Profile: Sinead Purdy
My name is Sinead Purdy and I have been working in the Early Years Sector for over 25 years. I joined Liag na N’og Preschool as the Manager in October 2019, prior to that I was working as the Assistant Manager in Le Cheile, another service within the Crann Support Group organization. I have held Assistant Manager positions in two full day care settings in Dublin.
Along with many years experience I have continually engaged in professional development training and am trained in the Highscope Curriculum. This along with the Aistear Curriculum Framework and Siolta the National Quality Framework reflect my strong belief in providing a child centred curriculum that recognizes children’s individuality and offers plenty of opportunity for choice.
I am a trained Nursery Nurse and hold a Fetac Level 6 in Supervision in Childcare. In May 2019 I completed a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Care and Education in TU Blanchardstown. I thoroughly enjoy my work with the children and never cease to be amazed and inspired by them. I look forward to many more years of supporting children on their educational journey.
