sKids began because two mums needed after school care for their children

Safe Kids in Daily Supervision or sKids began in 1996 when two mothers recognised the need for structured Out-of-School Care for primary school aged children.

Since the opening of the first sKids Centre in Auckland, sKids has expanded under the guidance of the owners Dawn Engelbrecht and Bev Parsons to more than 70 centres nationwide.

You can find a sKids Centre at a school near you in Whangarei, Rodney, Auckland, Thames, Papamoa, Whanganui, Horowhenua, Wellington, Christchurch, Asburton, Timaru and Queenstown.

OUR TESTIMONIALS

Without doubt the best form of praise comes from sKids kids and their parents

“Michelle has honestly enjoyed every single day in the care of you and your staff, and for us as parents, it has been an absolute pleasure to have complete peace of mind knowing that our child is in good hands. It was always fantastic knowing that your child is being taken care of at a place that she actually WANTS to go to.

To quote her this morning when Wilma told her that I will be home from hospital by midday: “Mum, if Dad needs me to take care of him I will go home, but if he doesn’t need me I will go to sKids”.

Please convey our thanks and appreciation to your staff. you guys provide a crucial service in our community, and the fun and stimulation you provide to the kids is really fantastic. Thank you once again, from Fred, Wilma and Michelle”.

“Thank you All so much for your wonderful, caring service. Adrienne has been very happy at sKids and often said she felt “loved” there. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending sKids to anyone needing after school care”. Gene Aston.
