After School / Holiday Care

Our new purpose built Afterschool Room opened in April 2016 catering for children aged 4 – 11 years (P1 – P7), is now located upstairs within the setting and can accomodate up to 24 children per day.

Our After School room provides a range of activities

in a comfortable, spacious and safe environment.

Arts and crafts, games and sport, story-telling and outdoor play

are just some of the activities on offer on a daily basis.

There is an opportunity for children to complete their homework alongside their peers and also quiet play.

Activities vary each day and each week to meet the children's social, physical,

intellectual, cognitive and emotional needs. Fully trained & qualified staff ensure that the children have their say too when devising the plans the incoming weeks.  Children are also involved in choosing the activities they want to see offered to them through circle time! The children choose and the staff add to the plans & provide resources required to meet the childrens needs.  

We listen to the children who attend the Afterschool Room and give them the opportunity to make their own decisions- choose their own activities and provide them with the skills they need to grow & develop into adulthood.  

Transport links are provided between the majority of local schools and Appletree Childcare

 by drivers with full enhanced Access NI Disclosures.

During school holidays, we offer the same wide range of activities from 8am to 6pm for children attending,

and we also offer a variety of excursions and trips! During school holidays children are engaged with themed days, parties & trips...afterall the school holidays are there to be enjoyed!
