Parent Reviews / Feedback

To everyone at Safari Childcare. Words cannot possibly express how grateful we are for the incredible care you've taken of Brendan over the years. It's hard to leave your child in someone else's care but every single member of the creche staff has treated Brendan so well and been firendly and wonderful to us. We couldn't have lived in Dublin, away from both our families without your support. You've helped Brendan grow up - he was a tiny baby who couldn't even sit up when he started and now he can do lots of things (some of which he shouldn't) that you've taught him. We will have a hard time finding a creche in Boston that we like as much!
Enclosed in a gift for all of you with our most sincere thanks for helping raise our son. We don't know how you manage everyday with such patience and smiles! Enjoy a well deserved night out on Brendan!

We can't believe James' time with Safari is coming to an end! We are excited for him about the start of his school years but also a bit sad that his days at Montessori are over. We are so grateful to you and all your team for making these such wonderful years for James. You have always been so kind and he has learned so much from you. It has been an invaluable experience.
We feel we hit the childcare "jackpot", so to speak, with Safari. It was amazing to be able to go to work and have 100% confidence in how well our children were being looked after. It is simply impossible to put into words how grateful we are. Thank you so much again.

To everyone in Safari, A massive THANK YOU for creating a loving warm environment for my Boo Boo Seán for the past 2.5 years. We are heartbroken leaving you and we really just wish Safari would move to Glasthule!! Thank you for being so professional always and most of all for being so kind to my little boy.
You are an incrediable group of people - so professional but loving - you can feel the possitive energy as soon as you walk in - Hugely appreciated.
We wish you all the very best in the future.
