About Funky Monkeys

We offer an Out-Of-School service for Moorfield Primary school and also offer the Governments * HAF program during Easter and part of the Summer holidays. This is a free Holiday Activity club for children age 4- 11 eligible for free school meals. * (Subject to funding)

Our activities incorporate the Early Years Foundation stage. Whatever a child's abilities, we incorporate the needs of all our children. 

Our staff are also very experienced in many areas of special needs, abilities and medical conditions. 

Our highly qualified staff have many years experience, and continually develop their skills through on-going training. As an OFSTED registered provision, all staff have Enhanced DBS clearance.

We have great relationships with our local schools and nurseries and are registered with Halton's Children's Information Services. We also attend regular network meetings organised by Halton Borough Council.

We love visits from our local Community Support Officer and Cheshire Fire Services, who are very popular, if the Fire Engine turns up too.

As we are not an educational setting, but a fun, relaxing and safe place where your child can play with friends, paint, build, exercise or just sit and read a book. We produce weekly activity plans based on topics often chosen by our children.

Both are not an OFSTED Requirement.

All staff are also trained in Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Safeguarding,  Prevent and Fire Safety.

OFSTED Out-of-School child/staff Ratios can now be 1-30. We never go above 1-10 and are usually less. Child safety, not profit, is our main priority.

We can send you a registration form to complete, or pop in and meet us to have a quick look around. (Email ahead to book a visit)

How do I pay my fees?

GUARANTEED FEES are due on the first of each month and must be received by the 3rd to continue your place. You can pay by Bank Transfer, Childcare Vouchers or Standing Order, to the bank details on your registration form.

A monthly Invoice will be emailed to you prior to the 1st of each month.

 

EXTRA SESSIONS (Subject to vacancies) can be booked by emailing

funkymonkeyskidsclub@yahoo.co.uk. 

Payments are due once your requested dates have been confirmed and reserved for you.

Once payment has been received, a confirmation receipt will be sent and your booked sessions will then be added to our registers. 

Once places are booked, they cannot be swapped and are non refundable.

How are my Guaranteed places calculated?

We calculate your weekly fees by the number of academic school weeks your child will attend (Max 38) and divide them by how many months are left till the end of the school year. (Max payments from 1st September - to  1st July, 11 months) 

This means your fees don't alter each month, unless you change your sessions. Monthly fees are usually less than expected.

 

Can I alter my guaranteed sessions?

Yes of course! Guaranteed places will require two weeks notice to amend or cancel sessions. 

What is the deadline for a last-minute Extra booking?

We need as much notice as possible to book our vacant sessions. Most parents will book monthly sessions in advance.

Ideally the Thursday before the week you need us would be our deadline, as

we finalise our Weekly Registers every Thursday for the coming week, to make sure adequate staff are present, to adhere to the correct ratios and we also pass the information on to the School to ensure a smooth handover.

We may take emergency last minute pick ups, if we have vacancies and the correct staff are on shift. Contact the club direct as Emails may not be picked up in time.

It all starts here

The Funky journey began in 2006, renting classrooms from Halton Borough Council, at one of the local primary schools.

Bigger and Better

Because our funky family keeps on growing. We expanded next door for more space for games, discos, outdoor Play Yard and all sorts of stuff for our monkeys to get up to!

Here for good!

Funky Monkey's Kids Club is now a well established and experienced childcare provider for the local community. Who knows what the future holds?

Time for an upgrade

2009 meant we could expand to an even bigger premises at Bancroft Road, opposite the brilliant Crow Wood Park. It's our new home!
