**7th January - COVID-19 Update**
Following the Government’s announcement regarding a new national lockdown, including the closure of all schools, we have once again had to make the very difficult decision to close our breakfast and after school clubs, either with immediate effect (from Tuesday 5th January) or for a small number of schools, from 6.00pm on Friday 8th January. For full details, please click here.
We are delighted to be able to reopen our breakfast club at The Vineyard School for the new school year, in a Covid-Secure way and in-line with latest guidance from the Department for Education.
Whilst there will be changes in the way we operate our breakfast club, our breakfast club will continue to offer a welcoming, safe & fun space for your child to relax and have fun with friends after a busy school day. Click here to read how our clubs will operate in a Covid-Secure way.
Staggered Drop Off Times
In-line with Government guidelines, staggered registration 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 drop off 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 10 minutes or until everyone in the queue has been signed out.
Please only drop off your child at the breakfast club at one of the following times:
Registration 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. Drop off will be from outside the large hall, as usual.
How will my child be looked after?
Your children will be grouped in ‘bubbles’ according to Department for Education guidelines and as agreed with The Vineyard School. Children in Year R will form one bubble, Year 1 & 2 will form a second bubble, Year 3 & 4 will form the third bubble and Year 5 & 6 will form a fourth bubble. Each bubble will be allocated a dedicated space and equipment, using both halls.
To avoid disappointment, we would like to remind you that we are unable to guarantee your child will be placed in the same bubble as their friends. Please note, bubbles will not mix throughout the session.
Suitably qualified staff, including Paediatric First Aiders, are present at the club at all times.
Opened in September 2019, KOOSA Kids are delighted to have been asked to take on the running of the breakfast club at The Vineyard School in Richmond on behalf of the school.
The breakfast club at The Vineyard School is open daily from 7.30am until school starts and is based from the small school hall, with access to the playground. We offer the children a selection of healthy breakfast options such as toast, cereals, juices and fruit.
KOOSA Kids also run an After School Club from this venue.
