Holiday Club at Stortford KidsOut is a fun place to be. From planting seeds that eventually grow into super sweet vegetables or fruits to making rockets that really fire and fly, we are certain your child will find their niche and thoroughly enjoy time spent in the company of other children in fun filled days during the school holidays.
The Children & The Staff
All children under 5 are cared for by qualified Early Years Practitioners, some have dual qualification in Playwork too. All children under 8 years are supported by Qualified Playwork Practitioners, as are children over the age of 8 years old. There are 5 core staff in two teams, some are Early Years trained, some Playworkers, others hold associated qualifications as Teachers Assistants or Sports & Leisure Qualifications.
Breakfast is available between 8am and 9am for those children starting at 8am. We offer a 6 hour day (starting at 9am or 10am); an 8 hour day (starting at 8am) or a full 10 hour day
We believe that play should be personally directed by the child. We provide a range of resources including equipment, art & craft, indoor, outdoor. As far as possible we encourage the children to determine their own ideas and interests; the role of staff is to suppoprt and facilitate each child to play uniquely. Staff will at times advocate certain group activities for the benefit of all the children but it does not take precedence over individual children's play choices. Whilst we will make every effort to follow the published programme, parents should be aware that it may be necessary to change the programme and we reserve the right to do so without notice. We are a small setting and are not in a position to duplicate any part of the programme in the event that an activity/event leader is unable to attend.
