Happy Parents


"Laochra Academy is an absolutely fantastic service. Since starting in November, I have seen such a change in my child. She is so happy and content every day coming home from afterschool and this in turn is making the evenings after my own day's work far less stressful"


"As a parent, I wholeheartedly recommend Laochra Academy. Their program is a wonderful blend of science, sports, drama, friendship, and learning, creating an enriching experience that leaves a lasting impact for my son. "

Deirdre and Roland

"Laochra Academy has been wonderful since last autumn. Our children love the caring staff and activities. Emer and her team provide essential support for working parents. Thank you, Emer and team!


"Our two boys ( 7 and 11) have had a brilliant year with Laochra Academy. The service is very well organised by Emer and her team . We found homework to be really well supervised and the boys never had any issues with getting help when needed."


"Mickaela, Maggie, Emer and all the staff are just wonderful in Laochra Academy. We were nervous starting the boys in after school care but they all made us feel so comfortable and we knew they were in good hands."


"Excellent service. Always seems to be a great variety of activities each day. Our child loves going. Huge benefit to his overall physical activity and he makes friends too. Have been recommending to other parents. Keep up the good work!"


"My child loves going to Laochra. He loves the variety of child-led activities that are available every day. I love that he gets to play outside and use all sorts of equipment to engage his creative side. The girls who look after the kids are very positive and caring."


"My child loves attending Laochra Academy each week. He especially enjoys choosing his activities, with free play fostering creativity, language development, social skills, and cognitive benefits. Well done to Emer and the Laochra Team on a successful first year at Farnham N.S."


"A great after-school program with dedicated, energetic staff who ensure kids are well cared for in their familiar school environment. Laochra Academy offers healthy snacks and a variety of activities each evening. Excellent communication and flexibility from management. Highly recommended."
