Ok just found out yesterday that the afterschool/ creche/summercamp my ds goes to for the past 3 years is closing friday week. He only goes every 3rd week after school so my x has arranged to change his 3rd week late shift back to earlies in september as there is no other place in the area that does pick up form his school!!!
My HUGE dilemma is now I am faced with no childcare arrangements for the summer or school holidays once he goes back in september!!!!!
I need somewhere for him for the summer starting from 13th july!!!! He is 7 and I know there are loads of crecehs etc in Drogheda but they dont really cater for kids his age!!!
I need help, and quickly. Has anyone any ideas of what places has older kids attending or any personal recommendations. I have no clue as i have only ever dealt with this place and his playschool which he was at for 2 years before he went to big school!
And im not critising anyone here but my persoanl preference wouldnt be for a childminder, I want a creche/summer camp facility with lots of kids to keep my ds stimulated during the summer months!
PLEASE HELP a very stressed out mammyJune 20, 2008 at 8:46 am #63165
Anyone have any persoanl dealings with The magic kingdom?? its beside the westgate gym????June 20, 2008 at 8:46 am #63166munchinParticipant
oh yummy no wonder you’re in a bad mood
i really don’t know the drogheda area all that well so others will probably have more info than me
bright horizons (well our one) run a summer camp and they also run a flexible after school / holiday service. I know there is a bright horizons in Grange Rath have no idea if location is any good to you but it’s worth a try
Good luck missus hope you get sorted soonJune 20, 2008 at 8:48 am #63167
thans munch was just reading about them on this site there but the southside just isnt of any use to me at all, my x works on the northside and its just so much hassle to get up the other side to collect him on time (am very limited moneywise so he would need to be in and out on the hour ) haha!June 20, 2008 at 9:32 am #63179
Yummy, thats a pain in the arse for you – hope youget sorted soon. Unfortunately I have no idea where you could try…, but hope you get sorted soon.June 20, 2008 at 2:04 pm #63196Taylor5Member

Ah thats great news Yummy, as far as I remember the kids have fit classes up in the gym in some mornings.
I cant remember the girls name but I think its two sisters who run it, one girls is a large build girl and might be late 30’s (think her name was Anne) but she is brilliant with kids, my ds took to her like a duck to water.
On another topic how much did the book list work out at?
