Cambridge Kids Club (CKC) is a specialist wrap-around childcare provider for Cambridge. We currently operate 8 out of school clubs offering a mixture of breakfast, afterschool and holiday clubs. All of our clubs have been rated “GOOD” by Ofsted in Autumn 2016/ Spring 2017. Our aim is to deliver the highest standard of care, at an affordable price.
We started our after school club at Bourn Park Primary Academy in September 2014. Our aim is to extend this service to a breakfast club as soon as feasibly possible. We will look at setting up a holiday club if there is sufficient demand. Currently children attending Bourn use the Meridian setting for Holiday club.
We operate throughout the school year to enable parents to pursue their careers safe in the knowledge that their child is in a happy and secure environment.

What the Club offers
Fully supervised care at the end of the school day for children from Bourn Academy and surrounding villages ages 4-14 years. A member of staff is available to help the children with any homework or project work although our intention is to provide a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Children may participate in arts and crafts, play games, read or chat amongst themselves in a safe and secure environment. Planned activities are age group related. A nutritious snack will be provided consisting of drinks, savouries, sandwiches and fruit.
We are a self-directed PLAY based provision. “Play is a process that is freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated. That is, children and young people determine and control the content and intent of their play, by following their own instincts, ideas and interests, in their own way for their own reasons.” This is very different from the classroom environment, which can be (and sometimes needs to be) a very structured environment. We believe that after a long day at school or term of learning, children want to come to us to have fun and freedom in an unstructured self motivated way. Children will learn other skills that they need in the growing up process, but in a different way to school.
Children are more than welcome to attend a holiday play scheme at any of our other settings.
Parents are at liberty to spend time with their children at any time during the sessions provided that it does not unsettle the child. The Club Leader, the Out-of-Schools Club Co-ordinator and the Proprietor are always ready to discuss your child's progress and deal with any concerns you may have.
Each month we circulate a newsletter providing parents with up-to-date information on what is going on within the Cambridge Kids Club and matters of general interest.
The Club has formulated a set of policies relating to its approach towards issues such as anti-discrimination, child abuse, staff selection etc. Please feel free to ask for a set of these policies that will, in any case, be provided upon your enrolling your child.
Parents are encouraged to offer their time to take a session at the Club should they have any expertise or special interest which the children might enjoy hearing about.
Should you wish us to collect your child from school we can do so either by one of our staff on foot, in our minibuses or a member of staff in one of our own cars. There is a reduced fee if parents of children aged 11+ consider that they are safe to make their own way to the Club. We may consider a drop back service on special requests.
