Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow provides afterschool and holiday childcare in St Therese of Lisieux PS. Sleepy Hollow has been providing wraparound childcare since 2004 within leading primary schools across NI. All of our wraparound units are fully registered with HSC Trusts in exactly the same way as our Day Nursery is. In partnership with schools we want to ensure that we are meeting the needs of working parents in both an affordable and practical way. The Department of Education wants schools to play a larger role in the childcare markets by allowing use of school facilities for wraparound and holiday care at times when the school is not using them.

Sleepy Hollow have been specialising in school age childcare for 15 years operating on school premises.  We work with leading and dynamic schools who are forward thinking in order to meet the needs of their pupils and families. We have carried out a lot playwork research and feel this model of childcare best suits school age children.

Professor Peter Gray, Boston University recently addressed the International Play Conference in Limerick in 2018, stating that schools should offer play opportunities and provisions which aren’t solely based on extra curricular competitive sports or exam based music tuition.  He said that this model of wraparound care in schools is the way forward and linked more play opportunities to the wellbeing of children as they become young adults.  He personally congratulated us in being leaders in our field.

Sleepy Hollow provides out of school camps during all school holidays and exceptional closures.  These are available to both our regular clients and those who just need holiday or temporary childcare.  The camps are much more than holiday schemes.  We follow fun curriculums and ensure each day is made up of play activities, baking, sensory play, group games, creative activities as well as the opportunity for child led play.  We also offer fun and exciting trips during summer periods.
