Lighthouse Afterschool, Dublin 8

A Warm Welcome

Having walked home from school with one of our teachers the children spend a few minutes catching up and talking about their day to each other and to their teacher.


Homework is fully supervised by one of our qualified Montessori teachers. The children are helped if necessary and encouraged with their writing, reading and number homework. The room is a peaceful environment so the children have no problem concentrating. Our teachers have a very good knowledge of what is expected and we pride ourselves on our high standards of homework.

Following homework the children choose from a range of activities or they may prefer to relax in our comfy chill out area with a book or toy.

We have a very creative programme at Lighthouse Afterschool with regular arts and crafts activities, P.E., drama, dramatic play and performance, free play, dress up, chess, story writing, outdoor playtime and lots more.

A nutritious hot dinner is provided daily by our food provider Moons and Spoons.

Our afterschool programme runs year round during mid terms and the summer months.
