History

Kidz Star Club opened on the 4th July 2011 and received a Good Ofsted inspection in its last inspection in October 2016. It is run by Pippins Pre-School and Nursery Early Years Educators. Our name and logo was designed by the club children following a competition where the children voted on their winner designed by Kai Pickard.

Objectives

Children at Kidz Star Club are encouraged to be independent, select resources, make decisions, errors and choices by initiating their own play. We promote kinaesthetic learning through discovery and experience by offering adult-directed, freely chosen or child initiated activities.

We focus on developing children’s existing skills by building upon their knowledge, incorporating their interests. We give them opportunities to engage in play, sharing, learning and emphasise the importance of working together.

Reception children have a designated adult known as a key person who forms a special attachment which helps your child to feel safe and secure. This relationship enables a child to boost its own self-esteem and self-reliance.

Kidz Star Club promotes positive behaviour and uses diversion techniques, actively promoting and implementing anti-discriminatory procedures. We work closely with Landscore and share behaviour management plans. The children who attend decide and review their own club rules or rules for games. We respect all children and individual parenting styles. We understand parents are children’s primary educators and believe sharing information is crucial in supporting children’s development. We are flexible and accommodating to parent’s wishes and requests. We adapt our settings policies and procedures to reflect the changes of parental needs. Partnership with parents is valued and respected.
