We aim to create a childcare service where children are professionally cared for in a relaxing yet stimulating environment.
Friendly, warm and welcoming to all. Just like children, each of our sites is totally unique.
One thing they all share is a fun, creative, and nurturing play environment where children are free to choose how and what they play. A place where children are actively encouraged to help choose, design and plan their own play.
We offer a healthy breakfast including cereal, toast and fruit. After breakfast, the children can choose from a range of games and activities, read a book, listen to music or simply chill out, if they so choose.
After School Clubs
We provide homework supervision, a healthy snack and an afternoon of fun filled activities including arts and crafts, messy play, baking, outdoor games, free play and much more.
Snack time provides a space and opportunity to promote nutritious food and to discuss health and personal hygiene with the children. The children play a role in the planning, preparation and serving of the snacks and can use this time to prepare and experiment with foods that they have never tried before.
This time also provides the staff and children with a social time, when they can form new relationships while conversing at the table. Often the conversation at snack time can become very informative for staff and can lead to ideas for play and activities.
Our staff will supervise and support the children in completing their homework Monday to Thursday.
Children will have an opportunity to complete their homework under the supervision and guidance of our staff, however, we do ask that parents check their child’s homework and reading at home as they may not have time to complete it all.
We offer homework supervision, which is a big plus for parents and children as it allows for a more relaxed end to the day for all.
We provide healthy nutritious meals and snacks devised to follow the Department of Health’s Food and Nutritional Guidelines.
We love to play, it’s what we do. We are passionate about play and making sure every child has the best possible play experience at our settings.
All technology used in our clubs is closely monitored by staff at all times.
Structured Activities vs Free Play Time
Although structured activities are very important, daily free time for children is essential after a busy day at school. We offer a programme with a balance of both free play and structured activities.
All clubs are unique and are managed to ensure the best use of the facilities available. Club Spraoi create a safe, fun and engaging environment which fulfils children’s needs, giving them the best experience possible.
All equipment and resources are provided and children have free choice of activities. These resources are presented effectively to encourage children to follow their individual interests. Activities are suitable for all ages and are adapted for indoor and outdoor play and include a chill out zone, dressing up, scooters, arts and crafts and books.
