About Us

Box Kids is an Out of School Club, conveniently located in the Jubilee Centre in the Market Place, Box. We have been providing families with childcare since 2001, Becky took over in 2007 where it has gone from strength to strength. 

 

We care for children aged 3-11years, we are registered with Ofsted to care for children aged 3-8 years, providing 'wrap around' childcare of the highest standard. Whether you are returning to work/ college or just need a extra hours at the end of the day, we're here to help.

There's plenty of time for playing with all our toys, games and socialising with friends. We've a quiet area if the children wish to read books, have a rest or do homework, we try to play outdoors at least once a week during the warmer months and weather permitting during the wetter/colder months. The children help us with our themes and activities by giving us ideas and suggestions.

 

To help with valuable family time, for an extra £1.60 per day, we can give your child an evening meal, freeing up time before bedtime. The meals are planned with help from the children to ensure the children will like the meals. We alter the menu for dietary and cultural requirements and encourage the children to try new foods, especially fruit, salad & vegetables. Look at our latest menu >>>

 

We encourage the children to care/look after themselves and others, including things around them like toys and the environment etc. We feel a pet enhances this. We have two Guinea Pigs named Butterfly and Squeak. The children enjoy playing calmly with them, cleaning out the cage and feeding them.

 

Ofsted and EYFS

On Friday 22nd August 2014 we had a visit from Ofsted to carry our an inspection, we were given a glowing report and awarded 'GOOD', which we are very pleased with..Click here to read our report. 

 

September 2008 saw Box Kids implement the new Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for all children aged 3-5years in our care which links up with nurseries, pre-schools and schools. The framework was refined in September 2012 and again September 2014.

Meet Our Team

We are extremely proud of the quality of our childcare and have a ratio of at least 1 staff member to every 12 children, we adjust the adults to match the needs and ages of the children i.e. sometimes we work on the lower ratio of staff to 5 children.

 

All staff including volunteers have a CRB check and have a full induction to ensure they and the children are kept safe. All staff have relevant training and wear bright pink t-shirts, coats and gilets and bright blue jumpers displaying the settings logo and contact details. Staff all wear ID badges.

Becky Townsend - Managing Owner 

(Lead Safeguarding Officer, Health & Safety Officer) 

 

"I started working with children 15 years ago, I've worked with children in a variety of ways e.g. playgroup, childminding, babysitting, running a Brownie and Rainbow Groups. As well as being at Box Kids, I am currently a teaching assistant at Box Primary School. I enjoy working with children as every day is different, you never know what the children going to do or say, it's great when you see e children achieve something and gain confidence. I have always wanted to work with children, it is a very rewarding job to do and I can't think any other job I would like to do. 

In my free time, I like running & going to the gym, spending time with friends & family and reading"

"I have been working at Box Kids for nearly 10 years (apart from taking time out to have my little boy Louie) since returning I work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday. I really enjoy working with all the different ages of children doing lots of different activities with them, I especially like taking the children on adventures around the village to learn and develop in the local environment, this includes getting messy with paint, mud, gloop and many different things in Box Kids.

When at home I enjoy spending time with my family, taking my dogs on long walks and having more adventures with Louie"

Lauren Wright - Playworker 

 

"I originally worked with older people as a carer as I like helping people, but decided I would enjoy working with children more after babysitting. I have helped at a Brownie Pack where I worked with the Brownies in small groups and playing games. I look forward to gaining more experience with children and my knowledge by attending training courses. I've been working at Box Kids for nearly 3 years."
