We were delighted when a place became available for Ruairí at Dora’s as we had heard how wonderful she was. She is such a huge part of our lives now we can’t imagine life without her. She is loving and so attentive to Ruairí’s development. He has come along in leaps and bounds since he started hanging out with Dora and co. Already having kids herself, we have learnt so much about raising a kid from her. Things that we never expected but that Dora does on a daily basis are things like art and crafts and making fun food together.
No matter the situation or the weather she always seems to have a fun and creative activity that kids of all ages can take some part in. Ruairí is usually the youngest at Dora’s House, but he sees Dora and the other kids she minds (including her own son) as family, always ready to give them and her a hug, a kiss and wave goodbye. She always keeps us informed of how Ruairí is doing, especially after he had first started going to Dora’s House when she knew we would be missing him.
She always has time for us and I don’t know where she gets her energy or creativity from! We cannot recommend highly enough, you will not find better childcare in Belfast. Even our extended family and friends back home in Galway know Dora and how amazing she is and they are often jealous: every city and every family should have a Dora in their lives. Please contact us if you have any questions or want a reference or anything.
