Club Maidine / Trathnóna

This post is also available in: Gaeilge

We are delighted to announce that Club Maidine / Trathnóna are now providing new services within the school.  Our new services include an early morning drop off service which starts at 07:50 to 08:50 and 13:30 to 18:00 each day.  At Club Maidine / Trathnóna, we aim to provide quality, friendly, and dependable care for each child.  We cater for children aged 3 years to 12 years. Children must be pre-booked into these services to be guaranteed a space.  If you have any interest in any of these services, please contact Club Manager Shauna on 083-0137140.

Club Maidine/Trathnóna is now registered for the National Childcare Scheme (NCS).  This means that families availing of the service may be entitled to a reduction in fees.   Families who qualify for this scheme can get up to €3.75 off the hourly rate at Club Maidine / Trathnóna, depending on your financial circumstances. 

Maximum rates are payable where reckonable family income is under €26,000 per year. Rates reduce on a sliding scale as income rises but subsidies are payable in all cases where reckonable family income is less than €60,000 per year.

You can use the subsidy calculator on the NCS website to help you work out what your entitlement will be.

To apply online, you need:

  • A verified MyGovID account
  • Your children’s information, including their date of birth and PPS numbers
  • Your employment and income-related details
  • Your partner’s PPS number (your partner does not need a verified MyGovID account)
  • Your partner’s employment and income-related details

You can get more information about getting a verified MyGovID from the MyGovID website.

The NCS website has a step-by-step guide to the online application process.

Once you have registered for the NCS and have received your CHICK number, please email this to the school –
