All our programmes are OSCAR approved by the Ministry of Social Development and thus parents may be able to apply for Work and Income OSCAR subsidies towards the cost of their childcare. Eligible families could pay as little as $2.00 per day.

Come and visit us onsite to discuss your requirements.


“…You and Angela are so thoughtful. We have made such a great decision bringing our children to Skids Taupaki. I want others to see the extra mile you go through. The kids just think the world of you. You have changed my son, I hope you know that.”

– Anita Nixon (Jack & Alexis’ Mum)

“My son has been attending SKIDS before and after school care at Taupaki School a few times a week now for about the last year. He loves going and is always asking me if I can work late again so that he can go to SKIDS. They are always doing fun activities and all of the caregivers are just fantastic with the children. I love sending him there knowing that he has a blast and is well looked after.”

– Stephanie Keates (Chase’s Mum)
