BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Dale House School offers care for children before school, after school, and in the school holidays. Clubs are run by our own team of well qualified, dedicated staff. This offers parents the flexibility and security of knowing that all children will be well cared for by established members of staff, who are qualified teachers or Nursery Nurses, and have been trained in Safeguarding, Child Protection and First Aid.
The Dale House Late Club and Holiday Club have received Quality Assurance Awards from Kirklees Early Years Service. A Gold Healthy Choice Award has also been awarded for snacks etc.

- Gold Healthy Food Award (Kirklees 2015)
The Early Club service runs each school day during term time. It opens at 8.00am and closes at 8.25am, when children are taken to their classrooms to be with their teachers from 8.30am. In Early Club each day children are served a drink (milk, juice or water) and a light snack such as toast. This will be served between 8am and 8.20am. The charge for this service is £2 per day and parents will receive a bill at the end of each month, as with Late Club fees.
The Late Club runs after school each day during term time only. Children are registered into the Late Club at 3.30pm and can be collected anytime before 6.00pm. Children staying after 4.45pm will be served a light snack and a drink of water, milk or juice. A charge of £5.25 per hour (or part hour) is charged for the use of this facility. Late Club fees are payable on a monthly basis. Bills are issued at the end of the month in which the charge applies.
Occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, parents may be unable to collect their child on time and have not been able to notify the school in advance. There is no need to worry in such circumstances. For our parents’ peace of mind, children who have not been collected by 3.30pm will automatically be registered into the Late Club. (Please note that the first hour fee will apply from 3.30pm, for however short a time).
During the school holidays, with the exception of all Half Terms, Bank Holidays and the first two weeks of August, we run a special Holiday Club. The Holiday Club is open from 8am to 5pm. (Please note there is no Late Club during Holiday Club). Children will be offered drinks and light refreshments mid-morning and mid-afternoon, but must bring a packed lunch each day.
The cost of using the Holiday Club is:
Full Day Rate: £25.00 per day (siblings £16.50)
Early Pick Up by 3pm: £19.00 per day (siblings £16.50). (An extra £6 will be payable on the day for children not collected by 3pm).
Half Day Rate: £16.50 per day (siblings £16.50)
(Mornings 8.00am to 12.30pm / Afternoons 12.30pm to 5.00pm)
The cost of any outings, i.e. bowling, cinema, play-gyms, etc., is additional to the above. Parents will be informed beforehand of the cost of these events.
Information sheets and booking forms for the Holiday Club are issued approximately two weeks before the start of the holiday period. We ask that parents complete and return their form as quickly as possible in order to secure their child’s place.
