We operate 7 different centres, 6 in Athlone and 1 in Mullingar.

Our Afterschool Services are funded through the National Childcare Investment Programme, under the Affordable Childcare Scheme from the Dept. of Children and Youth Affairs. The Services are also funded and supported by the Dept. of Employment Affairs & Social Protection, and by Westmeath County Childcare Committee.

Our After-School services, operates from the start of the school year until July, and includes full day camps at Halloween, Easter and in July, when the schools are closed. After School services are available, 4 hours a day from Monday-Friday during the school year, and includes a homemade hot snack, homework supports with qualified teachers, art and cultural activities, sports, fun and games.

We have permanent staff in each of our premises, plus staff employed on work experience programmes such as Community Employment and TUS. Our staff are highly qualified up to QQI Level 8 and have years’ experience in working with Children and Young people and are Garda vetted.

Our services are coordinated by our Childcare Services Manager, Sinead Casey.
