About Me

Hi my name is Tierna Cunningham, I am married to Michael and we have a beautiful 8 year old son called Seán who enjoys the company of other children.

As a mother I understand that choosing the best Childcare environment can be a daunting process. I have developed my service based on what my own expectations would be when choosing a service provider for my son.

Our home is welcoming, secure and child friendly with a large, enclosed back garden. We have an extensive range of indoor and outdoor toys for all ages.

My main aim is to provide a high quality service to a small number of children guaranteeing that children get the attention they need and deserve.

I am local to most schools in the Newtownabbey/Glengormley area and can do school pick ups if needed.

My Experience

I am a fully vetted and qualified Youth Worker with 15 years experience of providing structured, fun activities for children and young people from 0-18 years of age.

I operate a Healthy Eating Policy in consultation with parents in line with their child's specific dietary needs.

I am an advocate of outdoor explore and play. We are blessed that we have so many natural beauty spots on our door step such as Cavehill, Throne Wood and the North Foreshore. We will visit these locations regularly as part of our structured play. We will also attend local Baby and Toddler groups, Soft Play Centres, The Zoo and other child friendly venues that are appropriate to your child's needs and age.

In the summer months I will arrange a summer programme that will keep your child active and entertained.
