The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. As an Ofsted registered provider we ensure that we are meeting the expectations on this framework. All professionals work towards a set of common principles and commitments to deliver ensure quality child care is delivered to their service users.

As Parent’s/Guardian’s you can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles are being met that will underpin your child’s learning and development experiences within the setting.

Your child will be assigned a key worker upon joining Casa Clubs if they are in reception class. A key worker is an allocated member of staff that will oversee your child’s care and development. You will receive weekly feedback in regards to your child’s time at Casa Club and how they are developing within the setting.

All casa clubs are registered with Ofsted and we adhere to all Ofsted guidelines and regulations. These guidelines make sure we offer the best possible care and continue to develop and raise standards across all of our clubs.

The legal adult to child requirement is currently 1:30.. However we always try to work to a 1:8 for under 8’s and 1:15 for over 8’s. Care is not affected in any respect for the older children however we find sometimes younger children may need more assistance throughout their time at Casa Club.

All staff members have enhanced Disclosure and barring checks, trained in safeguarding and wider aspects, food hygiene, behaviour management and much more. A minimum of one staff member onsite will be paediatric first aid trained.

Although there is no legal requirement to have qualified staff onsite, we try and recruit the highest quality people to ensure that we offer the best possible experience while in our care. All of our staff receives ongoing training.

Our teams offer a great mix of experience, personality and fun whilst ensuring all children are enjoying and getting the most from their time with us.

Casa Clubs are only able to administer medication prescribed by a doctor. This must have the original dispensing label with the child’s name and original packing. We ask for it to be provided in a clear sealed bag with the child’s name on.

If you require us to administer medication, we will require you to sign an authority form in order for us to be able to do so.

If a child has an EPI pen this will only be administered by a trained member of staff and with prior consent from the parent and guardian with a signed form which we will ask you to fill in at the club.

We ask for all EPI pens to be placed in a box and to be labelled with the child’s name on it.

Childcare Vouchers- As Casa Clubs are Ofsted registered you may be able to get Childcare vouchers. This allows employers to help their employees with the cost of childcare. Childcare vouchers are exempt from national insurance contribution’s (NICS) and income tax for employees up to the value of £55 per week, which can mean a saving of over £2000 a year for a couple who are both working. Please speak with your employer to see if this is something they offer or could offer for you.

We are registered with many childcare voucher providers; the list of providers will be available in your account. However if we are not registered with a provider you use, please let us know and we will be happy to sign up with them.

You can use your childcare vouchers to pay for your childcare for all or part of your bill.

Tax Free Childcare:  This scheme is available to working parent/s who earn at least £120 a year and no more than £100,000 per year. Tax free childcare is available to all children up to the age of 12 years old and to children with disabilities up to the age of 17. For every 80p you pay in the scheme the government top up 20p. This is equivalent of the tax most people pay - 20% - which gives the scheme its name, ‘tax-free’. The government will top up the account with 20% of childcare costs up to a total of £10,000 - the equivalent of up to £2,000 support per child per year (or £4,000 for disabled children).
