Children feel happy and safe at Kidzone; they find an environment that is supportive, encouraging and challenging – a great place to be with friends and to make new ones, to try out new activities, to relax and to have fun.

Kidzone has adopted an Inclusive Playcare Model and provides a wide range of activities, including arts and crafts, games and sports and usage of a computer suite. High standard childcare at Kidzone is affordable, flexible and suits most individual requirements.

Separately, Bolton School Services (BSS) Leisure, also provides classes and clubs for our own pupils and those in the local area during school holiday periods.

Parent Mrs Highton, whose children regularly attend the holiday sessions, enthused:

The team looked after my two incredibly well. One child has some additional needs - the team took the time to discuss with me and understand his needs. They remembered him well from the previous holiday camp and were able to allocate a familiar staff member and a little extra supervision. As a result, it was a very positive experience. The club is excellent value for money, especially as it includes a hot meal each day. As a parent, I have full confidence in the team.

Mrs Basnett, whose boy attends the same clubs, concurred, saying:

Oliver has been coming to BSS Leisure now for nearly four years and enjoys every bit of it. The staff have all the kids’ interest at heart and keep them fully active for the whole day. They create a good rapport and the different activities that they supply over the holidays are outstanding. I have never known a holiday club that offers so much. And the value for money is fantastic - every Term has a varied schedule so the kids are never bored. Over the years I have seen the club go from strength to strength with what they offer. Oliver has been to Delamere Forest several times for an outdoor camp; he always feel safe with all members of the team.

Some parents make use of whole-day care during holiday periods with their children attending both Kidzone and BSS Leisure holiday camps, and have them escorted by staff between the two.

Both wraparound childcare options are Ofsted registered with Designated Safeguarding Leads and deputies.
