Parent Testimonials

When I returned to University it was a stressful time and knowing that my daughter was happy and well cared for made the transition easier for me. The staff are wonderful, and I highly recommend the service.

Parent at NUIG, Newcastle Creche

We have our two girls in spraoi knocknacarra & we are delighted with it. We were nervous parents when they started as it was there first time in creche but from day one they loved it. The girls skip in every day so happy & the staff are so lovely. We would highly recommend this creche.

Elinor & Noel Tyrrell

Our son Eli has attended Sonas since the first day it opened its doors. It is a brand new créche and the facilities provided for the children are excellent, in particular the outdoor play area. I have nothing but praise for the staff at Sonas. They do different activities with the babies every day, that I would never even think of doing, and have a new theme each week which is great for the kids learning and development. It is clear that the girls take such good care of our little boy as he runs in happily every morning and doesn't want to leave at the end of the day. Eli moved up to the toddlers room in January and he loves it. I can see him becoming more independent everyday and the social interaction with babies his age is wonderful. The Childpaths app is brilliant as we receive pictures and updates on Eli throughout the day. I would highly recommend Sonas if you are looking for a safe and caring environment for your little ones.

Jess

I sent my first little one to the Gort creche, it was like a home away from home for her. When it came to our second child, I didn’t have to think about it and I didn’t hesitate in sending my second there too. I’m glad I did as they both loved it. They run through the doors in the morning which is a relief as I know that they are happy to see both their friends and the staff. This means the world to us as parents.

Parent at Boland’s Court, Gort Creche

The reason I chose Spraoi was the central location and the Childpaths App that they use. It gave me great confidence that my son was busy learning and playing all day long. It really kept us in the loop as parents. Fantastic facilities inside and out.
