We feel that After Schoolers are a very special group that deserve a programme specially designed for them.
To this end we choose our afterschool leaders for their skills in the area of sports and the arts. All our leaders are garda vetted and understand child protection issues. Our morning Montessori teachers supervise the homework.
We offer a very unusual service and would recommend that you call in any time to visit us and see us in action. We understand the pressures that families face and will consider all requests to support our parents and children. Our ethos is to provide a safe, creative, sporty and fun program for the children and a supportive, stable and flexible approach to the parents.
In order to create this environment we ask that you as parents support our ideals and staff. We are building a brand new type of afterschool care and we are open to all ideas. We pride ourselves on providing a very interesting and varied program that includes dance, sports shows, arts and crafts, chess, lego and board games We are innovative, friendly and most of all FUN.
In order to give the children the best possible experience we operate from two locations:
- Iona Crescent: for junior and senior infants
- ABCD building: older children
To facilitate parents we can arrange for siblings to be in the same premises. The club runs weekly during school terms and daily during holiday periods. .
Your child will have access to a genuinely varied and exciting range of activities. These change depending on the interests and skills of the leaders. We have access to a large fully equipped dance studio, garden and childrens village.
Our holiday camps are designed to give children as much free range opportunities as possible.
Our ethos encourages the children to be proud of their club membership and to be supportive of each other. We expect good manners at all times and our older members act as junior leaders.
Our Stay & Play afterschool club won the Eircom digital boost competition. Our multi-platform collection app was developed in colaberation with Google so we have excellent technical support. This app allows parents easily contact the club, receive notifications that their child has been collected, receive up to date photos and information and to vary their childs attendance days.
Our morning Pre-School service won the Early Childhood Ireland award for innovation. We truly value your support. We do not want to be seen as a service to be used but rather a friend of your family.
