Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Our nursery setting is open Monday to Friday from 07:00 to 19:00, for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. Our spacious baby room offers a separate sleeping area, and our large outdoor area offers plenty of opportunity for children to explore the world around them.

Meet the Team

Catherine Mc Kearney

I studied in DIT Mountjoy Square and graduated with a Degree in Early Childhood Care and Education in 2006. I also have a Diploma in Montessori Teaching from The Montessori Education Centre. I began working for Bright Horizons as Deputy Manager in our Drogheda Centre in 2008 and then as Acting Manager in our Eastpoint Centre. I became Centre Manager here in Blanchardstown in 2010. I feel very grateful to work for Bright Horizons and the opportunity it has given me to work with the children and families and such a great team of people everyday.

Dolores Flynn

I have worked at Blanchardstown since 2006. I have been qualified in childcare for over 23 years. I hold a certificate in childcare pre-nursing and am currently studying for my level 6. I have also received training in advanced child protection. I currently hold certificates for manual handling, fire marshal training and occupational first aid.  As part of my role, I have also completed online training in food allergies.  For me there was never any doubt as to whether or not I would work in childcare. It has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I love every minute spent with the children and love the fact that no two days are ever the same.

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 10 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
