At our after school clubs all the materials and ingredients are provided for the children and included in the enrolment fee.
We also provide a drink and snack for them, if your child has any allergies it is essential that you provide us with this information in your online account. If you would prefer them to bring their own snack that’s absolutely fine, just send it along in their school bag.
Please note that to avoid any potential allergy issues, nuts are not permitted at any of our activities, this includes any snacks that may contain peanuts.
For our art and animations clubs you can send your child with an old t-shirt or apron if you like.
For our cooking clubs your child’s completed recipe will be sent home with them in a foil container, they are welcome to bring an apron if you like.
To download our Kids Arts Academy Parents Information Guide please click here. This guide contains our Safeguarding Policy, Complaints Procedures, and also includes Ofsted’s ‘Requirements for the Childcare Register: childcare providers on non-domestic or domestic premises’.
Both of our venues were inspected by Ofsted in 2013 and have received their stamp of approval. As a childcare provider on the Voluntary Childcare Register it is only possible to receive a pass or fail, both inspections were a really postive experience and on both occasions we passed successfully.
We take great pride in the quality of service and care that we provide at the Kids Arts Academy and always welcome feedback from parents and children.
Below is some of the information which is also included in the Kids Arts Academy Parents Information Guide.
Please ensure that if your child needs to be administered medication during their time with us that you have given us full details and completed a ‘Consent to administer medication’ form – you can request this by contacting us or download it by clicking here.
Also, please ensure that you have given us the full details on your registration form of any special requirements your child has.
In the event that your child has an accident during their time with us, upon collection of your child, the relevant parent must sign an incident report form so that they are immediately and fully aware of anything that may have occurred to their child that day.
We recognise that parents may want to be able to contact their children during their time at the Kids Arts Academy but we would prefer your children not to bring mobile phones because of the possibility of them being lost, stolen or damaged. Any mobile phones that have a camera must be handed in to one of the adults for the duration of the day.
There are a number of reasons why a child may remain uncollected at the end of the day, perhaps if a parent is delayed or confused about who is collecting or about the time of collection.
Should you be delayed in the collection of your child please call us on 07967 653946
However, if we are not contacted and a child remains uncollected then we will follow the below procedure:
- We will attempt to contact you using the child details information.
- At least two adults will remain with the child until collected.
- We will not allow the child to return home alone or with an unauthorised adult unless we have your permission.
- If after two hours no one arrives to collect the child and we have been unable to contact anyone by telephone, we will call the appropriate local authorities.
