Are you asking about the night's kidush or the day's (or both)? –  msh210 Feb 7 '11 at 21:01
either one is fine –  SimchasTorah Feb 8 '11 at 0:28

Rabbi Akiva Eiger holds you should make Kiddush although most other Poskim say you should not.

The Chasam Sofer writes that you should have in mind Kiddush during Davening.

I recall hearing that children should not make Kiddush on Yom Kippur as there is no Mitzva of Chinuch to teach them to make Kiddush for Yom Kippur.

I am not sure what you are saying. –  Gershon Gold Feb 7 '11 at 19:16
I am syaing there is only Kiddush on Shabbos Yom Kippur on A regular Yom Kippur there is no Kiddush –  SimchasTorah Feb 8 '11 at 0:29
You say shehechiyanu in shool at night anyway. –  theblitz May 17 '11 at 19:24
