ARC Family Resource Centre based in Raheen has three childcare centres one in Raheen and the other two in Adamstown & Rathgarogue, each providing professional and extensive developmental and educational opportunities to the children in a safe and caring environment. The Centres have adopted Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework and Síolta, The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education to ensure the highest standard possible within the centres.

The aim of ARC Family Resource Childcare Centres is to provide a range of high quality, affordable and accessible childcare options to meet the needs of parents and their children in a safe, friendly and child-centred environment, where priority is given to the needs and best interests of the child.

Each child is respected as an individual regardless of age, gender, race, disability, social status or religious beliefs. Each child is offered equal opportunities to enable full participation of every child in all activities.
