What we do.

Harlequin out of school clubs provide superior and affordable childcare for children aged 2 – 13 years old in their breakfast, after school and holiday clubs based in mid and west Kent. The clubs are open 7.15am – 6.30pm every weekday except bank holidays.

Harlequin’s unique approach fulfils the social, physical and emotional needs of each child as an individual by providing quality care in a happy, safe and fun environment for all children and staff.

We support children to make  their own appropriate decisions and the we discuss the possible pros and cons of that decision so that children are learning to rationalise their decisions and to take safe “risks”. This is a vital skill for children and the current research suggests that children exposed to this type of environment are more fulfilled as teenagers and adults. At Harlequin, we want the children to achieve and succeed but also, more importantly, for the children to feel that they have succeeded. So we guide and support them by step by step and at their own pace, to promote a positive outcome for the child which will positively affect self esteem and confidence.

Through planning and observation, Harlequin develops the social and personal skills of children, maximising their abilities. Harlequin breaks the mould and provides a service that is flexible, innovative and of a high standard, supporting not only the child, but the parents too.

Harlequin knows that happy children equal happy parents.
