What Parents are Saying

“Leo has come on great with his speech and walking/balance. This is down to the care and attention he receives from the staff looking after him.”

Jamie, Fionn Ghlas

“Harry’s language and social skills have improved greatly. The staff are very caring and my son has a great relationship with them.”

Nicola, Fionn Ghlas

“I couldn’t be happier with the service my child receives at the Fionn Ghlas Early Years Hub. The staff are so supportive and my child goes to school and comes home with a smile on his face.”

Sarah, Fionn Ghlas

“I would highly recommend Finglas childcare, the staff are amazing at their job. My two sons attended creche, both loved it. My youngest still attends and runs in every morning with a smile on his face.”

Andrea, Oak Tree

“Kayla has been attending here since she was 9 months old, I will be forever grateful to the creche and staff for providing so many learning opportunities. The skills she has acquired will stand to her for the rest of her life.”

Leah, Fionn Ghlas

“As a parent I am happy to recommend the Oak Tree creche, my daughter spent her time well here and happily went in every day. The staff are very kind and caring with the children.”

Joana, Oak Tree

“Our two boys went to Oaktree, they love the creche meeting their friends. The childcare staff are fantastic. I love getting weekly pictures, art work and hearing new songs from my sons. I would highly recommend Oak Tree, friendly staff make it very welcoming for the children.”

Anto & Breda, Oak Tree

“I am extremely satisfied with the service provided by Finglas Childcare. My daughter loves her time there and comes out smiling every day. She has bypassed all of her development milestones and her word count is amazing for her age. Everyone who works there is kind, friendly and helpful and I would have no problem recommending them to anyone who is looking for a Childcare provider.”

Parent/Guardian, Willow Tree

“We have been really happy with the care our son has been getting at Willow Tree. He runs in every day, it is a joy to see him so happy there. Communication with the staff is good. They are happy to talk about any concerns we have about his development. We feel very confident that our son is being looked after at Willow tree. They are professional and caring”

Parent/Guardian, Willow Tree

“The level of care, attention and love that my son gets from Tanya and CIci and the staff is breathtaking.  I never imagined he would have a second family at creche. I simply cannot say enough about Finglas Childcare, it is a little home away from home.  I will be very sad when my son has to move on, but I know that he has a great foundation from all the super staff here, I am forever grateful.”

Sinead and Darren, Fionn Ghlas
