Giraffe Leopardstown is strategically located to serve both the business community and commuters from the residential adjacencies of South Dublin Business Park. It is beside the race course, with pedestrian access through the business campus to Central Park Luas stop providing excellent transport links to the city. 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. We have 10 spacious rooms, all brightly decorated and arranged to offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment to support their love of learning. We have a wonderful activity street where we hold our farmers market, natural texture area and puppet theatre and our children love the fun days we hold monthly which are themed around their interests such as tea parties and the wild-west!
Our opening hours are from 7.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, all year round except public holidays and we offer full and part-time places for babies and children up to 5 years and we also deliver the free pre-school (ECCE) to prepare children for school. All our staff are Garda vetted, are fully qualified and attend regular training. Why not visit us and see for yourself, call (01) 254 1382 and we’ll arrange a time that’s convenient for you

My journey with Giraffe began in March 2008 in our Cherrywood centre. I started as a Wobbler group carer and soon found that my experience and passion for Early Years Education and Curriculum motivated me to become one of the Centre Supervisors. Since then I have had the experience of working with all of the different age groups. In 2011, I transferred from Deputy Manager in Cherrywood to Manager of Giraffe Leopardstown. I have completed a Masters in Fine Arts and Pedagogy and completed a level 6 Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education. I am passionate about providing exceptional standards of care and education for the children and their families, and I support my creative team to strive for the best. We promote an inclusive, diverse and equal environment.
