Extended Day

We understand that for many of our working parents this is an essential part of the care that we provide.

To allow parents extra flexibility and peace of mind, Rathdown Junior School provides extensive after-school facilities including an Extended Day Programme which runs throughout the year and an activity camp which opens during school holidays.

The Extended Day Programme provides a secure and stimulating environment for children outside school hours. Under the supervision of qualified staff, the Programme runs daily (Mon – Fri) from 8 am until 6.30pm all year round, excluding bank and national holidays.

Children participate in a mixture of structured activities such as art, craft and cookery while enjoying play time outdoors for some of the afternoon (weather permitting). Time is also set aside each day for supervised prep.

Our programme has been devised in keeping with the caring ethos of the Junior School and aims to provide a home-from-home atmosphere for the children.
Flexible hourly, weekly, monthly and annual rates are available. Please contact the Extended Day Team on 01 201 3930 for further information.
