Kool Kids are ‘outstanding’ says OFSTED – Daisy Chain Childcare
Kool Kids Out of School Club run by Daisy Chain Childcare at Haigh Road Infant School has recently been inspected by OFSTED and received the highest accolade possible – ‘outstanding’ in all areas of provision.
The inspection considered how well the club meets the needs children attending, contributes to their well-being and calibre of the leadership and management of the club.
The report states, “Children have excellent opportunities to express their opinions and lead the continual development of the club. They are fully involved in making decisions and are eager to have their voices heard at the ‘Kool Kids council meetings’. This contributes to them helping to shape the service to meet their needs and interests extremely well.”
Sue Bulmer who runs the club said, “We are delighted with the inspection report, we believe the club’s success is due to the children having an a huge input in how they spend their time at the club. They may choose an activity such as gardening, baking or model making or can play with our extensive toy library. Sometimes the children prefer to relax after school and may have a cinema afternoon or sit quietly in the cosy corner with a book. There is also a homework area as some children like to get this completed before they go home. It is entirely up to the children. The children have a resources budget and can decide between themselves how this is spent depending on current themes and interests. Our small team is well established, we have all worked at the club for over ten years and are all mums who understand the pressures of finding good childcare for working parents.”
