Following on from our earlier post, we have been contacted this afternoon by Lakeside Primary School and have been informed that there has been a delay to the building work that is being undertaken on school site. 


This means that unfortunately we are unable to open the wrap around club as planned on Monday 14th September. We now have a revised open date of the beginning of October, subject to all work being completed.


Breakfast and After School Club will still reopen as planned on Monday 14th September. 


Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. 


We look forward to seeing you all very soon! 



We are delighted to announce that Dragonflies will be reopening for Breakfast, Wrap Around and After School care from Monday 14th September.


We are aware that Lakeside Primary School will be staggering the start and finish time of the school day and nursery sessions and we are committed to working with parents and carers to support your childcare needs in line with these changes.


We look forward to seeing you all very soon!

Important Information for Parents/Carers - COVID-19 CLUB CLOSURE


Dear Parents/carers, 


Due of the continued spread of COVID-19 and the current restrictions in place by the Government to reduce the spread of the virus, at the end of last week we sadly made the decision to close The Dragonflies Club. 

Last week we took on a different role supporting Keyworker parents/carers who are continuing to provide essential services. We would like to thank the NHS and Keyworker staff who are working so hard to keep us safe in these unprecedented times. 


The decision to close Dragonflies has not been an easy one to make. Please be assured that this is a temporary closure and as soon as things return to some level of normality we will reopen.

Updates will be posted on our Facebook page during the period of closure. Emails to will continue to be monitored and you can contact us on 02920 807183 between the hours of 8.00 am - 6.00 pm Monday - Friday with any queries. 

We look forward to seeing you all soon, but in the meantime, stay safe.
