Childcare & Parent - Overview
Welcome to Giraffe Childcare & Early Learning Centres
About Giraffe - Giraffe Childcare & Early Learning Centres is Ireland’s leading provider of quality childcare and Early Years Education for Infants, Toddlers, Pre School/Montessori and After School children. The welfare of the children placed in our care and their parents’ peace of mind is at all times our primary concern.
Our Facilities - Considerable planning and expertise have gone into each Giraffe Centre. All of our buildings are purpose-built to our own specific requirements and provide space for playing, learning, eating, resting and sleeping.
Our Educare Staff - In all our Giraffe centres our Educare staff are our most valuable resource, and the utmost priority is given to ensure that they reach their full potential. As a company, Giraffe ensure that all staff have access to on-going training and development.
Our facility Managers and Deputy Managers are all qualified childcare professionals, with substantial experience in their field, recruited from within the ranks of our existing staff members, or from the wider sector.
We believe that it is only through a highly trained and motivated workforce, that we can deliver the necessary dedication and commitment from our staff to the children entrusted to our care.
Our Parents - At Giraffe we recognise a child’s first educator is the parent. We value the contribution parents have in supporting their child’s learning at home. To ensure that you and your child are getting the most Giraffe’s Early Years REACH program, we like to encourage two - way communication in a variety of different ways.
You are welcome to come in at any time of the day to visit your child. You will receive written and verbal feedback from us as you drop off or collect your child and daily written reports in you’re “My Day At Giraffe” book which enables you to keep constantly informed of your child’s daily activities and progress in learning and development. We also run Parent Educare evenings and give you all our on-going centre news through our regular newsletters.
