About Us

Rachel_Wiltshire

I look forward to welcoming you and your child to For Kids Co. 

Rachel, Director and qualified teacher
For Kids Co is a quality, affordable, before and after school club and holiday playscheme for children.

At For Kids Co, your child will benefit from a caring, safe and supported environment to make new friends, learn and have fun.


Our facility is fully self-contained with a fully operational kitchen, outdoor space for the children to play and our own forest garden, providing a stable, secure and relaxed environment where parents and carers feel satisfied to leave their children.


With daily planned activities, facilitated by qualified and experienced staff, For Kids Co offers a wrap-around care service where children are stimulated and encouraged. Safeguarding is of utmost importance and all of our staff undergo full, enhanced DBS checks in line with our Ofsted registration.

Healthy living is promoted and reflected in our menus and activities. You will be provided with a schedule of activities and a menu, ensuring that you are aware of what your child will be doing and eating throughout the week. We encourage input from parents and your suggestions are hugely appreciated through our For Kids Forum, where you will also be able to discuss ideas and make new friends with other parents.

 
Ultimately, our aim is to help children develop their full potential through positive, social, emotional, physical and intellectual experiences by:

  • Maintaining high standards of childcare in which there is provision for parents and carers to participate in the planning of the scheme so that all feel a sense of adequacy and fulfilment.

  • Valuing, recognising and respecting children and their parents/carers that are from different backgrounds of race, culture, or religion. 

  • Recognising and respecting children's individual needs e.g. disabilities, faith and gender.

“Every child is unique, and I enjoy helping them flourish and be happy. Not only do I help children move forward with their learning goals, but they also teach me as well. Every day there is a new thing I learn from the children. Planning activities to suit individual needs, keeping children safe and happy are my main goals.

Children are our future and bring fresh hope for a great world. What better way to be a part of that then with For Kids Co.”

“With a background in teaching, and a busy Mum of two, I'd always used nurseries, childminders and wrap-around providers to ensure that I was able to work, knowing that my children were well looked after, engaged and happy. Each day, they would tell me about new friends and new skills learnt. More and more, I realised the positive impact that learning through play had on little ones and so decided to launch For Kids Co where the focus is exactly that. Seeing that 'eureka' moment when a child realises that they 'can', is the most rewarding feeling ever! Every child is different and so is every day! Seeing our children from the nervous first day to laughing and playing imaginary games with new friends is such a fantastic journey. Hearing the excitement in their little voices at the end of the school day ask, 'please can we make cookies today? or ' Is it dressing up day?' is simply music to my ears and hopefully, memories made for life and, might I add, not just for the children!”
