Rushden Kids Club has been providing out of school services for children aged four to fourteen years old for over twenty years. We aim to provide quality childcare in a safe and vibrant setting. There are two areas in which the children are based; the younger children aged four to seven years old in the Under 8’s and the older children aged eight to fourteen years, who have their own separate building and outside area, in the Over 8’s.
We offer a breakfast club, where children can play and make friends before being taken to school and an after school club, where the children are safely taken from one of the local schools back to Rushden Kids Club. The schools we currently take children to and collect from are: Tennyson Road, Alfred Street, Southend Infants and Juniors and Whitefrairs Infants and Juniors, which are all walked back to Rushden Kids Club. We also have our very own mini-bus, which we use to take children to and from Higham Ferrers Infants and Juniors and Henry Chichele schools.
Our excellent team running the club do so in a way that keeps everyone engaged, offering opportunities to wind down from school in the chill out areas or provide support with homework and after school studies. Rushden Kids Club prides itself in a home-from-home environment where the children have free choice in activities that they wish to participate in, all with the support and encouragement from our fun, friendly and experienced staff. Some of the activities the children have access to are: board games, art and crafts, outside sports, dressing up, Wii games, cooking and much more.
During the school holidays, we provide a holiday club that boasts an energetic program of activities which involves a mixture of indoor and outdoor fun. In addition to all the activities provided within term time, we also offer a range of exciting activities such as, visits to local parks and attractions, outings to country parks, roller skating, swimming, bowling, laser maze… just to name a few.
At Rushden Kids Club, we offer a range of breakfast choices to ensure the children have a good, healthy start to their day. We also provide a varied snack to the out of school children every evening on their return to the setting from school. During the school holidays, children can attend with their own packed lunches or we can provide a hot meal at a minimal extra cost.
