The Kidz Play story
Kate Ward founded the business after child minding for 2 years at home, and having been the Manager of a pre-school for 7 years. Kate has previously been a school governor, and has formerly chaired Halterworth School Association for 3 years. She has an excellent knowledge of the education system and endeavours to provide good quality care for children and working parents/carers whilst extending the business to further schools.
In the Beginning
The first After School Club opened in September 2000 at Montfort Hall, Romsey, providing quality After School care for children and working parents/carers. After the first three months there were 30 children registered, and attending regular sessions. The Breakfast Club then opened in 2002 to provide care for the children before school.
And then we grew
A second After School Club was opened in North Baddesley in June 2006 to provide the same quality of care. Later in that same year it went on to open a Breakfast Club.
And we continue to grow
Following this success Kidz Play are now the biggest Breakfast and After School care providers in the south having 13 Breakfast and After School Clubs.
We currently employ 80 qualified members of staff, and have over 2,500 permanent booked sessions a week.
