About us

About our calm and caring team.

The name Smiley sunflowers originates from the majestic sunflowers that grow in the school garden and also happen to be the owner’s favourite flower.

Our philosophy is linked to these tall and bright yellow flowers in that we encourage all children to become confident and competent learners discovering the joy in learning. We love to see happy and smiling children.

We are a team of highly qualified and dedicated early years educators who most importantly love what we do.

The calm, gentle and caring team at Smiley Sunflowers put into practice a truly child-centred ethos and balanced curriculum.

We each bring a valuable set of skills, knowledge and strengths to the pre-school which forms a dynamic, creative, and hard working team who join together to make magic things happen.

Each child’s holistic development is important and we aim for all children to graduate from Smiley Sunflowers having had many wonderful opportunities in which to discover the joy in play and learning and to leave as confident and capable learners who are well positioned to start their next school experience.

All members of the team have FETAC Level 6 in Childcare or higher, are Garda-vetted and have First Aid training.
