About Us

The Land of The Young Childcare

Tir Na Nog Childcare brought new life to an old warehouse in 2003. We spent 19 wonderful years in our first location but decided it was time for an adventure! In August of 2022, we had the opportunity to create a brand new home for Tir Na Nog while still keeping our home-away-from-home experience for our families. 

Tir Na Nog is an Irish tale about a place called “The Land of the Young.” It is a beautiful, whimsical place where everyone is young, happy, and never grows old. 

We welcome children between the ages of 8 weeks and 6 years old, and we have 6 classrooms. Tir Na Nog is open 5 days per week from 7 am until 6 pm, also offering an early pickup option of 3:30 pm. 

Our space is purposefully designed using neutral colors, allowing the children to bring color into the space through their individualized creativity! 

Our goal as a childcare center is to make the children feel comfortable, loved, and cared for while spending the day at Tir Na Nog. As educators, helping children grow and develop in all aspects is truly our passion. 


We pride ourselves in our communication with our families through face-to-face discussions, daily phone calls, online communication, parent and family communication folders, and each classroom having its own private Facebook group for daily information and photos of the children’s day if parents allow!
