Mission and Vision

At 3RD Space Kids, our mission is simple yet profound: we aim to provide exceptional childcare services that prioritise the individual needs and interests of each child. We believe that every child deserves a '3RD Space,' a place beyond home and school, where they can learn, grow, and thrive. Our vision is to create a safe and nurturing environment where children can explore their unique talents, build lifelong friendships, and embrace independence.

In a world that often moves too fast, we're dedicated to slowing down and focusing on what truly matters – the well-being, development, and happiness of our campers. We envision a world where every child is valued and enriched through high-quality childcare that fosters their unique abilities. Our commitment is unwavering, and our journey continues to inspire kids, empower parents, and create a community that goes beyond camps.

Our Commitment to The Mission

With a team of over a decade of experience, 3RD Space Kids knows how to create a fun, rewarding, and safe holiday camps, after-school clubs, wraparound childcare, PE sessions and more for children of all ages.

 

We believe in four core values for the ultimate 3RD Space Kids experience: prioritising child safety and welfare, having experienced and inspiring staff, always flexible, and offering thrilling activities.

 

Each day, for every child, we deliver on these values.

Unparalleled Care

We understand the importance of ensuring your child's well-being. Our commitment is reflected in the following key areas:

Our policies, procedures, practices, and venues are inspected and registered with Ofsted, giving you peace of mind. Extensive risk assessments are conducted at all venues to ensure a secure environment, complemented by standard safety infrastructure.

Child Behaviour

We believe in positive reinforcement and use The Camp Challenge Cup to promote behaviour of respectful citizens. We uphold high behavioral expectations, maintaining a zero-tolerance approach to bullying and a clear policy for managing poor behaviour.

Welfare & Care

We gather comprehensive details about your child, including medical information, allergies, and specific needs, to provide tailored care. We promote the physical and emotional well-being of children throughout the our settings, with caring and supportive staff guiding them.

We Value

At 3RD Space Kids, our core values aren't just words; they are our promise to you and the guiding principles that shape every aspect of our programmes. Rooted in the essence of the 'third place,' we hold dear the three pillars that define our approach: Confidence, Community, and Connection.

These aren't merely concepts; they are the heartbeat of 3RD Space, woven into the fabric of our camps and clubs. We go beyond imparting knowledge; we instill these values in every child, nurturing not just their intellect but also their self-assurance, their sense of belonging to a community, and their ability to forge meaningful connections.

Confidence, Community, and Connection — these are more than values to us; they're the building blocks of a transformative and enriching experience that we are privileged to share with every child who walks through our doors.
