Our afterschool group will have two separate areas of the facility to themselves. Their areas are going to be richly provided with materials and toys to suit their interests and needs. We will be providing on-site extra-curricular activities for the afterschool group every week – this will be included in your child’s fee!!! We will confirm to you once we have the list of activities to choose from. Focusing on one group being junior infants – 1st class and the other group 2 – 6th class. They will also be provided with an area to relax and watch movies with parental consent. For those in the younger groups we can offer sleep area if they need during those first few months of starting school.
