My journey with Giraffe started in our Milltown centre in 2015 when I joined the team as a centre Supervisor. In 2016 I became Deputy Manager in our Leopardstown Centre, and in 2017 I had the pleasure of joining the Cherrywood team as Centre Manager. I have been in childcare for almost 10 years and hold an BA Honours Degree in Early Years Education from Cork Institute of Technology. I have extensive experience with all age groups and am extremely passionate about early years education. Together with my wonderful team here in Cherrywood, we aim to provide the highest standard of care for each child in a fun and stimulating environment.
I started with Giraffe as a carer in 2004, and was Centre manager of our Liffey Valley centre, then Milltown before moving to Cherrywood to join the team in 2017. I have enjoyed working with children of all different age groups, and host training workshops for staff and other centre managers in Curriculum planning. I hold a level 6 diploma in Early Childhood Education, and along with my fantastic team here in Cherrywood, we aim to create exceptional learning experiences 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.
