Higgy’s House between 2008 and 2019. I was a full time working mother for most of this and at home also for a few years. Regardless of whether you work or don’t work Higgy’s House is a crèche that will cater for all families. We found the standard of care to be excellent and the staff to be kind and interested in our children. All of our children had great fun and developed so much thanks to Higgy’s House. Their excellent Tusla reports show that this is the best crèche in the Gorey area and I would recommend Higgy’s House to everyone."
Pat and Kate D’Arcy (June 2019)
"In Higgy’s House we are all the same."
"These are the words of my 4 year old son describing Higgy’s House and I couldn’t have put it better myself. 2 of my children have now completed the ECCE scheme, one of which has special needs. The level of inclusion, equality and child led learning in Higgy’s House is second to none and helped both my children grow into confident and happy mini humans. Over the last 3 years all the staff have shared in my families journey full of laughter, compassion, understanding, encouragement, tears and plenty of hugs. We will miss our Higgy’s House family."
Dawn Canavan (June 2019)
"Thank you for taking such great care of Dylan and Ruby throughout their years with you. We know they will never forget all the shows, camps, singing, dancing, cooking and everything else they got up to while there. We always knew they would be loved and looked after to the highest standards. We will miss Higgy’s but will come back to visit their extended family."

"Thank you so much for all your time spent with Cathal and for helping him grow into the smart young boy he now is. We greatly appreciate every single thing you’ve done for Cathal, for giving him such an excellent start in his education, for helping him to feel happy. He loved going to crèche and we will have fond memories of this and how well cared for he was. Your hard work, dedication, patience, kindness and support will always be appreciated. He will miss his teachers and friends so much but hope he gets as much love in his new school."

All 3 of our kids have been in Higgy’s since babies and we have seen the benefits of such a great environment in them over the years as a result of the dedication and care that the whole team have shown. Higgy’s has been a really fun and caring place for our kids to learn and grow over the years and they particularly loved the family feel of the place.
