BACK IN BUSINESS New childcare facility resumes plans to reopen at site of Hyde & Seek creche as owner faces lawsuits from angry families

A new childcare facility is opening at the site of a famous creche, and the company is hiring.

Hyde & Seek Tolka Road creche in Dublin has been renamed Tolka Tots and is recruiting.

The creche’s relaunch was delayed after the Irish Sun revealed its new name in January.

Disgraced Find-and-hide Anne Davy, the owner of Tolka childcare, joined Tolka Tots despite being convicted of three violations.

Davy quit as director after we questioned her about a family project.

Tolka Tots postponed its launch after our January story, and a Facebook account promoting the creche’s opening disappeared.

Despite the controversy, the creche is relaunching.

Tolka Tots recently posted job ads.

Creche chiefs said they were “super excited” to “open up soon” and we’re looking for candidates with “a passion for childcare.”

“We want our staff to care for our children well and put their needs first. All candidates will be Garda-vetted and must provide qualifications.

Locals were stunned by the relaunch of the notorious creche last night.

PARENTS’ CONCERNS

One told the Irish Sun, “I’m worried if Anne Davy is involved with this creche.”

“Anne Davy violated childcare regulations. There were shocking practices.

Documents show Hyde & Seek owns Tolka Tots.

Anne, Peter, and Siobhan Davy run Hyde & Seek Childcare Ltd.

CRECHE RENAMED

The Irish Sun asked Anne Davy and Tolka Tots about the new creche, but neither responded.

The day we interviewed Davy, he resigned as director and secretary of Hyde & Seek Childcare Ltd.

Davy was spared jail after being filmed “roughly” handling a toddler at her Tolka Road Hyde & Seek branch.

The 66-year-old was found guilty of violating three childcare regulations and fined €4,000.

Davy “roughly handled” a napping child. On May 8, 2019, she “disrespected” a toddler at her Tolka Road facility.

UNDER-COVER INVESTIGATION

RTE Investigates went undercover to investigate the Dublin pre-care school’s standards.

Anne Davy admitted in January to violating section 19.3 of the Child Care Act 1991 (Early Years Services) Regulations 2016 at her Tolka Road crèche on May 8, 2019.

Davy admitted Shaw Street had insufficient space per child.

On September 11, 2018, 46 children were there; on July 19, 2019, 35. The creche only allowed 32 children.

Judge Anthony Halpin fined Davy €4,000 for his disrespectful treatment of the child.

HIGH COURT CLAIMS

Davy is facing mounting High Court claims from outraged families over alleged breaches of childcare regulations, the Irish Sun can reveal.

We’ve heard that more families have sued Davy, bringing the total to over 30.
