What We Do

The services at Lily’s are tailored to meet the needs of primary school children in the local area, ensuring the highest standard of childcare during school terms, midterm breaks, Easter holidays, summer holidays, and more. The centre offers a variety of activities, including sports, outdoor play, construction with Lego, arts and crafts, football, hip-hop dancing, junior yoga, and exercise through play. To ensure the children’s nutritional needs are met, healthy meals, including breakfast and dinner, are provided each day, catering to any special dietary needs.

Homework Club

The children are supervised as they do their homework by our qualified childcare staff. This has many benefits to both parents and children, some of which include

  • Children are supported with their homework
  • Parents and guardians spending time with their children without attending to homework
  • Parents and guardians informed of any learning issues with their children during homework
  • Homework completed on Fridays keeping weekends free for other activities

The Walking School Bus

Children walk to local schools from Lily’s as the “walking school bus”. A walking school bus is a healthy, environmentally conscious, safe and fun way to travel to and from school. Staff walk children to school along routes approved by the Local Authority and Garda Siochána.

There are many benefits from the walking school bus, some of which include

  • The increase in physical activity for children
  • The benefits obtained from fresh air and exercising outdoors
  • The learning of valuable road safety skills by the children
  • The reduction in traffic around the schools and local area
  • The reduction in pollution from car omissions in the local area

Breakfast Club

Starting the day right is crucial for young minds. Our Breakfast Club provides a variety of healthy and balanced options to ensure that every child begins their day with the energy they need for learning and play. From whole grains and fruits to dairy and protein-rich foods, our breakfast menu is carefully designed to cater to the nutritional needs of growing children. This not only fuels their physical activities but also aids their concentration and learning throughout the day.

Hot Dinners

Understanding the busy schedules of working parents, we provide hot, nutritious dinners for the children in the evening. These meals are not just about filling tummies; they are about nourishing young bodies and minds. Our hot dinners include a balanced mix of vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats. We prioritise fresh, high-quality ingredients and prepare meals that are both delicious and wholesome.

At Lily’s, we also recognise and cater to individual dietary needs and preferences. Whether it’s food allergies, intolerances, or specific dietary requirements, our kitchen staff is equipped to provide meals that are safe and enjoyable for every child.
