About Us
Our main aim is and always will be to provide 'Good Quality, Affordable and Fun Childcare'





Dashwood Out of School Club first opened its doors in January 1999, under the management of Dawn Cothier. Originally the club was owned by Dashwood After School Club Management Committee until Dawn became the owner in 2008. 

Our aim to begin with in 1999 was to provide good quality, affordable after school childcare for working and studying parents. We quickly found that local families and their children also desired a safe and welcoming environment to play.

Our main aim is and always will be to provide good quality , affordable and fun childcare for children aged 3-11 years.  

Within the first year of being registered we found we needed to increase our registration from 16 to 24 children. In 2005 we needed to increase this further and we are now registered to care for 32 children per session. Along the way we also discovered a demand for a Breakfast Club and Holiday Play-scheme. Therefore we are now open from 7.30am to 6pm* for the majority of the year.
