Child Care Provision

Our Beehive Club and Pre-school operate from the Lifelong Learning Centre, Market Lane, Dunston. The Centre is based within the grounds of the Kingsmeadow and Dunston Hill Community Primary School campus. We are able to offer childcare provision from 7.45am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday. The care and educational needs of our families are our priority.

We operate from a main playroom with access to kitchen and toilet facilities. The club also has access to additional rooms within the Centre as well as a secure outdoor area.

We promote social, intellectual, physical and emotional development of children. Our team are all highly qualified with NVQ level 4 and are subject to DBS clearance.

Out of School

The Beehive Club provides quality and affordable ‘wrap around care’ and breakfast facilities between the hours of 7.45am–9.00am and 3.15pm–6.00pm. The provision also has access to fixed adventure play equipment within Dunston Hill Community Primary School.

Early Years

Our pre-school provides a fun, happy, caring and secure learning environment for 2-4 year olds. We believe that all children are very unique and special in their own way. We have a designated room with appropriate facilities and resources to cater for the needs of this age range.

We are able to assist you to find out if you are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare or alternatively you could contact Gateshead Services on 0191 433 5118. See below for further information.
