"We aim to provide your child with a safe, intellectually stimulating and fun environment. Your child will enjoy learning through play to develop their physical, social and emotional skills"
Garforth Kids Club Ltd was established in 1997 and through much parental demand, has expanded to become a very popular chain of Out of School Groups. We provide care and lots of activities for 3-11 year olds. Children are supervised by professional and experienced staff, in cheerful and secure locations. Children are safely escorted to and from their classrooms by club staff with most of our settings actually being based within school grounds for parents extra piece of mind. We open before and after school, and run an all day playscheme during the holidays. We have established very close partnerships with local schools.
Qualified and experienced staff provide a relaxed, but stimulating environment for all children using our settings.
Garforth Kids’ Club Ltd is a family run (2 families) independent local company founded by Yvonne Huntley and Christine Roberts and also now co-managed by Ben Roberts. Yvonne is an ex-teacher with qualifications including a Bachelor of Education Degree, Christine is Level 3 Qualified in Playwork and Ben is NVQ level 3 qualified in Childcare and has a Business Management Degree. Yvonne and Christine were also selected to worked as "Quality Advisors" for Leeds City Council in order to help other settings achieve the quality of care which is provided in our settings. All our management team have extensive experience of setting up, working in, and managing many different childcare settings including Day Care Nurseries, Pre-school, Out of school clubs and Holiday Playschemes.
Our highly qualified and experienced staff team are dedicated to the development of children in our care, and each child's play experience is based around their individual developmental needs. The staff have all been DBS (Police) checked and a First Aider is always close at hand. All our settings operate a Key person system whereby children are allocated a staff member who will support every child's needs, and respond to parents at the end of each day. Staff are more than happy to discuss children's individual progress with parents at any time.
All settings work within the guidelines of the Early Years Foundation Stage (the same as schools) in order that all children receive seamless care and education. Support and liaison are provided by Leeds City Council's Early Years Service and Childcare Support.
The settings are all Ofsted registered and are inspected, not only to ensure that we meet all of the required guidelines but also to enable parents to claim Tax Credits.
