Controversial childcare chain posts job ads despite closure order

Controversial childcare chain posts job ads despite closure order

Controversial creche chain Hyde and Seek has posted two job advertisements in the last week


A chain of controversial Dublin creches has posted two advertisements looking for staff, despite being ordered to close its four branches last year.

Hyde & Seek Childcare, which has locations in Drumcondra, Glasnevin and the city centre, came under fire when it was the subject of an RTÉ Investigates programme last year.

Last November, Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, ordered the creches’ four branches to close by December 31. The creche chain and two of its directors have commenced an appeal against their deregistration, which has been adjourned, meaning the creches can stay open pending the outcome of the appeal.

However, last week, Hyde & Seek posted two job ads on jobs.ie — one for Early Years Practitioners and one for Montessori teachers. On the posting, the creche described themselves as “quality day-care in a happy and safe environment, where everyone is valued, respected and encouraged to do their best.”

The company is due to stand trial for regulatory offences under the Child Care Act.
