Kids In Charge (Our Lady of Lourdes)

Our Breakfast and Afterschool Club is run inside the schools this allows children to start their mornings in an environment that is familiar to them and is also just a short walk away from their classrooms, this allows for a stress free and organised flow to their day.

The morning starts with a well laid table of hot and cold food choices. Fresh fruit is also offered each morning. We use music to provide a calm atmosphere and a range of activities including; Homework support, Arts and Crafts, Reading and Group games.

At afterschool club a healthy snack (hot and cold) is also provided each day. Our childcare professionals will encourage children to try an array of activities such as Dance, ICT, Drama, Gardening, Cooking, Multi sports and Park visits.

Each child has a special member of staff assigned as a key person for both you and your child to work with to help develop their thinking skills, which in turn helps them to consider their actions and choices. Our dedicated, experienced team all work directly with the needs of the parents, schools and children to develop ‘Childcare you can trust’.

Our staff are bouncing with energy ready to give your child a fun filled experience! Don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Education Offer


At Kids in Charge we believe that each child must be given the opportunity to achieve and be included. All children access a full range of activities to develop and learn through play. We acknowledge that some children with SEND may require extra support in order to access the activities provided. We are committed to work alongside parents and carers to share information useful to support their child’s development while at the club.

The club is located in the Benedict building at Our Lady of Lourdes school on the grounds of the school. The hall has separate activity areas which offer a range of fine and gross motor skills activities. The hall has free-flow into the playground where children have access to active games.

Passageways are kept clear at all times to follow health and safety regulations and facilitate children’s mobility.

Toilet and washing hands facilities are easily accessible.

There is also a disabled toilet and wheelchair ramp.

Identifying children's needs

We believe in early identification of difficulties and we will consult with parents and carers to support those children who are experiencing difficulty with their development.

We work closely with the Local Authority Early Years and Childcare Improvement Team (EYCIT) who may be involved to give advice on suitable strategies to accommodate children’s needs within the club. This is done with written consent from parents and carers.

We have a statutory responsibility to Safeguard children and we may work with the following agencies whenever required: CAF Team; Early Intervention and Social Care.

The agencies may also be involved in the child’s transition to other settings or to school.

When a child has a recognised condition or ongoing medical needs, relevant information is sought from parents and carers on admission and kept in the child’s confidential folder. The setting will follow the relevant guidelines for data protection and confidentiality.

Support and training for parents and carers

The setting has an ‘open door’ policy, offering informal chats as necessary and formal discussion by appointment. Information is shared with parents and carers through the use of newsletters, parent’s evaluation and keyperson meetings.
