Complete Kidz Restructures to Focus Attention on Core Businesses

The Directors of leading Black Country Community Interest Company Complete Kidz have now decided to close two areas of the overall organisation.

Cafe @ Portway closed on Tuesday 28th February as it was felt that it was not fulfilling its initial promise.

On Friday 10th March the Totz Zone pre-school will close as well. The Directors are sad to see an end to a facility which was providing so much enjoyment and support to local families.

Wherever possible and appropriate staff members are being employed in other areas of the business.

For the future success of the organisation, the Directors have chosen to concentrate on the core areas of the business. Complete Kidz has always provided a wide range of affordable physical activity, sports coaching and educational services to improve the health and well-being of all age groups. The organisation’s goal remains to raise the understanding of healthy eating and exercise amongst children and their parents, as well as offering economical high quality childcare.

In order to move forward positively at this time, the Directors are putting all their efforts into the thriving sports school services and flourishing Kidz Zone childcare and holiday camps.

Furthermore, the Fun Fitness Classes for children and adults will continue as usual. Complete Kidz also remains committed a range of community health initiatives such as the Sandwell-based Make, Move & Munch clubs.

The organisation is embarking on a new sports coach apprenticeship programme, with members of staff having already been identified for crucial Mentor roles. The Directors are focusing on managing and training existing staff, building the skills of these Mentors and ensuring that Complete Kidz is as prosperous as possible.

Complete Kidz has started the year on a high note, having recently become the first Community Interest Company in the UK to achieve gold CAA accreditation. The CAA (Children’s Activities Association) is the first not-for-profit, industry-led organisation to set and raise standards in all organised children’s activities across the United Kingdom.

The mission of Complete Kidz remains to inspire and develop health and education through innovative and imaginative activities involving sport, music, drama and art. They accomplish this through engaging children and their parents and encouraging them to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Their activities are provided in a safe environment, where the participants enjoy themselves and achieve meaningful personal outcomes.
