Monday to Thursday 1.30 PM – 4.30 PM
Our Afterschool Programme is for children aged 5 – 12.
It operates each day Monday to Friday 1.30 PM – 4.30 PM from September to June. Children have the opportunity to take part in Arts & Crafts, Sports and Games, as well as receiving help with their homework. A nutritious, hot meal is provided free of charge every day.
The Afterschool Programme is co-ordinated by a fully qualified and experienced Youth Worker. The Centre is also grateful to have some students from St Patrick’s College and Marino Institute of Education, as well as local Transition Year students volunteering with us.
During school holidays, children are offered an easter and summer programme daily. During this programme children are based in the centre one day a week and are off site the other days engaging in outdoor activities – visiting the beach for crab fishing; visiting parks and local areas of interest in addition to enjoying cinema and other indoor entertainment.
