Kids' City - Breakfast and after school care

Update from Kids' City - 16th July 2020

Dear Parents,

Whilst at the current time all Kids’ City services are suspended due to the Coronavirus  pandemic we will be up and running at Woodmansterne Primary School in September. We will, of course be following Government guidance that relates to breakfast and after school clubs, this is different to guidance for schools, however we will, of course, be working closely with colleagues at Woodmansterne to ensure that the club has effective risk assessments and procedures in place. Here is a link to current Department for Education guidance for your information however this may well change before the start of the new term.

At present all Kids’ City staff are furloughed however plans are in place for their return and we will be making bookings live in August. We will give advance notice when we have a definite date for bookings to go live on our website and we are working with the school to ensure that we can meet demand within Woodmansterne.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience during this unparalleled time of national emergency,

Kids’ City team

Kids' City provide our before and after school care. To access their services your children will need to be registered with Kids City, this can be done online here

The staff at Kids' City are familiar to us at Woodmansterne and they provide activities for children of all ages. Breakfast is provided and healthy snacks are available after school.

All the staff and volunteers at Kids' City undergo an enhanced DBS check and are trained and qualified in playwork.

 Services:

 Breakfast Club: 7.45am-8.55am

 Prices:

 After School Club: £14.50 / After School Club Superheroes* £19.50

 *Superheroes places can be booked in an ad hoc way, up to 3pm on the day for After School Club and up to 4pm on the day before Breakfast Club

As Superhero places are for emergency situations and ad hoc places Kids’ City need to guarantee a degree of availability. In order to do this Kids’ City cap the regular service at a level that allows some flexibility for Superhero spaces.

Our booking in period is from the start of every school term up to the second Friday of term. During this period our Lines are open until 6:00: after this time until 4.30. We require three days’ notice before a child can start. After the booking in period, we require one full weeks’ notice before a child can start, subject to places being available. For a booking to be confirmed and before a child can start, we must have received at least one payment instalment (by card or childcare voucher) or full payment and a payment schedule must be in place for the remaining fees.

- All bookings for the after school club must be made online by parents or carers

- Parents or Carers can secure a child’s place by booking online and paying the first instalment

- Parents or Carers can set up an easy monthly payment schedule

- Places are guaranteed for all children booked within the booking-in period (providing the first instalment is paid at time of booking)

Parents or Carers can call Kids City at 020 8678 5968 or send us an e-mail to info@kidscity.org.uk.

We staff our services based on staffing ratios, the safe and sensible use of space through Risk Assessment and other factors that ensure that we are able to provide a service that meets quality standards:
