Kickstart Childcare

Our popular breakfast, aftercare and holiday club setting is based in the grounds of St Matthew’s CE Primary School in Stretford. The club offers affordable, high quality childcare where parents, children and staff work in partnership. Our team of experienced and highly skilled professionals put the needs of children at the heart of everything they do and our robust inductions and external training mean that staff are continually developing their skills.

“The well qualified and dedicated manager is an advocate for playwork. She aspires to be outstanding and has created an oasis of calm, where children flourish and thrive through good-quality play experiences.”

In October 2016 following an inspection by the local authority, the provision was awarded the Trafford Healthy Club Award, a kitemark for promoting healthy snacks and physical activity. The setting also has a 5 star food hygiene rating. During our last Ofsted inspection in October 2017 the provision was graded GOOD in all areas with particular praise directed at the staff and children.

“Children arrive at the club with great enthusiasm, and are eager to share their daily experiences from school with staff. They play very well together across the differing age groups and older children are positive role models.”

“Children are provided with an excellent array of opportunities to be physically active. Staff use their expert knowledge and qualifications in sport coaching, to engage all children in exciting activities, such as multi-skills, football and basketball.”

The club is designed to help parents of children aged 3-11 by supplying a range of fun and games including multi-sports, themed creative crafts, content appropriate computer games and outdoor play. We provide lots to do in safe and happy spaces, enabling children to relax, socialise and develop new interests. In addition, we support children’s development by monitoring where appropriate in line with the EYFS and National Curriculum. We actively promote British Values and respect, tolerance, democracy, inclusiveness and the rule of law underpin our ethos within the club.

“Partnership working is at the heart of the club’s ethos. Parents are extremely happy with the services offered at the club, and commend the staff team on their loving and caring natures. Links with the local authority, primary school and external childcare professionals are robust.”
