Many of you will be aware that Elm Grove Kids Club is an independent not for profit company which was established by a group of Didsbury CE parents way back in 2004.
The club has run successfully, in close collaboration with the school ever since. It has provided much needed high-quality wraparound care at our school since its inauguration. Over the years the EGKC board has changed to reflect the changing parental body of our school.
Due to the current crisis and some difficulties in recruiting parents to key roles on the company board, the current committee have made the decision to hand over the responsibilities of running the club to the school and the Trust Board that manage the school. The aim is that the club will run in a similar fashion, with the same staff and prices but be part of the St James and Emmanuel Academy Trust rather than a separate entity.
We are currently in the process of managing this legal process of changing the employer from the EGKC Board to the Trust Board and are aiming for a 1st September date for the completion. Obviously, at this point, like in any legal process, this date cannot be guaranteed but we are very hopeful that this will be possible.
If you currently use EGKC, or were thinking of booking sessions next year, please do read through the frequently asked questions below which hopefully will answer any queries you may have.
We will keep everyone updated towards the end of August when the legal process should be nearing completion.
