sKids Waitoki School

Welcome to our sKids Centre @ Waitoki School, 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.

It’s all about having lots of FUN and your kids will have so much fun at our sKids Centre that they won’t want to leave.

Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for the care of school-aged children through a structured and well-balanced programme.
We aim to inspire our children and people to thrive and grow.

We offer our After School Care Programme to Waitoki School and Wainui School.
We provide transport for Wainui School students to attend our sKids Waitoki programme.
We currently do not run Holiday Programmes at sKids Waitoki but we do offer our sKids Stella Maris Holiday Programme located at Stella Maris Primary School, opposite the Silverdale Shops.

All staff are trained according to MSDs approval standard. As an OSCAR approved centre, families are able to apply for a Work & Income NZ OSCAR subsidy.

AFTER SCHOOL CARE (2.30pm – 6.00pm)

We serve a healthy afternoon tea, assist with homework, encourage them to participate in fun activities including arts, baking, and sports as well as plenty of time for free play. You can have peace of mind knowing that your child is safe, secure, and having fun.

“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”.
