High Quality Childcare and Education
Kids Academy deliver high quality early years childcare and education in the UK and Middle East offering multi award-winning day nursery and preschool facilities with outstanding early years education for children aged 30 days to 5 years of age.
We are very proud of the Kids Academy childcare team and in recognition of this we have been awarded a number of national and international quality assurance awards including Investors in People, ISO9001 quality management, IOS14000 Environmental Management, ISO180001 Health and Safety and ISO27001 Information Security which all supplement our monthly nursery management systems to deliver high quality childcare around the world.
We believe that by delivering the highest standards of staff training and development through our Kids Academy Childcare staff training we can deliver to parents an outstanding early year’s education to the children in our care.
British EYFS Curriculum
The British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum is implemented daily by our UK education experts to ensure we provide a high quality learning journey for your children. We abide by the UK’s world recognised Governing body Ofsted’s National Nursery standard to ensure key areas such as staff to child ratios are maintained at all times.
The new September 2012 EYFS Curriculum is implemented in all our Kids Academy Nurseries and now includes 7 areas of learning:
3 prime areas
- Personal: social and emotional
- Communication and language
4 specific areas of learning
- Expressive art & design
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
The Government Childrenâ€™s Minister Liz Truss has announced radical plans to alter the adult to child ratios in a bid to lower childcare costs for Parents.Â The proposed changes are to take Babies and Toddlers to 1:4 and Early Learners to 1:6.
The new outlined changes have not been welcomed by the majority of childcare providers who see the amendments to the ratios as simply impossible to physically deliver and alarmingly dangerous to consider.
Kids Academy does not support these changes and we will not be implementing them as we believe it is fundamentally wrong to compromise high quality childcare by increasing the number of children our staff are able to care for in the lower age categories.Â We believe the Governments proposed initiative will create a two tier childcare system, comprising of first tier childcare settings dedicated to providing quality childcare and education continuing to operate on the current ratios and the second tier settings who will abide by the new ratios of more children which will be operationally challenging for childcare teams to deliver safely the same development outcomes.
Kids Academy staff to child ratio will remail as below:
|Room Name||Staff Ratio|
|Babies (30 days to 1 year)||1:3|
|Toddlers (1 to 2 years)||1:3|
|Early Learners (2 to 3 years)||1:4|
|Preschool Reception 1 (3 to 4 years)||1:8|
|Preschool Reception 2 (4 to 5 years)||1:8|
