&
after school care

Our Homework & Afterschool Care service is called ” The Den”.

It is Mullingar’s leading school pick up service. We pick up from nine local National Schools in Mullingar.

The children are divided into groups by age, across 4 rooms in 2 buildings.

The children love the name ‘The Den’ as it reflects the fun atmosphere created for all the children to enjoy after school.

After dinner and homework the rest of the day is one of relaxation and enjoyment of many fun activities that take place here.

Usually the children don’t want to go home from ”The Den”.

A separate purpose built facility caters for all our Junior and Senior Infant children. The children are dropped to us by our fully insured and registered buses.

The children receive a hot meal made in-house by our own chef. The children love the healthy dinner provided to each child.

They complete their homework under the supervision of fully qualified teachers. After the homework is complete there is a full range of indoor and outdoor activities for the children to enjoy.

Our aim is to create a caring, relaxing and enjoyment environment for the children to play, learn & grow.

In 2016 we opened a new Homework & Afterschool Care purpose built facility. The building is surrounded by a purpose designed astro surface.

This outdoor facility includes an animal section where children pet and play with the rabbit and hens. 

There is a grass surface to play & explore which has a Hobbit and Playhouses and an astro surface for bikes, football and basketball.

Inside we play many activities such as board games, quizzes, table tennis and foosball. We do daily Arts & Crafts where amazing creative items are designed and made by the children.

parent
feedback

I am afraid we are completely biased as we think we have the best Montessori School in Ireland.

So here are some parents to tell you about their experiences!

THE SOCIAL FOCUS IS SECOND TO NONE AND THERE IS ALWAYS LOTS OF FUN TO BE HAD IN A VERY SAFE AND CREATIVE SPACE

- Eleanor Cave McDonagh -

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (or Jill a dull girl!), and that’s what we experienced from Mullingar Montessori, but not to the exclusion of Trojan work.

Aifric had marked speech difficulties in her earlier years from being born with a cleft palate. But under the warm care and keen watchful eye of Mullingar Montessori from 2 1/2 years old, she excelled socially.

She made firm friends and overcame the academic limitations she might otherwise have felt in early education due to the speech issues at that time.

Ursula, totally above and beyond the call of any duty, proactively came to us, suggested and provided an onsite tutor for Aifric for 30 minutes one to one tuition each day in her final year.

This was to ensure Aifric kept the pace that they knew she would be capable of with that extra attention and that has most definitely stood to her in Junior Infants.

Aifric still adores The Den, attending twice weekly, really as a treat and for structured after-school play, as the social focus is second to none and there is always lots of fun to be had in a very safe and creative space.

it really means great peace of mind for us

- Conor & Teresa Hanniffy -

We feel our kids are looked after in a caring environment with plenty of outdoor play and busy indoor art and crafts activities.

With good meals, homework help and drop offs and collections to school, it really means great peace of mind for us while being at work during the day.
