Smart Start Quality Award

Macroom FRC received the Smart Start Quality Award in 2018.

This is a quality programme operated through the National Childhood Network and supported by the HSE. It focuses on Macroom Family Resource Centre becoming a Health Ireland Pre-school Service.
Staff in Macroom FRC have already undertaken training in this programme and we hope to roll it out over the coming months.

This Programme involved some major changes for our staff who took it in their stride. The preparation for the programme was carried out over a twelve month period by our senior staff prior to launching the programme in June 2018.


The main focus of the programme will involve working with Parents & Children on:

• Health Promotion
• Oral Health
• Nutrition
• Health & Safety
• Physical Activity
• Emotional Well-being
