About the Owner
My name is Caroline Cummins, I am the owner and one of the managers, teacher and facilitators at Carebear World trading under Precious Children Daycare. My passion is early years childcare and that resonates in the quality I strive for in my businesses.
During College, I started caring for and educating children whilst I was in training in the local community centre St. Andrews, Rialto, Dublin 8 at the age of 19 in 1999.
As this passion grew and I was able to see firsthand, the challenges due to the lack of services throughout the community. I continued to follow my natural instinct for childcare, I returned to study and in 2001 completed my Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I also obtained a Train the Trainer certification.
Before opening my own crèche, I worked in my family run catering business which afford me the opportunity to learn how to run a business firsthand, which compelled me, first to start my career path in Physical Education of youths- QQI Level 5 Sports, Recreation & Exercise moving forward into different services whilst still utilising all of my experience.
During my studies, I volunteered at St Andrews gathering a wide variety of experience, such as the following:
- Management of a community facility,
- Catering for a drop-in centre,
- Facilitating meetings and group focus events
- Providing free early childcare education to 6-month-olds up to 8-year old’s for under privileged families
- Meals on Wheels which would go out to the community.
I also had an active role, all my working life in my parents’ business, with their primary business market being catering, breakfast and lunches for a local secondary school.
I truly enjoy being with children. Discovering their unique personalities, offering my talents and desire for fun & wonderful memories, always mindful, with respect, that I take my responsibility very seriously. I always look forward to meeting each new family.
