Information about the setting

Doodles Out of School Club was re-registered in 2011 on the Early Years Register and the compulsory part of the Childcare Register. It is situated in a purpose-built building in the grounds of Almondbury Infant and Nursery School in Huddersfield. It is run as a private concern. The club serves the local area and is accessible to all children. The club has additional use of the school’s outdoor play area. The club employs five members of childcare staff. Of these, one has Early Years Professional Status and Qualified Teacher Status, one holds an appropriate early years qualification at level 3, and one holds level 2. The club opens Monday to Friday all year round. Sessions are from 7.30am to 9am and 3pm to 6pm during term time only. The club also provides holiday care from 7.30am to 5.30pm. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently eight children on roll who are in the early years age group. The club supports children who speak English as an additional language and children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: enhance the already highly competent process of monitoring the effectiveness of staff and the quality of teaching by, for example, the introduction of peer observations.
