Our purpose designed crèche has a warm, homely feel and we have an open door for policy for parents and we hold a number of family events throughout the year.The crèche has 9 spacious rooms, all brightly decorated and arranged to offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment. We have a wonderful sensory room for babies and a designated art room which our budding Picassos enjoy every day!
We offer part-time and full time places for babies and children up to 5 years and we also deliver the free pre-school year (ECCE scheme).

I joined Giraffe in 2010 at Giraffe Rathborne as a centre Manager. Since then I managed Celbridge, Stepaside and Blanchardstown before I stepped into my role as manager of our Cherrywood centre in 2016. As well as leading an excellent group of carers in Cherrywood, I lead training sessions for our other centre managers in curriculum planning. In 2009, I completed my Crèche Management studies(FETAC level 6) and I am currently studying a level 6 in Early Childhood Care and Education. With the support of the team at Cherrywood, we aim to provide exceptional standards of care and education for all the children.

Our family started our journey with Giraffe around nine years ago when I walked in to Cherrywood when I was 4 months pregnant with our first baby. I knew then that this was where I wanted this baby to discover the world of play and adventure. I knew that I could go to work content, knowing that he was being well looked after. Over the nine years, we have shared incredible intimacies with you and the staff in Cherrywood. I would happily recommend Giraffe Cherrywood to any friend or family member.
