DASH - Dobcroft After School Hours

About Us:

Infants and Juniors DASH club are located on the grounds of Dobcroft School. Infant DASH is located in the Ladybirds room for FS1/FS2 and Butterfly Room for Y1/Y2, which is located within the Infant School, we also have use of the school hall and the outside area. The location of the club allows us to offer the children indoor and outdoor play, with the FS1/FS2 area allowing for a free flow play system where the children can play inside or outside during the session and change between the two as they wish.

Junior DASH is located in the DASH mobile that is adjacent the Junior School hall, we have use of the outside area, and throughout the session can offer the children the opportunity to access the outside area.

Our aim is to provide fun, child led childcare in an environment that feels relaxed and comfortable; we also aim to provide a setting that is welcoming for parents/carers. All of our staff are trained and have full DBS checks.

What We Offer:

Fun, exciting activities, child led and child centred play, sports and outdoor play, friendly fun and creative staff.

Fast and safe transition from Class to DASH, being on site means we can collect the infant children and have them happily playing in DASH within 10 minutes of school ending.

We can also give juniors a bit of independence by allowing them to bring themselves to DASH where a member of staff will be ready to greet them.

Each evening a light snack is offered, this is varied and often the children will have an input in to what they would like with encouragement to think of healthy snacks.

Due to high demand on our regular places, we are no longer able to offer Adhoc sessions.

Activities We Provide: We provide a wide range of craft activities that are fun and creative. We set out crafts for the children each session and the children are able to freely choose resources that they would like to use from the range we have. We offer sports and outdoor play throughout the year. Imaginative play we have lots of dressing up clothes and resources that the children can use for role play, den building we have materials that the children can use to make dens both inside and outside. Board games and number games. We plan to EYFS requirements.
