We like to venture outdoors with special outings (weather dependant of course), like visiting Tip Top Ice Cream or going to the farm across the school. Some days we just play sports, other days we might try a cooking class, like teaching your child how to make sushi! A detailed programme of activities is made available before end of term.

What our parents and kids say

I enrolled my 6 year old son into the Skids Holiday Programme for the first time this year and he really enjoyed the activities and the staff, his favourite trip was to the Tip Top Factory and he can not wait for the up coming day trips. It is great to know that my son is safe while having fun when I am at work.

A big thank you to the Staff at Skids Holiday Programme!

“I am impressed by the professionalism and efficiency shown by the owner as well as the staff supervising the children on a daily basis.

The skids Supervisors are friendly, polite and approachable. They provide a well structured yet varied programme that caters for all ages attending. They know the children well and are always caring, but firm with their supervision.

Skids provides a hassle-free service for a school and has become an integral part of our school community celebrations. I strongly recommend Kim and her team to other schools considering out of school care providers.
