uKids has been born out of my passion for seeing children smiling, having fun and making friends. Having set up and built uSports, a local sports coaching company working in over 40 schools and nurseries locally I knew I wanted to be a bigger part of life for primary school children across Berkshire. While this is a new business, it is an idea which I have been keen to pursue for some time now as I believe the experiences I have encountered with uSports leave me in a strong position to begin this new venture in this type of provision.
Creating active, imaginative and bubbly environments for children to excel in their social skills and to grow as young people
Our ethos across the uGroup is to ‘put you first’ which we say through our name. We aim to ensure that everyone feels as though they have been put first in the decisions we make. We aim to ensure that every parent, child, school and employee are made to feel valued and are confident that the service which we are providing is of the absolute best quality.
"Clubs create a strange sort of family, we play together, we eat together and share memories together"
Q&A with Charlie Hiscox
Why did you start uKids?
I absolutely love seeing children smiling, having fun and laughing. I really wanted to be a part of more local children's everyday happiness by creating a childcare company that listens to its customers to create amazing settings that children get excited about.
Is uKids part of uSports?
Where do you see uKids in 3 years?
uKids and uSports are both separate companies which form the uGroup. They will be treated as two businesses that can compliment each other in the school and childcare industry that we work in.
We hope to be running a number of successful holiday and wrap-around clubs for 4-11 year olds. We will have an experienced team in place helping us to deliver outstanding childcare provisions.
What do you want uKids to become known for?
I want people to know uKids as the go to company for your childcare needs. We will be known for high quality clubs that children and parents love!
