Giraffe Leopardstown is strategically located to serve both the business community and commuters from the residential areas of South County Business Park. It is beside the Leopardstown 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.

I started with Giraffe as deputy Manager at our centre in Leopardstown in 2016. I hold a level 7 Degree in Early Childhood Care and Education, completing my degree this year with Maynooth University. I have extensive experience in the childcare sector working with all age groups throughout my career. Along with my fantastic team here in Leopardstown, we aim to provide a stimulating environment where children can learn and develop.
Connie is our chef in Leopardstown and she prepares healthy and delicious meals for the children everyday. Her menu ideas are creative and fresh, as we try to source local produce whenever possible. Congratulations to Connie who was voted Chef of the Year 2016! 🎉

Thank you for taking such good care of Kiera and Alice over the last year. They will surely miss you and the friends that they have formed. You have been a constant presence in their lives and have made their time here fun and have looked after them with love and patience! We will miss your smiling faces and end of day stories about our girls’ days.
