Carryduff Play Care is a non-profit making, registered charity, managed by a committee of parents and situated in mobile classrooms in the grounds of Carryduff Primary School.

We are registered and inspected by Social Services and ETI. We are affiliated to Playboard and The Early Years Organisation.

Our aim is to provide a safe, stimulating play and learning experience accessible to children from all sections of our community regardless of ability, religion or nationality. All children have access to the complete range of materials and activities regardless of gender or disability. This service provides employment for child care workers, and improves the chance of local parents to access work and education opportunities.
