Learn More about us


Can I book and pay for my sessions later?

Yes. Our flexible booking platform will allow you to pre-book sessions in advance. However, all sessions must be paid for in full, in advance of your child attending. You will receive an email reminding you that payment is due. If you fail to pay in the required time frame, the system will automatically cancel your booking and release your session/s back in to the system.

Do I have to book the whole week/month/term?

No. Our system is very flexible and, subject to availability, you can book for individual sessions or for the whole of the school year. It’s completely up to you.

What are the payment options?

The easiest and most convenient way to pay is by debit/credit card. Our booking system allows you to either pay via card per booking or if you are booking 20 sessions or more, you can pay weekly using your card. You can also add credit to  your account and use this credit to make bookings. In very exceptional circumstances cash can be accepted; you must pay this to the Coordinator at the school. This amount will be added to your account and you can then book the required sessions and use this credit for payment at checkout.

What if I need to cancel or amend my booking?

No problem. If you wish to cancel a booking, you are able to do this yourself via your account dashboard and receive credit on your account. To amend a booking you have previously made you simply cancel it and re-book the new session/date that you require.

Can you book a session by text, email or over the phone?

We CANNOT accept bookings that are requested by text, email or by phone.  You will need to log in to your account and make the booking there.

What shall I do if I need someone else to collect my child?

Your child will not be able to leave with anyone that is not listed on your account as an authorised contact. You can add people by logging in to your account dashboard and selecting ‘Child Details’. Here you can add up to four emergency contacts and persons authorised to collect your child.

Can I use my National Childcare Scheme award towards the cost of sessions?

Yes indeed. We operate the  National Childcare Scheme; all you need to do is email the Coordinator with your CHICK details and we will register your child for the scheme.

What Our Happy Parents Say

"Club Spraoi is amazing my girls really enjoyed going and would ask to go even on the days, I was not at work. The food menu is awesome and the help with the homework was fab and most importantly the girls had so much fun and would often bring home bits they made and Ewa and the team were so kind and great to communicate with."

“Our daughter aged 10 loves Club Spraoi. She says that it is fun and also she can do her homework there, so that she can have a nice relaxing time when she gets home ! She loves the activities and the food, and has a great time playing with her friends.”

H & BClub Spraoi Our Lady of Lourdes

“My daughter attends Club Spraoi for 2 hours 3 days a week and she absolutely loves her time here. She looks forward to going to school when she knows she has Spraoi on that dat. They seem to do a lot of make and do activities and appear to be well stocked with a choice toys and equipment. They also ensure plenty outside play and exercise when the weather suits, it is a very inclusive environment and seems to be very enjoyable. There is also help with homework when the girls bring their folders with them. I highly recommend this service for safe and happy after school care.

“My son has attended Club Spraoi at the Rochestown Educate Together National School for the past two years (Junior and Senior Infant) and our experience has been very positive. Aine and all the Club staff are caring, professional and very accommodating; they have helped my child to develop his social skills and learn new things. My son always has great fun when attending Club Spraoi and is actually sad to leave when we collect him from Club. As parents, it is a great relief to know that our child is safe and cared for in a welcoming and supportive environment. Many thanks to Aine and all the staff members.

“I couldn't recommend Club Spaoi enough. My kids adore the afterschool program and never want to leave. Aine and the girls are fab and give such individual attention to all the kids there. It's a lovely, fun environment. Thanks to all the Club Spraoi gang.
