Message from Sonya Duggan - Director, Kilminchy School House

With thirty years industry experience and twenty-two years running my own service/s, I am delighted to be awarded ‘Thought Leader in Early Childhood Education’ and meeting the standards set out as part of the Business All-Star Accreditation.

It is a testament to our hard work in what is, a very challenging, over-regulated and evolving sector. My colleagues and I will continue to strive for excellence through innovative approaches and processes in the future.

I look forward to the support given by the AIBF & All-Star Team and the opportunity to participate in the TRIBE which will help us to identify the common traits we have with fellow TRIBE Companies that recognise the importance on having a clear strategic plan, a capable and motivated Team, a Senior Leadership commitment to constant improvement and clear evidence of robust financial planning.
