Our after-school club provides a new and fascinating alternative to sports-themed clubs and other after-school activities for children. This specific after-school programme is ideal for children aged 6 + who attend 1st to 6th Class. If your child is a curious explorer with a thirst for knowledge about their past, why not let them delve into the fascinating world of archaeology? Our clubs are run during the school-term, and they introduce children to the mysteries and adventures of our past in a fun, practical and hands-on way.
We use an ‘Indiana Jones’ approach to ensure your child gets a balance of time, outdoors and indoors. As well as taking part in excavations and exciting activities, children will also arrive home with an abundance of new and quirky knowledge about their ancient ancestors past.

We have a team of qualified and very experienced teachers and archaeologists who have worked on numerous excavations throughout Ireland. Our staff are mature, friendly, outgoing and have lots of experience when working with children – SIA staff are fully Garda Vetted.
The friendly environment and relaxing atmosphere of the junior archaeologists club allows the children to enjoy this unique experience by participating within groups, carrying out archaeological tasks and solving puzzles in a fun and creative manner.
COVID-19 Operating Procedures and Guidelines:
Due to the COVID-19 government restrictions we have had to alter the format of our Afterschool Club. We intend to adhere to and follow the guidelines and measures in-line with the public health restrictions.
The health and wellbeing of our afterschool club children and staff is paramount. We have implemented COVID-19 prevention and control measures to minimise risk to workers and the children attending our Afterschool Club. Our resumption will be in-line with the recommendations from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, Guidance for Youth Work Organisations. We can operate multiple groups of 15 if sufficient space and strict public health protocols are in place, there should be no mixing between groups.
