Stamford KIDS' Early Support and Learning Provision

KIDS is a national charity providing a wide range of services supporting disabled children, young people and their families. All of our services are driven by an overarching commitment to a more inclusive society and our passionate belief that disabled children and young people have a right to be included on an equal basis.

KIDS have been commissioned by Lincolnshire County Council to deliver creche facilities for disabled children and those with complex health needs across the county.

Creche sessions last for 1hour and 59 minutes, with an additional parent support hour either before or after the creche.

KIDS' Early Support and Learning Provision sessions bring parents and carers together with their pre-school children, so that they can benefit from the advice and support of other parents, professional and KIDS' staff.

We will ensure that young children feel safe and are warmly welcomed into the creche. They will be supported to participate in both structured and free play activities, that will assist with communication, concentration, learning, physical, imagination and social skills.

The sessions will cater for the individual development needs of each child. Sessions will follow a similar format so that children become familiar with the routine and they will include music and songs, creative, sensory, imaginative and exploratory play activities.

Children will be offered different tactile and sensory experiences to help them develop a range of skills and they will be able to choose activities for themselves.

Staff are highly trained in order to meet the individual needs of children attending.

KIDS is committed to working in partnership with parents. Parent and carers will receive a warm welcome to the creche facilities and will be invited to join the parents' support hour, at the beginning or end of each session.

Our staff will be available to offer emotional and practical support, including advice on how best to support the development of children through play and to build the confidence of parents in their own abilities as primary educators.

The sessions enable parents to a have a short break, some time for themselves and their children to have some fun, cared for by our qualified staff team.
