Continued professional education is encouraged with many of our staff achieving level 7 and level 8 in Early childhood education.

Hi, welcome to Magic Years. My name is Veronica Hale. I joined Magic Years in June 2022 as Operations manager. I studied in DCU receiving a degree in General Nursing in 2009. In 2016 I received a Masters Degree in Nursing from Trinity college Dublin. In 2017 I completed a diploma in Leadership and Management. During the course of my career I have held senior positions in nurse management roles and today I am responsible for ensuring the Operations needs in Magic Years are met.

Hi my name is Serena, I am an Early Childhood Education and Care graduate from TUD Blanchardstown. When I joined Magic Years I was allocated to the Senior Preschool room where I was promoted to room leader. During this time I expressed a strong interest in promoting high quality learning experiences to encourage children to explore their own individual interests and strengths. In 2021, I pursued a Master’s in Early Childhood Education and Care from DCU, where I got accepted. I was promoted to Person in Charge in 2022, where I developed my leadership and interpersonal skills. I then moved to the Nursery/Junior Wobbler room, where I could interact with younger children and celebrate their milestones. 

 

Hi, my name is Gervelyn Rollan, I am currently the Deputy Person in Charge in Magic Years Carpenterstown. I am assigned in the Junior Preschool room, working with children from 3-4 years old. I have just completed my FAR (First Aid Responder) training in December 2022.
 
I have been working with children since 2017. I studied Montessori Education for 3 years. When I graduated in 2019, I worked full-time in Magic Years and was assigned in the Senior Preschool room (4-5 years old). After 2 years, I continued to pursue my Level 8, studying Early Childhood Care and Education part-time in TU Dublin and graduated in 2022.
Hi, my name is Tracey Quirke I am the Person in Charge in our Clonsilla Road branch.  I have 30 years experience working with children. Twenty three of those years I have been working in Magic Years Clonsilla Road.
 
Being a parent and having had two daughters that went through the service in Beechlawn house I can appreciate the importance of maintaining open communication with all my parents. This is something that myself and my team pride ourselves in. In addition to my many year’s experience I have completed my QQI level 6 in Early childhood Education. 
Hi my name is Ellie! I am the Deputy Person in Charge in Magic Years Beechlawn House. I started my childcare journey many moons ago. Before my time with Magic Years, I was a childminder for many different age groups, including children with specific care needs. I joined Magic Years creche and preschool in 2020. Currently I am allocated in the senior wobbler room where I work with children aged between 18months and 2.5years. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to spend my time with these little incredible minds and to play an important part of the beginning of their journey through life. In addition to my experience working with children I have also successfully completed my QQ1 level 6 with Early Childhood and Education.
 
I look forward to meeting you soon.
