Who are we?
XP Kids Ltd launched in 2019 after discovering how hard it is to find after school care for a small village primary school.
XP Kids is owned and run by a St Marks mum, who is involved in school life through the School Association and also the Board of Governors. I am also a working mum and know the challenges this bring on an already hectic life with children.
We are committed to making it easier and less stressful for working parents to find a balance that means they don't have to worry about their children, we know if your kids are happy it makes everything a little bit easier for you.
We want to help and support children after their busy day at school and we will do that by imaging the ethos of St Marks school in every way we can, we look forward to welcoming your children into our club soon.
Our staff have all been recruited following "safer recruitment in education" guidelines.
We have fully trained safeguarding and first aid staff available at all sessions, your child's safety is our priority.
Recruitment has been of the highest priority for us and we know your children will be well looked after and cared for at XP Kids
We want children at XP Kids clubs to be happy and have fun, whilst making choices about what they do. We will run weekly themed activities to keep them engaged and entertained during their time with us. But, we also realise that they may just want to play with their friends, do their homework or simply sit and read or chill out quietly.
Daily life in a session
After checking in on our online system your children will move to our area of the school for that day.
We will run a free flow snack / tea where your children can choose what they have to eat (we will encourage kids to eat, I have 2 kids that would prefer to play than eat, I get the frustration!) the usual selection will be wraps, bagels or sandwiches with fillings, fruit and veg and a snack such as cookie, flapjack (some days we will make these in the sessions)
If your child is in EYFS we will work with the teaching staff to make sure we are following the same work for the week and your child will have a small notebook with notes about what we have achieved in session.
At the end of the session when a parent or authorised carer has arrived we will check your child out of our online system.
