Our Story

In 2006, Stephanie Carter faced that age old dilemma of trying to find a balance between childcare and her career. Her work in social services meant her varied shift patterns made finding childcare incredibly difficult.

That’s when Kids’ Corner came along! Offering flexible child care to suit shift patterns.

Steph opened her first setting – Kids’ Corner Childminders, with her own two children and one other child.

In 2016 Kids’ Corner became so busy that Steph changed from a childminders into a child care setting; installing a purpose built cabin in the garden of her home, so they could offer care to more children and families in the area.

Kids’ Corner was graded outstanding by Ofsted in all areas. This was one of Steph’s proudest moments.

In 2018, Kid’s Corner Child Care in Camblesforth was completely full, so Steph made the decision to open another setting.

Kids’ Corner Nursery in Barlow opened in January and over 80 children were signed up in four months. Barlow Nursery is set in the village hall, offering a small baby room and a seperate toddler room with the most amazing outdoor space.

Kids’ Corner opened their third setting right in the middle of the covid pandemic. In June 2020 Kids’ Corner Pre-School was opened, based on the grounds of The Read School in Drax. In the first year of being open the Pre-School made headlines in the local paper for having such a successful year. Drax is a beautiful setting with a fabulous outdoor space.

Kids’ Corner are now proud to launch their forth setting in September 2021, right on the sea front at Bridlington overlooking the harbour. The old seaside museum is set to make a fabulous day nursery for children aged 0-8 years, with many of its wonderful rooms still intact. It has its own cinema room, a sand castle room, and a train carriage for the children to learn and develop in. This setting will be offering the same flexible child care as Camblesforth Barlow and Drax.

“I have had the pleasure of taking care of hundreds of children and each one has taken a piece of my heart. I am beyond proud of what myself and my team have achieved and we look forward to working alongside more families and providing quality childcare for years to come. I want every child who leaves Kids’ Corner to leave here being the best they can possibly be.”

Our Mission

Our aim is to ensure that by the time your child reaches school age, they are confident, secure and the best they can possibly be.

At Kids’ Corner, we are committed to providing excellent flexible Early Years Education and Childcare in a safe, loving and stimulating environment following the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is the period of education from birth to five years. Most children are expected to achieve the early learning goals by the end of foundation stage.

There is a strong emphasis on learning through play, both child initiated and planned play. The curriculum is delivered through a combination of whole group activities, adult led focused activities and child initiated activities.
