STARFISH KIDS CLUB IS A NOT FOR PROFIT COMPANY THAT RUNS CHILDCARE
IN BRIGHTON AND HOVE FOR SCHOOL AGED 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.
I hope you and your families have all been keeping well during this crazy time. It seems like so long ago that we closed our doors back in March but we are so delighted to be reopening our afterschool clubs at St Andrews Church Hall, St Bartholomew's and St Paul's Primary schools.
We are also very excited to be opening a brand new club at Cottesmore School.
Unfortunately we will no longer be running the club on a Tuesday and Wednesday in St Andrews School library, all our St Andrews sessions will now be held at the church hall.
We do have some spaces available on all days at our St Barts/St Paul's/Cottesmore settings and we have some spaces available on Fridays at St Andrews (and we can place you on the waiting list for sessions on Mon-Thurs) Please get in touch if you'd like to make a booking.
Our start dates are as follows-
Cottesmore- Fri 4th Sept
St Paul's- Fri 4th Sept
St Bart's- Mon 7th Sept
St Andrew's- Tues 8th Sept
The start date for reception children is Mon 21st Sept.
We do have some new policies and procedures in place to adhere to government guidelines regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. You can find these on the pdf below.
Please note that we will not be running a holiday club in October this year but are looking forward to bringing our holiday clubs back next year.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Starfish and wish you a great return to school.
Kind Regards, Paul
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.

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.
