Why Kidsstop?

Since 2007, Kidsstop has been providing a flexible, quality care and educational environment for 2-12 year olds.

With our “Outstanding” Ofsted report and continuous positive feedback from parents and children, we like to think we’re doing a pretty good job of helping children develop their full potential.

Our Focus

Education through play

All our experienced staff are qualified to Level 3 in Early Years & Play Work and above which means that we are all able to create educational, enjoyable and structured learning programmes for your children.

It all starts with an individualized learning plan (that we compose after consulting parents) and we adapt and improve this as your child develops and we feedback daily. We feel that this collaborative approach is the best way to achieve a holistic approach to your child’s education.

Activities & Outings

Activities & Outings are a key part of our offering and we work hard to organize and facilitate as many educational activities as possible.

Whether this means an adventure to the local park, or learning what goes on at the local shop, or even activities on site such as messy play and using computers, we are always looking for safe, enjoyable ways to entertain and broaden the horizons of the children in our care.

Friendships

We know that friendships formed in early years can go on to have a major impact on a childs life, so it’s important for us that we help friendships and comradery develop within our play settings.

We encourage interaction and collaboration as often as possible, to help your child become familiar and comfortable with their surroundings and their classmates.

Development

Ultimately, the reason your children attend our Early Years setting is to develop, both mentally, physically and socially.

From the outset we are proud to not only create a personalized learning journey, but also to assign a key worker who will play a core role in helping your little one blossom into a confident, happy child.

We encourage all parents to follow their progress via our regular feedback (over coffee meetings and our open door policy) and to take an active part in working with us to overcome challenges your little one may be facing.

Our Facilities

We are very lucky to have such a variety of good quality facilities across our sites.

Due to our close links with well-funded schools, our children are able to benefit from great access to vast green areas and outdoor space including dedicated playgrounds as well as indoor spaces such as a sports hall and ICT suite.

Our Ethos

At KidsStop we create a “free ethos” where children feel relaxed and at home which in turn allows them to be themselves and learn. We plan and provide wholly for each and every child, and this is what encourages them to flourish into “well rounded individuals “

What The Parents Say

Your Children

It’s all well and good to talk about our great facilities, our communication and involvement with parents and the superb Early Years Foundation Stage framework we offer and adhere to. But it’s important to let the children know what they can expect from us too.

  • A fun and enjoyable environment in which to learn and discover
  • Friendly and approachable staff members who are passionate about helping children develop and blossom
  • Involvement in making decisions that affect them and the other children
  • Lots of time interacting with friends and developing social skills as well as technical ones
  • Exposure to other children that are well-behaved and act as role-models to the younger ones – setting a positive example and providing guidance through demonstration.

The safety of your children is of course a primary concern -not just whilst in our care, but outside of it too. That’s why we put such a big emphasis on children being part of managing their own risks and learning these skills in a safe, managed environment.

It’s a proven fact that happier children do better in school and in life in general. So it’s imperative to us that we keep your child entertained and happy throughout their time with us. We work hard to encourage their growth and development and to be ‘facilitators’ in an enabling environment.

Each and every child should have a voice because they are all individuals. Their like and dislikes, favourite activities and hobbies all help to create the person they will become as they grow up. We’re often commended on our willingness to listen and work with the expressions of individuality that our children present.

Your children’s education and welfare are our main priorities
