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. 

 

Ofsted and EYFS

 

At our last inspection (August 2017) it was recognised that we provide high quality childcare and was extremely complimentary. Grading the Club as “Good” overall, adding we have a lot of respect for each other, between all the children and staff, and that the setting is a very happy, caring, and creative place for children to be.  Staff were praised for providing “an interesting and stimulating range of planned activities to keep the children occupied and help them to progress in all areas of their development.”  We are extremely proud of this and of everything we do. 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. 

The framework was updated in April 2017, we no longer need to implement EYFS’ Teaching, Learning and Assessment but we will continue to monitor the children's development and pass on any relevant details on to other settings. We carry out one observation a month and link it to the Characteristics of Effective Learning. Regular children aged 3-5 years will have a learning journey, we observe children as soon as they start to help us get to know the children and settle them in. You are welcome to have a look at your child’s learning journey.

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 in 2001, 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"

Lauren - Deputy 

(Deputy Safeguarding Officer)

 

"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 over 4 years. I also have a passion for nails and design, in 2019 trained as a Nail Technician and started my Nail Salon. I like spending time with friends, going to festivals and keeping fit"
