Ray of Sunshine Morning and After School Services is an six time award-winning childcare service for primary school children from the age of four to twelve years-old.
Ray of Sunshine was founded in 2015 by Amanda Spiteri, who at the time struggled to find an affordable childcare solution while commuting to Dublin for her work. Amanda understood the need for childcare which was both, affordable and flexible.
Having an onsite child-care facility within the school environment which operates on an ad-hoc basis has opened up so many opportunities for parents and carers who are working or studying, which were not easily available before.
Ray of Sunshine has grown from one location in Wicklow Town to eight locations, employing twenty full-time staff and ten part time staff.
In 2019, Ray of Sunshine opened a further three locations in the greater Wicklow area.
Ray of sunshine has been awarded a Silver Award for best business working with the community at the All-Ireland County Council awards and is accredited as a five-star business.
