Before and After School Care
Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, stimulating and creative experience for tamariki in a relaxed and friendly environment where your children are encouraged to explore, learn and grow. Our before and after school care programmes strive to meet the needs of each individual child.
Before School Care:
We offer Before School Care from 7am for children who need care before the school day starts.
Our aim is to ensure your child gets the best possible start to their day so they have the greatest chance of reaching their full potential at school.
We achieve this by:
Providing healthy kai for breakfast
Offering a range of games and activities to entertain and engage tamariki
Providing all children with the opportunity to complete any homework if needed
Providing a free drop off service to nearby schools
Ensuring that all children arrive at school on-time, happy and ready to learn
After School Care:
After School Care should be a time for tamariki to relax, make new friends and enjoy play.
We offer After School Care from 3-6pm daily. We will collect your children from school, provide them with a healthy afternoon tea and organise games and activities to keep them happy until they are collected.
Extra Curricular Activities
Your child does not have to miss out! We provide parents with the opportunity to allow their children to attend out of school care, as well as participating in extracurricular activities.
We will drop children off to their dance class, music lessons, sports games and practices that are held within the local area. This gives you peace of mind that your children do not miss out on extracurricular activities. Please contact us to discuss your requirements. Additional charges apply.
You can enrol your children today! No regular booking required
Enrol now for casual attendance, you never know when you will need us. Once you have completed the online enrolment form we will take bookings on the day care is required. We are only a text or phone call away. Contact your site manager for more information!
We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach.
Rather, each site has its own programme which is designed based on the needs and wants of the tamariki who attend that particular site. We see each child as an individual, not a number, and pride ourselves on creating a programme which is responsive to each tamariki's needs and has something for everyone.
It is time for your child to relax and enjoy themselves.
There is no compulsion to participate in any particular activity. Children are presented with a range of activities in specific locations. It could be a quiet book, a game of cards, a boisterous game outside, a movie or a chat with some friends. The choice is theirs. The informal, safe environments that we provide allow tamariki to pursue their own interests, relax and re-energise following their busy school day.
