Caitriona Barrett (Monkstown branch)
Hi, my name is Caitriona and I have worked for WeeCare since April 2002. I started in WeeCare as a deputy- Coordinator and was promoted to Coordinator in July 2003 and have worked here ever since!
Before I started in WeeCare I lived in San Francisco and worked in a Chinese American school teaching English through the Montessori method of education.
I have a FETAC level 6 Qualification in the Montessori method of teaching 0-6 years, FETAC Level 5 Qualification in early childhood care and education and Certificates in management. I also keep my training up to date in the following areas first Aid, food safety and fire safety training. I am the Designated Safeguarding officer in Monkstown.
My 2 children now aged 7 and 9 years of age have gone through the nursery and they have always classified it as their home from home. I have been very lucky that many of the staff are still with me since I took over as coordinator in 2003. Together we strive every day to provide a stimulating and enriched environment for all the children in our care.
"We are delighted to have found a creche as wonderful as WeeCare. "
