page JK2Jolly Kids consists of a Breakfast Club and Afterschools Club that provides Home Work Supervision.
The Breakfast Club is open 7.00am – 9am, Monday – Friday
where the children have a light breakfast and enjoy various activities all in pleasant, bright surroundings before the children are dropped off to School.

The Afterschools Club is open 2.00pm – 6pm, Monday – Friday
where the children can relax after a long day at school. There is a wide range of activities for the children to choose from as well as outdoor experiences. Children have the opportunity to complete their home work should they wish to do so along with staff supervision.

During school holidays, the Afterschools Club stays open all day (7am – 6pm)
The children have time to interact with one another by planning their activities and games, completing art and crafts, going on outings, attending a local centre to avail of space for physical inside play.

What we’ll provide

In the Jolly Kids club we’ve created a safe, secure environment where children can be happy, form friendships and develop as individuals.

Because the children are at an age where they should be making choices for themselves we encourage ‘free play’, letting them decide what activities they’d like to take part in and what topics they would like to study for projects such as The Titanic history, Giants Causeway and the history of Antrim.

The children are also encouraged to play outdoors in all kinds of weather each day, enabling them to get active, let off steam, play team games, enjoy their surroundings and avail of what’s on offer to enhance their imagination.

What you’ll need to bring

Your child will need a change of clothes so they can get changed out of their uniform. Children will need coats to keep warm for outside play.
