Our office based in Aigburth employs six full-time members of staff who are available to take messages for site, help with the registration process, plan and prepare activities and ensure the essential paperwork is up to date for our governing bodies, like DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and OFSTED (The Office for Standards in Education). Feel free to call the office with any questions you may have for us, on 0151 306 4775.
Our staff work aim to work as closely as possible on a 1:8 ratio across our 4-12 age range. Ofsted have removed this ratio, but we aim to maintain it where possible for good practice. Across the sites our staff range in age and reflect the local communities. We employ male and female staff with different social and cultural backgrounds.
The children are encouraged to participate in a wide range of play opportunities from sports and outdoor play, including; construction with lego, duplo, blocks, stickle bricks and popoids, dressing up clothes and role play areas, quieter areas with reading and c.d.’s, art & craft sessions and outdoor play activities. We also involve the children in the planning and preparation of snacks and breaktime, sometimes using this as a cookery activity.
We encourage dialogue with our parents around their children and have a requirement to share information with schools for the Early Years Foundation Stage children (4-5 years) other ages where necessary, for our management of any special needs and other requirements.
Our hope is that the children see us as part of their extended family for the period of their time with us. Many children who were with us at the start of the venture, almost twenty years ago are now working adults. We see them and their parents at various times and are often delighted when they share their memories of Kids’ Club with us. We have continued our relationship with some of the children, by them coming to do work experience at the age of fourteen, and some actually have come back to work with us!
