Kirsty Guilfoy

I have been working in childcare for eight years following my passion of enhancing care and education for young children, I am currently Level 4 qualified. Starting as a student and working my up to Deputy Manager, I now possess a new set of skills to support staff to develop their own careers as well as provide excellent care and education for the children we look after.


Sinead Rawlings

I’ve been working in childcare for overs six years.  Qualified to Level 3, I have previously won an award for ‘Equality and Diversity in the Workplace’. I enjoy getting messy with the children and encouraging them to use their imaginations in role play.  I am still on my learning journey, my role as Room Supervisor and Third in Charge is where I will continue to gain the knowledge I need to progress.
