Clubs & After School Care
The Pre-Prep teaching day finishes at 3.30pm, after which the children are free to be collected and taken home. However, children are able to stay later and we have a range of clubs and after school activities to keep them busy, entertained and happy!
Story Time: 3.40 – 4.00 pm
If staying until 4.00pm, which coincides with the end of the Prep School day, the children are able to enjoy quiet story time activities within their year groups and are offered fresh fruit, milk or water as a refreshing snack.
Late Duty Provision: 4.00 – 5.20 pm
We offer a ‘Late Duty’ facility for parents who wish for their children to stay at school later. Late Duty, which is held in the Pre-Prep middle area, enables children from Reception to Year 2 to come together, under the close supervision of Pre-Prep staff, to enjoy a range of fun, play activities to help them relax and unwind at the end of a busy day. Towards the end of Late Duty, at approximately 4.50pm, the children are offered a healthy snack and drink, before preparing themselves to go home at 5.20pm. No pre-booking is required and parents are free to collect their children at any time from Late Duty. Children must ‘sign out’ with a member of staff before leaving.
Ballet lessons are offered after school once a week and are available for all of the Pre-Prep children to take part in should they wish to. Organised, and professionally taught by Miss Natalie from The East Haddon School of Dance, there is an additional charge for these sessions. For further details please click the link below.
Tennis lessons, provided by Dallington Lawn Tennis Club, are available after school on selected days each week. These sessions, for which there is an additional charge, are offered to our Year 1 and Year 2 children.
If you wish your child to have private tennis lessons at school please directly contact Dallington Tennis Club.
