Why Your Children Should Join Us?





My two boys Trevor, aged nine and Russell aged seven have been attending the Columbus Book Club since its inception. Both boys love reading and look forward to their Monday Book Club experience. The teachers help them to choose challenging books. They chat to them about the content along with the other kids in their group. They encourage them to write book reviews and of course they love the stories read to them by the


My daughter and son both attend Columbus Club, to say they enjoy it is an understatement. They attend on a Monday and Tuesday after school. I originally thought that this may have made their day too long this is absolutely not the case. The atmosphere at Columbus is unique, warm, friendly, kind and caring and most

importantly each child moves at their own pace guided with genuine encouragement. Their approach has truly given my kids confidence and enthusiasm when it comes to reading, maths and Irish. They truly enjoy reading and the enjoyment they get from finishing one book and starting another is a joy to watch. Their confidence and understanding of maths has grown considerably. Most importantly they get their homework done!


Our two daughters began in the Summer Columbus Club and when our eldest daughter, now 8, needed help with her reading we started her in the Monday reading class. That was about three years ago and she is now rarely without a book. What Anne Ruane and her staff achieved for her is rare and invaluable; a genuine love for books and reading and it was all done invisibly with great patience, love and skill. The Club has a really comprehensive library and both our children skip there happily every week. I could not recommend the Club more highly.
