Dawn until Dusk Before After School & Holiday Club

The Dawn until Dusk Ltd is a before and after-school club based at Lakeview School. It is currently situated within a classroom on the site. Our classroom is a warm and inviting play space where children relax and play safely in a homely environment cared for by friendly approachable staff.

Our opening hours are from 7.30 am until 9am and 3.10pm until 6pm. We have free flow access to the playground directly outside our classroom, with a grassy surrounding area beyond and the use of purpose built wooden equipment for climbing, balancing, jumping and imaginative play.

Our vision for the club is to mirror the home environment as closely as possible. This is achieved by creating an inviting atmosphere with colourful upholstery and soft furnishings, providing an abundance of exciting things to explore, a home corner, free flow access to toys and games, quiet reading area, access to a comfy sofa and a creation station where wonderful things transpire with all manner of craft resources.

Every effort is made to ensure the setting is inclusive for all our children by recognising the importance of extra resource's to meet individual needs. Our club is accessible to all with toilets suitable for wheelchair users and large double doors providing easy access to the outside. For children where English is an additional language we have incorporated Polish flash cards, snap, phrase books, multicultural dolls, figurines and story books. Welcome signs are displayed in different languages and regular multicultural resource's audits are undertaken. The club offers a lending library enabling families to take our resource's home over the school holidays. Consistency is provided between home, school and the club for those children with special educational needs through discussions with teachers and parent/carers and sharing our own observations. We pride ourselves in getting to know each child for the individual they are.
