About Us

The Blooming Kids Club is an after-school playdate and activity club in Dublin 4.  We offer Flexible, affordable, after-school care.

The club opened at the end of August 2016. It is run by two mums, Shivaun Gallagher (Bevin's mum) and Melanie Cross (Jamie and Marianne's mum).

The after-school club is a happy balance between a play date with friends, homework, fun activities, rest and refueling. We also offer an Infant Hour session for parents needing help with double pickups.

The club is a short supervised walk/slow scooter/cycle distance from school. We have a session for Junior and Senior infants from 1:25 to 2:25pm (ish) and a full after-school club from 2:25pm onwards. We also collect children from school clubs and activites at 3:30 pm. 

Our afternoons fly by with a mix of supervised homework, activities, free play, fresh air, fun and games.

Moving News

Due to the delays in  the move to the new school location we have also postponed our move until September 2019.

We are very fortunate to be able to remain at Old Belvedere Rugby Club for the 2018/19 school year.  The school has now announced they will be moving to Sandymount for September 2019 and we are planning to move to our new home at Clann na Gael, GAA Club.
