Our work has one clear focus: your child's individual needs. In order for us to support your child's development in the best possible way, we employ people with different educational training backgrounds. They all attend regular further training courses, which enable them to bring new ideas and proposals to their daily work - ideas that will also benefit your child!
All staff members are CRB checked, and undertake mandatory Child Protection Training.

Manager of Creative kidz.
I have worked in childcare since leaving college in 1991. Initially i became a children's nanny after being asked to stay on at a work placement.
After becoming a Mum myself i decided childminding was a good option but found that i was overwhelmed with work.
I researched the need for Out of School Childcare and completed an NVQ level 3 qualification in Playwork. I went on to open the first setting in 2004 after agreeing a surestart grant from Hampshire County Council, We ran from a local church hall in Hamble.
We soon became too big for the venue and expanded to the local Primary School.
Our second setting came about following a request by the headteacher and opened in Jan 2009.
From then on we have been approached by 4 further schools to provide out of school childcare. We now run 6 settings in total in and around the Southampton area.
Amongst other qualifications I currently hold certificates in Paediatric first aid, Safeguarding children, Health and safety and manual handling, ILM level 3 certificate in management.
I am also Mum to 3 boys aged, 14, 12 and 5.
