We are really sad to be writing this email,  we have decided that as I am going on unpaid leave and then on a career break we will have stop sending my son to you. As you know we have all loved having you as our child care over the last 6 years and we would hope that our two boys will go to you for Montessori ). We want to thank you both and all the girls in giggles from the bottom of our hearts for all the love care and attention that our children has received over the years and we look forward to the boys coming back to you in the near future.


October 2017
To Marie, Bernice, Norma and all the fantastic staff at Giggles,

Thank you so much for taking such good care of our son over the past 4 years. He was always so comfortable, happy and content at Giggles, which made our lives as parents so much easier as well. He has some great friends and memories from Giggles and still speaks quite frequently and fondly of his teachers. Our little man struggled with communication and speech, and you all went above and beyond to ensure that his needs were met and his development was not impacted – as a result he started school a happy and confident child and settled in quickly to his new routine. We will be forever grateful to you all for giving him such a great start.

To all the staff in Giggles

Thank you so much for minding, nurturing, teaching and caring for our 3 children, thank you for sharing a special time in the life of our kids never once were we worried!!  Giggles is a very special place and we have lots of very fond memories.


Crossbarry June 2017

Marie, Bernice Norma and all the wonderful Giggles staff,

I just wanted to write a few words to express my thanks for the wonderful care you all provide for my 3 children over the past 9 years (almost!).  There was not a single occasion in all the years that gave me any reason to be less than 100% confident my kids were in the best possible care.  I credit the early years spent in Giggles to have played a huge role in helping my older children become confident, friendly happy kids and my youngest is following suit..  All your policies and initiatives were so beneficial from the wonderful food Breda provides to the emphasis on outdoor play and independent play.  Thanks in particular for being so supportive and flexible in allowing our arrangement this past year.  We will miss Giggle Best wishes to you all.


Passage June 2017 ( a child’s Perspective)

We have laughed, and played and learnt alot I hope you will not forget me Thank you for helping me Grow!


Crossbarry Oct 2016

Feedback for you is how happy my little girl is, she cries on Fridays when she is home with me.  Also to note that in comparison to the creche we used with our older girl, well there is no comparison.  The level of calmness and imagination play in Giggles is outstanding and she is thriving socially and developmentally as a result


Passage Oct 2016

Just want to say a big thank you to you and the girls for the wonderful care that Julia gets.  She absolutely loves “school” and skips in the door every morning.  Thank you for making all our lives a lot easier and brighter!


Passage Oct 2016

Our two love it there and are very happy, as are we.  The girls do an amazing job and make it so easy to drop off on those hard mornings when not everyone is happy to be dropped off.


Passage August 2016

A Child’s Mom sent this in on behalf of her child,

Although you’re not our mother your cared for us each day, you cuddle, sung and  read to us, and watche us as we’d play. You saw each new accomplishement and helped us grow and learn, you understood our language, and listened with concern we cam to you for comfort, and you kissed away our tears, we’d proudly show our work to you you’d give the lovest cheers!

We know your not our mother, but your role was just as strong you nurtured us and kept us safe, though maybe not for long, we knew someday the time would come when we would have to part but we know a special piece of you is forever in our heart.

Thank you so much for minding me, caring for me and loving me, I will miss you all but probably back from Set one after school day a week so no goodbyes just yet.


Crossbarry August  2016

Thank you to all the Wonderful Staff At Giggles

Our 2 children have had an amazing time over the last 18months.  Both of them have thrived under your care and for that, we cannot thank you enough.  A Special mention to Natalia and Annemarie who settle a very shy little girl into the Baby room – made my transition to work so much easier.  We wish you all a fab summer and best wishes for the future

To the amazing Giggles Team

On behalf of both of us, I want to convey my deepest and most sincere thank you for the wonderful experience our 2 children have had in your care.  Ever since the first day I walked in the door I knew Giggles was the place for us; I truly believe you know and care for out children at least as well and maybe better than we do.  Giggles has been such an important part of our lives and our children’s development we will be forever grateful.


July 2016

To All the Staff in Giggles

Thank you for taking care of my daughter from 10months old until now….. when’s she is ready to start school.  She has particularly loved and thrived in confidence this past year.  She and I will miss Giggles, but thank you for such great preparation you have given her for school in September.


July 2016

Dear Marie and Bernice

It’s hard to believe that our youngest is now finished in Giggles, and with him finishing up with yourselves it brings an end to an era.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for all that you did for all of our boys.

I can honestly say that once I dropped off the boys in the morning, I nevered worried about them as I always knew that they were in such safe hands in an environment that they were not just being educated, but nurtured in life skills, in friendships and introduced to the world around them.  If I am honest, I even learned a thing or two!!

Your staff are a huge asset to you, there was always a welcome smile in the morning and a cheery greeting from them.

So thank you both for all your support and kindness over the years and I would like to wish you continued success.


March 2016 Passage

Sept 2015 – Passage

To all at Giggles

Heartfelt thanks for the amazing care you’ve given the four girls.  I was always happy with Giggles but this year you have really surpassed yourselves.  The Twins had an amazing time.  The atmosphere is a happy one and I’ve watched the children truly blossom this year.  Thanks for giving them such a great start in life.



July 2015  - Crossbarry

Hi Bernice & Marie

As both our girls are entering new groups in Giggles we just want to drop a note to say thank you.  Giggles is the first time the girls have been cared for outside the their home and we are thrilled with the service you and your team provide.  The activities and the environment are super but most importantly to us the girls are genuinely cared for by affectionate and passionate staff.

A special thanks to all who looked after them this past term.  We would recommend Giggles to any parent and look forward to the next phase for the girls





March 2015  Crossbarry

Bernice & Marie

I just wanted to give you some feedback about our experience with Giggles.  All of your staff are beyond excellent and I think you should be proud of them all.  I would just like to mention On staff in particular, to say my son is challenging at times is an understatement but she has at all times been so patient and lovely while still maintaining his respect.  He comes home in the evenings and is so proud telling us that (the staff member) said he was a good boy and he tells my mam (his nana) that he is (the staff) best boy.   It is a comfort to send my 2 children into Giggles every day because they both love it so much.  (a present parent who asked not mention names)


July 2014   Passage

To Marie, Bernice & staff

It’s with a heavy but grateful heart I’m writing this card. I cannot believe our “Giggle” days have come to an end Both Calum & Ethan have come a long way and enjoyed every minute of it, and for that we would like to thank you both and your superb staff.
We wish ye every success in the future and will always highly recommend Giggles.



July 2014  Crossbarry

Bernice, Marie and all the staff

Thank you all for your hard work and kindness you have shown us in the last 5 years. Pearl & Felix have loved attending Giggles and we are so appreciative of the wonderful start you have provided them. I am regularly amused and surprised at their knowledge on certain topics which they tell me they learnt at Giggles.



June 2014 Passage
Thanks Bernice & Marie and all the staff for being so kind and taking care of Stephen for the last 21/2 years he has loved every minute.


June 2014 Crossbarry
Hi Marie & Bernice

I just want to thank you and your team for the great care you have given Ciara over the last 2 years. We have seen her blossom and become a very independent strong willed little girl. We have no doubt she has made good memories of her time there and has made nice little friends.
Again I must thank you. During her time in Giggles we were always confident that she was safe and well cared for and we never had any cause to worry.


Oct 2013   Crossbarry

“With all the talk of creches in the news this week I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for taking such fantastic care of my son for the last few years. Your staff and the creche are a credit to you both.  Anytime we pass your gates, he still cheers with excitement. I had complete peace of mind leaving him in your care.  I look forward to returning to Giggles in January with both my boys.”
