All fees are based on your booking requirements with full time, part time and casual options available.

Please contact us directly for more information about fees.

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.

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.

We’ll feed them, help them with their home work, let them play then do a fun activity with them so you can rest assured that they are safe, secure and having the time of their life.

We run After School (3.00pm – 6.00pm), and Holiday Programmes (7.30am – 6.00pm).

To find out more about the programmes we offer and our opening hours please call or email us.

With the highest rate of Oscar subsidy full time After School Care will cost nothing per week! and with 46 hours of full holiday subsidy at $5.37 per hour and a full time booking the holiday programme will be free also!  Please ask us how.



  1. The staff are very friendly and I like the fact that every time I pick up or drop off my children everyone is smiling and happy. The space is clean and tidy and there is a perfect mix of outdoor and indoor time. The staff are very sun smart and I appreciate the hats and sunscreen rule. We tried this holiday programme for the first time and we won’t be going anywhere else now. The children loved it and for me it was perfect as it was onsite at the school where I work!
  1. Lucas is very happy with the variety of activities available. He is also eating the healthy afternoon tea provided which is really great. Sal is very experienced and very much in control of the kids.
  1. Sal’s concern over the kids is amazing, she has warmth and humour and will go the extra mile with the kids. I also love the leadership growth she promotes between the older kids and the younger ones. Love her! So does our boy!
  1. Cardinal McKeefry is a great programme. I like the fact that the kids are playing outside when the weather is sunny, rather than sitting in all the time.
