Welcome to Mini Model Day Care

Welcome to Mini Model Day Care Home Page. We are delighted that you have taken time to look what we have to offer parents and children.

Mini Model Day Care is a purpose built facility in the grounds of Belfast Model School for Girls.

Where Can You Find Us?

You can find us in the grounds of Belfast Model School for Girls. Situated in North Belfast at the top of the Cliftonville Road roundabout in Dunowen Gardens. This travel route offers easy access to greater North Belfast, the town centre and the M2 motorway.

Who Supports Us?

Registered with the Belfast Health and Social Services Trust the day care is also ably supported by a designated link social worker and Early Years Staff Team. All Mini Model early years staff have been vetted under NI Access and Belfast Health and Social Services Trust Child Protection and Safe-Guarding procedures. Staff receive regular updated training in Child-Protection and Safe-Guarding as required under ‘Minimum Standards for Early Years Settings.’ BHSSCT Guidelines.

The day care holds a continuous Belfast City Council Environmental Health 5 star rating and is subject to inspection annually.

Who Are We?

We are an Education Authority provision which is staffed by fully qualified EA employees working in various roles, early years practitioners, EA Catering and EA Clean.  All EA early years staff working in the day care must hold a minimum of CACHE Level 2 in Childcare or a relevant equivalent qualification. The vast majority of staff have qualifications above this requirement.

Expansion In 2016

Due to demand we have recently expanded the Baby Room facilities to increase our enrolment from 12 to 18 full-time baby spaces which are situated over two rooms.

We are also delighted to announce MINI MODEL AFTER-SCHOOLS provision is on offer from September 2016 for children from P1 to P7. This development came from our response to parental requests, as parents using the day care were expressing their needs for childcare from 6 weeks old to post primary transition age.
