KOOSA Kids Breakfast & After School Clubs Reopening from 8th March. Bookings now OPEN!
Having been in regular and close contact with the Department for Education throughout lockdown, we were very hopeful for positive news yesterday, but we were delighted to hear the Prime Minister himself confirm in person, in his speech in the House of Commons, that breakfast & after school clubs can reopen in-line with schools from the 8th March!
We are pleased to confirm that KOOSA Kids Breakfast & After School Clubs will be reopening from 8th March as well and bookings are now OPEN! View our news page for more details on our reopening plans.
We understand this has been a very challenging time for everyone, juggling work with home learning & the overall pressures of living in a lockdown situation. We are excited to bring back our childcare services in the very near future, to reengage & have fun with your children, and give you a well-deserved break.
For those planning ahead, we hope to open bookings for the Easter Holidays (6th to 16th April) in the coming days as well.
We can’t wait to welcome you back at our clubs very soon!

KOOSA Kids is a leading provider of before and after school club childcare, as well as holiday childcare, across Berkshire, Hampshire, Richmond & Surrey. Fully Ofsted registered, our ethos is to deliver high quality childcare for busy, working parents, every school day from when school finishes until 6.00pm. KOOSA Kids have been running Ofsted registered after school clubs, breakfast clubs and holiday clubs for over 15 years.
We understand that at the end of a busy school day, your children might be tired or want to let off steam. Our after school clubs therefore have a relaxed feel, giving children the choice to take part in a large selection of games and activities (indoors and outdoors), catch up with old friends or make new ones.
At all KOOSA Kids After School Clubs and to fill the gap between lunch and dinner, children are offered a healthy snack every afternoon, made up of fresh fruit or vegetables and a carbohydrate (e.g. crumpets, toast, wraps etc).
High Quality Childcare, Proud to be rated Outstanding 17 Times by Ofsted!
Since inception in 2005, our passion to deliver high quality after school club, holiday club & breakfast club childcare has remained the core driver for every member of the KOOSA Kids team. We work hard to consistently deliver the highest level of childcare, constantly reviewing and improving practice, listening to and acting upon feedback from children, staff and parents with a focus on not only meeting, but exceeding the regulatory requirements set out by Ofsted.
It is particularly rewarding that Ofsted continue to recognise these efforts, with seventeen of our clubs having been awarded Ofsted highest grade possible ‘Outstanding’, setting the standards for the out of school childcare industry.
We are extremely proud of our Ofsted inspection track record and have achieved more Ofsted Outstanding ratings than any comparable wraparound childcare provider!
Securing New Spaces at KOOSA Kids After School Clubs
Sessions for KOOSA Kids breakfast clubs and / or after school clubs can be booked on an ad hoc basis, as and when you need them. Breakfast Club sessions can be booked by 1pm and After School Club sessions can be booked by 6pm the working day before you need them, subject to availability. If you require childcare on a more permanent basis, we can contract the days you require through a Permanent Places Agreement, guaranteeing your sessions on an ongoing basis.
Exceptional Value, Outstanding Quality, Unlimited Fun!
Whether they simply want to sit quietly and read a book, enjoy some creative time at one of our art tables or play with their friends inside or outside, our after school club team will accommodate their needs and help them enjoy their time at KOOSA Kids.
We understand that at the end of a busy school day, children are often tired and may just want to chill out during their time with us. For this reason, we schedule in Free Time Zone every day, straight after school until 4.15pm and last thing (5.15pm until 6.00pm).
During Free Time Zone children are able to choose what they want to do. There is a choice of playing board games, drawing, reading, Lego, Giant Jenga, puzzles, extensive art areas, watching a DVD and Playstation Zone (at limited times), Homework areas (optional) or just simply relaxing with friends.
Between the two Free Time Zones, the children may either choose to take part in a group activity from our Discovery & Endeavour Zone, or have supervised Free Play, utilising the extensive range of equipment we have available at each of our after school clubs. Weather permitting, we always aim to take the children outside during their time with us.
Each after school club session gives children the option to take part in an organised activity from either our Discovery or Endeavour Zone.
There are hundreds of kids activities to choose from and these might include Clay Moulding, Lego Building, Cricket, Hockey, Golf, Football, Relays, Parachute Games, Bug Hunting, Painting / Drawing, Role Play and much, much more!
The group as a whole will decide each afternoon which activity to play. Alternatively, we offer free play as an organised activity, where the children choose exactly what they wish to take part in from a selection of equipment made available by the staff.
On top of the activities on offer each day in our Free Time and Discovery & Endeavour Zones, we also arrange occasional visits from community groups in the local area. For instance, visits from Local Fire and Police Crews have been a big hit with the children at our after school club in the last few years!
The crews who attend our after school clubs are fantastic. Often the children are given the chance to sit in the fire engine, try on the uniform and accessories and even operate the hoses! They really do have a fabulous time when the emergency services arrive!
Additionally, we support national charity events like Children in Need and Red Nose Day as well as awareness campaigns such as Road Safety Awareness Week and World Book Day. Where possible, we will also give children the opportunity to enter national competitions, e.g. the Games Inventor Competition.
Great staff very polite and child friendly, lots of activities, my son loves it!

KOOSA Kids take the health and wellbeing of the children in our care, and that of our staff, extremely seriously. All our clubs will follow the clear & workable sector-specific guidance provided by the Department for Education to reopen in a safe & Covid-Secure way. We have and will continue to work with each of our partner schools to formulate specific reopening plans for our before & after school clubs.
Below you will find some of the protective measures that will be in place across all our clubs from September:
Staggered collection times
All KOOSA Kids after school clubs run from school finish until 6.00pm. In-line with Government guidelines, staggered collection times will be in place to reduce crowds, limit contact, allow more time for children to be outside & for KOOSA Kids staff to maintain cleaning schedules.
We kindly ask you to respect the timings below and not to collect your children outside of these time frames as Site Supervisors will not be able to accommodate this. Registration at each specific time will be open for 15 minutes or until everyone in the queue has been signed out.
Please only collect your child from the after school club at one of the following times:
Collection will be outside, regardless of the weather, and parents will not be able to enter the building. KOOSA Kids staff will offer a contactless sign in, where parents will be asked to review any information and staff will countersign on their behalf.
Please see individual club pages for more detailed information on where to collect your child.
We operate a strict and secure drop off and collection system and it is necessary for a parent / guardian to sign all children out every day. You will have been issued with a unique security pin number which you will need to collect your child. This will be the same code as your unique booking reference number, found at the top of your booking confirmation. You will need to quote this number whenever you collect your child. If a friend or relative is due to collect your child, please ensure this number is passed securely onto them as we will not be able to release your child unless the pin number is accurately quoted by the person collecting.
A late fee may be charged if children are collected after 6pm. See our Terms & Conditions for further details.
