Club Spraoi is a leading provider of wrap around childcare in the Cork area for children aged 4-12 years. We provide a fun, active, flexible, affordable and well organised school aged childcare programme supporting parents when most needed – before school, after school and during the holidays.
We aim to create an environment where children
are professionally cared for in a relaxing yet
Friendly, warm and welcoming to all. Just like children, each of our sites is totally unique.
One thing they all share is a fun, creative, and nurturing play environment where children are free to choose how and what they play. A place where children are actively encouraged to help choose, design and plan their own play.
We offer a healthy breakfast including cereal, toast and fruit. After breakfast, the children can choose from a range of games and activities, read a book, listen to music or simply chill out, if they so choose.
After School Clubs
We provide homework supervision, a healthy snack and an afternoon of fun filled activities including arts and crafts, messy play, baking, outdoor games, free play and much more
Our staff supervise and support the children in completing their homework Monday to Thursday.
Children have an opportunity to complete their homework under the supervision and guidance of our staff, however, we do ask that parents check their child’s homework and reading at home as they may not have time to complete it all.
We provide a heathy snack that takes into account the dietary needs and allergies of children that attend each day. Snack time takes place at approximately 3:45 and consists of a wide range of healthy foods including fruit, vegetables, sliced meats, chicken, wraps, bagels, pasta, rice, soups, salads and much more.
Snack time provides a space and opportunity to promote nutritious food and to discuss health and personal hygiene with the children. The children play a role in the planning, preparation and serving of the snacks and can use this time to prepare and experiment with foods that they have never tried before.
Structured Activities vs Free Play Time
Although structured activities are very important, daily free time for children is essential after a busy day at school. We offer a programme with a balance of both free play and structured activities.
All clubs are unique and are managed to ensure the best use of the facilities available. Club Spraoi create a safe, fun and engaging environment which fulfils children’s needs, giving them the best experience possible.
All equipment and resources are provided and children have free choice of activities. These resources are presented effectively to encourage children to follow their individual interests. Activities are suitable for all ages and are adapted for indoor and outdoor play and include a chill out zone, dressing up, scooters, arts and crafts and books.
