School's Out NI After School and Holiday Childcare

School's Out is an independent, private after school childcare facility that offers a pick-up service from Loughries Integrated Primary School.

Having lived in the local area all my life and myself and my family having been past pupils of Loughries, I feel like I have a close connection with the school. I was keen to be able to provide this childcare service for the children and parents of the school and am delighted with the number of parents who have already availed of the service.

School's Out NI is based less than 1 mile away from Loughries, a 2 minute drive in the car! We are registered with social services, so parents can rest assured that we meet and often exceed the required minimum standards. At School's Out we offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere where your children can relax after a long day at school. School's Out is a Playwork based setting which means we believe that play is extremely important to children's learning and development. We promote child-centred, free-play and encourage children to use their imaginations when in our facility.

Advantages to school based childcare facility:

  • Short drive to the facility (based beside Chuckles Nursery, within Castle Gardens P.S school grounds)
  • Convenient location for parents, close to Loughries I.P.S
  • Friendly and relaxed atmosphere where children choose what they want to do each day
  • Children have the opportunity to mix with children from other schools and make new friends
  • Flexible with bookings - last minute and casual bookings welcome!
