After School Service

- We are located at the rear of the local primary school, allowing us to drop and collect the children by foot. We have a purpose built after-school room and dining room with it’s own entrance at the rear of our center. We offer breakfast club & after-school collections. We follow the school calendar for Clondrohid National School. Breakfast is served to the children in the After School Dining room each morning from 8:00 am -.8:40 am. The children are walked to school at 8:45 am. School collections begin at 1:30 pm & 2:30 pm. Dinner is served in the After School dining room. Children are given the opportunity to do their homework they are supported by our practitioners and given a quiet area, but we do not take responsibility for their homework. Each day children that attend our after-school club have access to a lot of age appropriate games. Arts & crafts, jig-saws, painting, books and music and our outdoor playground. We offer different types of care:

Out of School Childcare.
Our After school service only operates during the school term but we do offer “Out of School Childcare” to school going children in our After school room during school holidays to facilitate working parents. Halloween, Christmas, Mid Term, Easter & Summer Holidays. Its a full day-care creche service. Our opening hours are 8:00 am – 6:00 pm Monday to Friday Each day children that attend have access to lots of age appropriate Games, Arts & Crafts, jigsaws, painting, outdoor playground, books, music etc… They build relationships with other children that attend after school that they may not meet in school or in different classes and these form solid relationships that go on through the years. All of the children have a fantastic relationship with our after school staff they build up a trust with them over time, that’s what makes our after school service so successful and popular with parents and children knowing their child (children) are going into an environment feeling safe,secure and happy.
