What is Pop-Up Childcare?

 

Pop-Up Childcare is a site-specific childcare provision, which allows parents to relax and enjoy themselves with the confidence knowing their children are being safely looked after. We typically provide Pop-Up Childcare for community organisations, events, weddings, conferences and other special events. But we do have a package if organisations are needing a venue as well as childcare.

 

We always provide a premium level of childcare on site, allowing the children to play and make new friends under the capable supervision of excellent Harmony-registered childcares.

Did you know?

We are an Award Winning Social Enterprise and the only provider in Northern Ireland of a Pop-Up Childcare service since 2018.

The Mary Ann McCracken Foundation hired Wee Chicks to provide creche services as part of a project that we developed with and for migrant women. Kelly and her team worked with us and provided excellent advice and support, and the children in the creche were extremely well looked after. As Mary Ann McCracken opened a nursery school in the Clifton House almost 200 years ago, and the Wee Chicks staff definitely lived up to Mary Ann’s standards for kindness, knowledge and professionalism – Mary Ann would be proud! “

–  Mary Alice (Mary Ann Clancy, McCracken Foundation, 2023).

“At the Belfast Met ESOL classes in Girdwood, Wee Chicks Fitness provide childcare assistance with an on-site mobile crèche so adult learners can attend English lessons. We are delighted with the service delivered by Wee Chicks and would recommend them to anyone looking for childcare provision. The staff are highly professional and strive to cater their services to all children regardless of their specific needs and cultural background. The standard of their provision is second to none.”
– Ligia Parizzi (Girdwood, Belfast Met, 2023).

How does it work?

 

Our Wee Chicks team can transform any room in under an hour – to provide a fun, safe and stimulating environment for children ranging from 3 months to 12 years. The Pop-Up sessions can run for minimum 2 hours. We will liaise directly with the venue to carry out our own risk assessments initially, ensure public liability insurance, health & safety and all other requirements are met.

 

The success of our Pop-Up Childcare service lies in the experience of our qualified staff, the quality of the toys and the expert organisation of the overall service on the day. We work within the minimum staffing ratios which are outlined below:
