“very happy with staff”

“Taegon enjoyed the holiday programme as there were lots of activities and there were not many children there on the days when she attended”

“My two boys have been attending sKids after school care and the holiday programmes for a couple of years. I would highly recommend sKids to anyone needing after school care for their children.Stephen and his team are wonderful, the kids are settled and happy in their care.  They are always excited when I tell them that it is a ‘sKids day’ afterschool.”

“Stephen often goes beyond the call of duty with the time he spends with the kids and getting to know how as individuals they work – I appreciate his honesty with me on all matters arising with the kids.”

“After school and in the holidays they have a wide variety of activities/games  planned for the kids and I love when I come to collect the kids that they are always down on the field playing some sort of ball or outdoor game.  In the summer I always find my ‘water baby’ in the swimming pool being supervised by one of the sKids staff.”

“It certainly takes the guilt out of being a working Mum!”

Children have the time of their lives at sKids St Mary’s Northcote!
