Afterschool Services

With over twelve years of providing holistic care to families, The elbowroom’s Youth Club is a Tusla registered after-school programme with a difference. The Youth club is suitable for all children in mainstream education. We also embrace children with additional needs who are able for group environments.

Our service aims to extend your child’s daily learning by involving them in fun activities that will positively challenge and stimulate your child both physically and psychologically. Our daily schedules have been designed in conjunction with our experienced childcare workers to help your child reach their full potential.

We offer a collection service from Dublin 7 Educate Together, St Gabriels and Stanhope St, at Junior and Senior times.
