Our Primary School aged Programmes provides a relaxed and trusting atmosphere where children are encouraged to pursue their own interests, develop friendship and grow in confidence, independence and respect for themselves and others.
Our Programmes include:
- After-Schools Service
- Out-of-School Service
We can cater for up to 35 children at any one time.
The Afterschool Service caters for children who are attending primary school and operates from 1.45pm to 5.30pm daily providing half sessional and sessional care.
Our Afterschool service is a home away from home for your child. Our professional service includes a diverse programme which allows children to thrive in a stimulating yet warm and welcoming environment. Our relaxed, yet carefully designed curriculum will meet the needs of each individual child.
Children are supported in doing their homework daily. We take into account the manner in which individual children learn, and encourage a positive attitude towards homework. Children are encouraged to learn good habits and take responsibility for doing their homework. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that the homework is completed daily. There is allocated time for homework followed by play and activities.
Our activities are centred on areas such as arts and crafts, indoor/outdoor sports, group and individual games, reading, sand/water play, dress up, imaginary play, computers, football, drama and cookery, organised outings and group projects. Our secure outdoor area ensures each child gets the opportunity to be outdoors daily. The children are involved in designing activity plans which ensures that the programme is child led.
Children attending local schools are collected by bus and transported to Listowel Family Resource Centre. Children can either be collected by parents at the end of the day or safely taken home by bus. A staff member always travels on the bus. All staff have ‘Passenger Assist’ training completed.
