Hi all,

I´m new to all this so was hoping some of you would share your thoughts.

I am a primary school teacher raising my baby through Irish. I am seriously considering giving up teaching for a few years to raise my son, at least til he starts school and am thinking about caring for another child/ children in my home to supplement my husbands income. Do u think there would be demand for an Irish speaking childminder? How would I best go about finding a family/families? I thought about maybe approaching Gaelscoileanna in the area.

How much can I expect to earn? Is it better to take siblings or children from different families?

Also, I live in an apartment. It´s a really nice large ground floor apartment in lovely safe sought after location (next to coast and St Anne´s Park ) with other families in the building. Do u think this would completely put people off? Am I better off waiting til we have a house (hopefully by the end of the year).

Your thoughts on this are much appreciated.

Hi Mairéad,
I wouldn´t be looking to start til my baby is older, he´s only 6months and very demanding of my attention. I was really just looking for feedback to see if it would be a viable option.
Good luck finding someone for your girls.

Hi,
I think there would be a demand. We are currently looking for a child minder that speaks Irish as our children are going to go to scoil neasain. My daughter is starting in September and my son the following year (2018). I know you said you are not looking for a family just yet but I´d be happy to chat to you about minding our kids. We are flexible enough and only require a few hours a day and it wouldn´t be everyday. I have a 7 month old baby also. Wondering if we could chat privately about it maybe?

Are you still looking for someone?
I am available and I am an Irish speaker. I want to immerse myself in the language more as I hope to become a primary school teacher myself by doing the HDAPE with Hibernia College next April. CV and references can be supplied.

Hi
I´m a childminder living across the road from Scoil Neasain. My daughter is in first class there.
My experience there is definitely a demand from parents for childminder who speak Irish or who have children in the house who speak Irish.
