Dawn Cothier
Club manager/owner

Dawn has run the after School Club since it opened in January 1999 and she loves her job immensely, hence the decision to take over the business as her own in 2008.

Dawn has 4 grown up children and is 'Nana' to 4 gorgeous Gransons and 2 beautiful Grandaughters. Despite now being a teeny bit older, she seems to have forgotten to grow up and loves to be involved in the children's play.

'Nana' Dawn drives the minibus to take the children to school and pick them up again in the afternoon. She buys all the food, but best of all she gets to buy the toys, games and arts and crafts - all the fun stuff

Sammi Cothier

Sammi is Dawn's youngest daughter, and has been a part of Dashwood since she was a small child - Sammi is now a supervisor within the setting.

Whilst at club Sammi enjoys spending time in the home-corner where the children often give her a make over using our hairdresser set.

In her spare time Sammi enjoys bowling, chilling with her cat Bailey and dying her hair bright colours.
