STARFISH KIDS CLUB IS A NOT FOR PROFIT COMPANY THAT RUNS CHILDCARE
IN BRIGHTON AND HOVE FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILDREN AGED FROM 4 TO 11.
Our team of experienced and qualified playworkers provide a quality play environment that is safe, fun and welcoming to all children. We work hard to offer a range of activities that children enjoy, including lots of arts and crafts, free play and sports.
4th January 2021
As I’m sure you’re aware, the schools are being closed this week on recommendation from Brighton and Hove Council
due to the increase in numbers of Covid 19 cases in the city.
Whilst the schools are closed there will be no after school clubs so Starfish will not be running until they reopen.
As stated in our terms and conditions, we are unfortunately unable to offer refunds in these circumstances, as a not for profit we would not be able to reopen again if we were to do so, however if the schools remain closed from February then we will cancel the sessions on your accounts and no further payments will be taken. We will then rebook your sessions for you once the schools reopen.
Thanks so much for your understanding at this difficult time.
Please all stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you and children as soon as we can.
Paul and the Starfish team
COVID 19 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Starfish is a not-for-profit after school and holiday club providing a safe and stimulating environment for Brighton and Hove children. Founded by parents in 2001, Starfish continues to be managed by a voluntary committee of parents as well as school representatives.
All our staff are recruited through the safer recruitment process and have a certificate in paediatric first aid, safeguarding, food hygiene, FGM and prevent duty. All our club coordinators have a level 2 or level 3 NVQ in Playwork as well as a certificate in safeguarding for lead practitioners.
Each setting has a dedicated safeguarding lead practitioner, fire safety officer and health and safety officer. We’ve worked hard to create a safe and stimulating environment and have employed staff who can relate well to all children with a range of needs.
Our mission is to offer something exciting and fun to all children and to make sure we cater to all of their individual needs in a happy and safe environment.Whether your child is into sports, drama, arts/crafts or music or can feel a bit shy and in need of encouragement trying new things, we have something for everyone.
