Infants and Juniors DASH club are located on the grounds of Dobcroft School, Infant DASH is located in the Discovery Centre, 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 a free flow play system, where they can choose to play inside or outside during the session and change between the two as they wish.

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.
