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.

“Children arrive at this club happy to see their friends and the staff. Friendly staff welcome children into the club enthusiastically. This makes children feel settled and safe.”

Ofsted, May 2023

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 May 2023, the provision was graded as MET in all areas with particular praise directed at the staff and children.

“Children benefit a lot from using the outdoor space at the club. Children demonstrate real enthusiasm while playing team games with their friends and staff.”

Ofsted, May 2023

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.

“Parents say that staff go above and beyond to make sure their child settles and has the support they need.”
