Our provision at Dosthill Primary Academy began operating in September 2019. We provide quality childcare for all children from the age of two years up to eleven in our nurseries and wrap around care clubs.

The two year olds nursery operates from the learning centre on the school site and has a maximum of 12 children per session, whilst the three and four year olds are in the school building and accommodates 40 children per session

Wrap around care is provided from within the school building and runs from 7:30 am until 6:30 pm Monday to Friday, term time. This is open to children who attend Dosthill Academy only. It currently operates with approx 60 places.

Holiday clubs are open to children from Dosthill and surrounding schools.

18th November 2020

The children and staff enjoyed a fun filled day raising money for Children In Need.

We played Pudsey games, painted Pudsey pictures and had a non-uniform day to raise funds. We were really proud of our children who contributed to the £450 raised in school


Dosthill Care Club


23 March 2021

During the Spring Term we have been really busy in our Care Clubs. The children have enjoyed baking bread to celebrate National Real Bread Week and then using some of the bread we made to create fossils to understand how they formed over thousands of years

We also joined in with the Dosthill Village WI Scarecrow Competition by making our own scarecrow of Carl from the film UP!

Last, but not least, we had lots of 'science fun' finding out about germs and how we keep our hands clean!

Nursery Information

In Our Pride Our Joy nurseries we follow a 'child initiated' curriculum which enables children to follow their own interests and learn through quality play, whilst being supported by qualified and experienced staff. Staff are trained to observe the children and look for 'teachable moments' in which to intervene and support the child to their next steps. 

We have full access to the outdoor areas throughout the sessions and in all weathers, so children can choose their preferred area to learn within a well thought out, enabling environment.

Parents are kept informed of their child's progress through secure online accounts which they can read, enjoy and add to so that they can play a part in the 'learning journey' their child travels along whilst with us. 

Care Club Information

Our wrap around care is provided within the security of the school building.Qualified staff plan a variety of activities for the children to participate in ranging from baking and craft, to team building challenges and sports.

Our breakfast club opens at 7:30 am and closes when school starts at 8:45 am. A choice of healthy breakfast options are available every day from our catering team. Children from nursery to year 5 are escorted to their classrooms by the same member of staff each day, to ensure consistency and familiarity. Staff are then able to pass on any messages to the class teacher.

After school, the same member of staff collects the children and takes them to club where they are registered and offered fruit and a drink before joining in with the fun and games with their friends. Club starts at 3:15 pm and operates until 6:30 pm where again, the catering team provide a snack for the children staying late.

"Both my children go to Dosthill nursery, Reggie is in the two year old room they are all amazing with him as he struggles to be around new people. Matilda is in the three years old room it’s a lot more busier but they have a lot more teachers to help. I literally couldn’t fault any of the nursery rooms my children love going and I would recommend it to anyone with children that age, they are amazing nurseries and I’ve already got my other child’s name down ready for when she is old enough."
