10 Years of Energy Kidz
Celebrating its 10th Year, Energy Kidz now employ over 700 people, working at 117 schools, operating over 130 clubs in 22 counties across the UK, all with either Good or Outstanding Ofsted inspections. We have over 20,000 parents registered with our clubs, hosting 1,000 children per day in the holidays and over 3,000 per day during Term Time.
As part of our celebrations marking 10 Years of Energy Kidz, we will be highlighting 10 elements of the business that have contributed towards the success of the company, as well as showcasing our journey to where we are now – the number one wraparound service provider in the UK.
Between the very first beginnings of Energy Kidz in 2009 to cementing ourselves as the UK’s number one provider of wraparound childcare today, it’s clear that we have reached so many milestones over the last decade. From the launch of our first Breakfast and After School Club at Winnersh Primary School to the implementation of our online booking system, additional head office roles and internal Quality Assurance visits, our sights have always been set forward to contend with our rapid growth and provide an outstanding service to thousands of parents and children.
