I joined Giraffe as a Toddler group carer in 2010 and have enjoyed working with children of all different age groups. In 2014 I became manager of our centre in Adamstown and feel like a real part of the community. As a mother of 2 boys myself, I understand the importance of nurturing a child’s independent learning at every stage of development. I have completed a level 6 Diploma in Early Childhood Education. Along with my fantastic team here in Adamstown, we create exceptional learning experiences for all the children in our care.

The entire team at Giraffe in Adamstown were fantastic with our son Sam – When we decided to move out of Dublin the only aspect we were concerned with was taking Sam away from so many friends and the wonderful staff in the centre. For us the attention and care provided by the staff was really evident in the early months with Sam and this continued as he moved rooms during his stay, not to mention the send-off he got during his final week.
His physical development, confidence, social skills and overall education while there was fantastic. We freely spoke to other parents in our estate about the quality in Giraffe and of the team there. Sam will miss all of his friends and the carers in Giraffe Adamstown who have been a major positive aspect of his and our lives for over his early years.
