  • DayCare:The New Ross Community Day Care is a licensed 12 space centre serving children aged 18mths-5years, open 5 days/wk 7:30am-5:30pm, located at the New Ross Family Resource Centre.  It was born out of a need in our community for affordable, family centered, quality childcare. It opened its doors, September 2018, guided by our philosophy: By working together, we will build a warm, friendly environment that nurtures and develops your child’s sense of themselves, and those around them.Through play, we will support your child’s learning as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. We believe in building trusting relationships with child and provider to make your child feel more confident and able to explore and learn. We will offer your child the care, comfort, fun and safety they deserve to assure parents their children are in the best of hands. It is our philosophy that the NRCD is an extension of the family unit and an important part of our community.
