About us

Welcome to our sKids Centre where the safety and care of your child is
our number one priority.

If you're looking for a safe, structured and fun environment for your children then
you've come to the right place.  We run our programme on site in the school hall so you won't have to think about pick ups which, reduces the risk of your child travelling to another location.

Please feel free to visit us onsite at Northcote Primary School hall from 2:45pm-6pm during weekdays.
