Summer Childcare for
Primary School-Aged Children 2023

We will be continuing our after-school service during the summer holidays with full day and half day childcare. This service will commence on Monday July 3rd and will break for staff holidays from 7th – 21st August. The service will finish for the summer on Friday 25th August.

Our location for the summer will be in the playschool room in Cairde Caher, ArdCaher to allow for the building works to go ahead at Louisburgh NS. The room will be suitably adapted with age appropriate equipment. There will be no service operating now for the first and last weeks of the school holidays because of the building works at the school and the need for the playschool to use the room in CairdeCaher during these 2 weeks.

This will not be operated as a summer camp as it will be running from 8.30am until 5.30pm each day but will be a structured programme with a morning of free-play activities and a themed afternoon. There will be outings to the library, playground, Astroturf  etc. Half days are from 8.30am-1pm or 1pm to 5.30pm.

Anyone interested in finding out more or in making a booking can download a booking form below, contact or call Maggie on 086 0865381.

As this is a Tusla-registered service, families using the service will be eligible to avail of the subsidies from the National Childcare Scheme.
