Childcare & Activities
Each child has a keyworker, responsible for ensuring their individual needs are met and that there is good continuity of care between home, Kids Collective and school. We take great pride in our curriculum training, allowing us to plan and offer super daily activities for the children, geared to all ages and interests, as well as offering free half-termly workshops such as First Aid, Tae Kwon Do and KiddyCook cookery workshops. Please see our website for details of future events and our current newsletter. We also have an extensive range of equipment, including IT, freely available to the children every day. Homework areas are offered and supervised although staff cannot help children with their homework.
We work closely with the school staff daily to ensure continuity of care for children and ensure information is passed on. We offer daily verbal feedback to parents of their child’s time with us, we have notice boards and occasionally send notices home, as well as emailing regular e-bulletins, surveys and of course our own website. All Kids Collective policies are available in Club for any parent to read.
Please contact Kids Collective directly for up to date details. These are reviewed annually.
