           Assistant Manager Family Support & Operations

Catherine Hanley 

 
I love process and procedures! and to date, some of my better moments...
  • Level 9 in Leadership studies
  • IT Diploma
  • IITD Trainer,
  • Trainer  for Intercultural Health and  basic computer skills and IT literacy.
  • Infant Mental Health: Promoting early social and emotional development in babies and toddlers has a powerful impact on the establishment of healthy and secure attachment relationships. It also acts as significant protection against the development of childhood difficulties including emotional, social and behavioural issues and the impact of these adverse issues on later development.
  • Meitheal Training: A national practice model that enables the needs and strengths of children and their families to be properly identified and understood. ... The way Meitheal works is a lead practitioner will identify a child's and their family's needs and strengths and then bring together a"team around the child".  
  • Facilitator for Incredible Years, TLC KIDZ, Parent Plus  and Rainbows
 I have learned so much about what the word “Community” means….

Childcare Practitioner

Arina Dreglea

 
Hello, I joined the Tots2Teen childcare team in 2016 and am excited to be a part of it.
I grew up in Latvia, graduated from University of Latvia as an English Language Teacher, worked with children aged 4-15. In 2008 I came to Ireland  to study MA in English Language Teaching in Limerick. The strong caring side of my personality and passion for children led me into the Early Education and Childcare.
I enjoy watching children accomplish tasks and seeing their proud looks on their faces, to teach them new things and provide them with new experiences. 
Outside of  work I enjoy cooking, reading and being outdoors with my  two children doing anything and everything.
