Redwood Kids Club

About our Club

Redwood Kids’ Club is located in the main hall at Waddington Redwood Primary Academy.  It provides after school care for children from Reception to Y6. It is managed by the Voluntary Management Committee, which meets regularly and is responsible for making decisions.  These decisions are concerned with finances, policies and ensuring that all requirements of its registration are met.

We undergo a regular OFSTED inspection from which we receive an inspection report; a copy is on display on our notice board for reference.  The day-to-day running of the club is the responsibility of the Club Co-ordinator who ensures your children is provided with a secure and stimulating environment.

Our Aims:

  • To provide good quality and affordable childcare;
  • To employ qualified, experienced and local staff;
  • To provide a variety of play opportunities within an equal opportunities framework;
  • To provide a friendly, relaxed and creative environment in which the children feel happy and secure;
  • To encourage each child to participate in a selection of varied activities;
  • To work in partnership with parents/carers, the school and the local community;
  • To ensure that our procedures are followed and their effectiveness evaluated.
