The need was long identified for a locally provided child-care facility because of the distances children were travelling in order to avail of pre-school services. An organising committee was formed in November 2006 representing the wider community of Moygownagh and was provided with a site generously donated by Moygownagh GAA and Moygownagh Community Council. Building began in 2007 and it was decided to name the facility Daria's Daycare after Saint Daria - the female patron saint of the parish.
Daria's Daycare, the new pre-school facility opened on May 8th 2008 and equipped with fantastic facilities and committed staff. It currently caters for 12 children in sessional care who range in age from 2yrs 6 months to school age. The daycare is a dedicated play-school staffed with highly-qualified, experienced and dedicated educators who make learning and socially a real joy for the children who attend. There are many learning activities available to the children such as sand and water play, construction, painting and drawing, role-play with dress-up and music-making. It also has a secure outdoor area with fantastic space for bikes and climbing equipment along with access to the indoor hall, stage and outdoor pitches of the adjoining Community Centre.
