Our Staff

It is the people that make a Crèche special and Nourrice has a wonderful team of highly qualified (minimum FETAC Level 5 with paediatric first aid) and experienced childcare professionals.

The consistency in the team is a major contributor to our success as all staff establish a genuine rapport with every child and family over time.

Gillian Murphy – Managing Director

Gillian Murphy – Managing Director

Qualifications:

  • BA (Hon) in Business & French
  • Diploma in Montessori Education
  • Nursery Nursing

Having completed my degree I went on to work in business while completing a Nursery Nursing & Montessori diploma by night.

At this stage I realised that a strong desire within me would be unfulfilled if I did not work with children in some way.

I transferred into childcare with a job in The Park Academy, Dublin in 1998. I gained invaluable experience in the operation of a quality childcare facility.

In 2001 I moved to Wexford and established Nourrice Creche & Nourrice preschool Montessori Centre.

It has been the most wonderful journey thus far. The team that work for me are amazing. They are so dedicated and great fun.

I enjoy every aspect of managing my crèche. There is something different everyday. It is very sociable and the constant progression of the service to enhance the experience of the families attending is so exciting.

Elaine Ryan – Creche Manager

Qualifications:

  • Certificate in Childcare Fetac Level 5
  • Diploma in Montessori Education

I have been working in Nourrice for 9 years now, since 2002. My first position in the crèche was as Montessori teacher. As the crèche developed I progressed to Manager.

Over the years I have had the pleasure of being part of a crèche that has grown to what we are today. My job satisfaction comes from knowing that the children who attend Nourrice experience a caring and nurturing environment where they can grow and develop at their own pace.

I find each and every day at Nourrice different, rewarding and most enjoyable. I could not imagine myself being part of a better childcare team.

Cristine Kiernan – Baby Room

Qualifications:

  • BA (Hon) Degree in Early Childhood Studies
  • Certificate in Family Law

I’ve worked in the Baby room for the last 3 years. Each day in the Baby room is different. That’s what makes my job so challengling, rewarding & exciting. I get to see each baby grow and develop through the activities we do every day- music, painting, sensory and physical play and to watch them continue up through the different stages in the crèche.

One of the best things about working in Nourrice (after the kids of course) is the sense of team spirit among staff. There is always someone to call on if you need help or ideas.

A warm friendly atmosphere greets you each morning when you enter and it's what brings staff, parents and most importantly, the children back day after day, with a smile on their face!!

I have been working at Nourrice for almost 2 years now and I can gladly say it has been brilliant. I work with the toddlers in the crèche in the Jelly Tots room, so needless to say we’re an energetic bunch of people and always on the go.

Nourrice is a great setting for the children with large outdoor areas which cater for sand, water & messy play which my group love.

Another major bonus of working at Nourrice is that I am part of a wonderful team of childcare professionals, who have the children’s best interests at heart. I feel we are a part of helping them to grow and develop in a loving caring environment.
