Kids Like Us

Kids Like Us is an independent breakfast and afterschool club at The Southwater Infant Academy, where we have been providing childcare for over 15 years. We are proud of our reputation in the school community and to share with you that we have twice received the highest available Ofsted rating.

We are open in the mornings from 7.45am where the children are offered breakfast and cared for until their class goes into school for registration. In the afternoons we collect the children from their class and they remain with us until collected, up until 6pm.

We provide fruit and a snack during the afternoon and all children are encouraged to play outside whenever the weather permits. A wide range of group games, crafts and activities are planned every afternoon which the children love to join in with, so much that they soon make it known if you have arrived too early to collect them!

This is what the children and parents told us they enjoy about Kids Like Us:
“I like all the different snacks we have!” Reception pupil
“I like that we get to play all different outside activities” Year 2 pupil
“The staff are friendly, professional, and great with all of the kids - highly recommended!”Parent
“There is always lots of fun activities for the kids to do and the staff are really kind and caring, going above and beyond to ensure the kids are well looked after and have plenty to do.” Parent

Keeping our club Covid-secure has of course meant some changes to how we do things. For example, in line with current government guidance the children are kept in their year group bubbles, but we continue to provide them with the same wide range of opportunities, toys and activities that they enjoyed prior to the pandemic. In addition to this we have adopted an enhanced cleaning regime and all staff now take twice weekly lateral flow tests.
We value the importance of a good relationship with parents and have an active facebook page where we regularly share updates about what the children have been doing at club and where parents have shared their reviews.

Places tend to fill up fast at Kids Like Us so if you would like further information about our club please take a look at our facebook page or website , email us at or call for a chat on 01403 730050. We look forward to hearing from you!
