Giraffe Childcare Griffeen is situated beside the Educate together school on Griffeen Avenue. It is a purpose designed crèche in heart of a residential area and is very conveniently located for the N4, N7 and the M50 commuter routes. Our crèche is very much a part of the local community, hosting a range of family events accompanied by a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We work with the local mobile library service, who visit our centre regularly and provide us with additional age appropriate resources and librarian also reads to our children! We have 7 bright an spacious rooms with access to the garden which the children can enjoy all year round whatever the weather! We have a broad curriculum which supports each child to learn the skills that they need to develop to become confident, happy learners.
We offer childcare to babies and children up to 5 years and we also deliver the free pre-school year (ECCE scheme). We are open from Monday to Friday from 7.15am to 6.45pm all year round, except for public holidays. All staff are Garda vetted, are fully qualified and attend regular training.

I started with Giraffe as centre manager of our Lucan centre in 2012. As a mother of 2 children, I understand the importance of nurturing a child’s independent learning at every age. I hold a level 6 Diploma in Early Childhood Learning and have extensive experience in the childcare sector. As a senior manager I support the Lucan centre along with my fantastic team here in Griffeen and we aim to create exceptional learning experiences for all the children.

We are and always have been very happy that the boys are very well cared for in the centre and we are thankful to you both and to all of the girls for all of the love, care and attention given to the boys over the past few years.
