Mother Hubbards opened first in November 1996 in Dublin. Peter & Karen McGovern own Mother Hubbards and Karen runs the Four Centre’s, two in Dublin and two in Navan. We care for almost two hundred children between full day care, part time care and after-school children.

There is a Mangement System in place. There is a Area Manager who is responsible for all the centre’s compliance with the HSE Regulations, Recruitment and Enrolments. Each centre then has a manager in place to run the day to day activities of the centre.
