Profile: Sinéad Conlon Daly
My name is Sinéad Conlon Daly and I am the Manager of Daoine Óga Childcare Centre. I started working in childcare almost 20 years ago. Since then, I have seen a lot of positive changes in the sector. In order to keep up to date in changes and developments within childcare, I frequently engage Continuous Professional Development (CPD) study.
While already holding a QQI Level 5 &6 in Early Childhood Care and Education, I completed my Degree in Early Childhood Studies with TU Dublin in 2020, at night while working full-time at Daoine Óga and raising my own little family. In addition, to my current role as Manager I am also the Inclusion Officer and Designated Liaison Person for the service. One of the things that I find really rewarding about my job, is seeing the children I cared for all those years ago, now bringing their children to the service! I am able to see what fine young people they have become.
