Breakfast & Afterschool Club

Rathfarnham Day Care also run a Breakfast and Afterschool Club for those parents who have an earlier start or perhaps a later finish to their day - either on a permanent or occasional basis.


Breakfast Club Details
  • The Breakfast Club operates from 7.00am - 8.30am Monday to Friday.
  • A member of staff, supported by up to two others, is responsible for organising and supervising breakfast and activities.
  • The children are offered a breakfast comprising of cereals, toast, milk, fruit and yoghurt.
  • Breakfast finished at 8.00 am and the children can participate in activities until they are ready to leave for school.
  • We have three fully insured school buses which leave at 8.15 am sharp to bring children to school.

Afterschool Club Details
  • Our Afterschool Club starts when children are collected from school until 7.00 pm.
  • When children arrive from school they can change their clothes, this saves their uniforms from getting dirty. We ask parents to provide slippers for indoor use and wellies or old shoes for outdoor use which can be left in the creche.
  • During this time a member of staff, supported by up to two others, is responsible for organising and supervising our Afterschool Club.
  • The children are offered a hot dinner on arrival at the creche and a light snack later in the afternoon. Please see our sample menu.
  • Homework is supervised by a member of staff but we do ask that parents check their children’s homework when they get home also.
  • Children can participate in activities until they are collected such as arts and crafts and we encourage children to go outdoors for some fresh air and to use our large secure outdoor play area.

School Holidays
All After School children will be offered full day care for days off school, e.g. service days and school holidays.
