WHAT DO WE OFFER?

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 run After School (3.00pm – 6.00pm), Before School (7.00am – 8.30am), and Holiday Programmes (7.00am – 6.00pm).

At sKids Crofton Downs we love Celebrating different cultures by incorporating them into our weekly themes. We encourage the children to learn about different cultures through fun, engaging activities, like cooking cultural food, exploring traditional art styles and playing games in different languages. Our staff have a broad range of skills so that we can run activities to suit any child or personality type, whether they love playing sports outdoors, quietly making friendship bracelets or anything in between. We provide a safe environment where children can make friends, discover new interests and most importantly, have fun!

Our Programme Manager Julia, comes from a background in performing arts, she love running gymnastics sessions and sharing her knowledge of circus disciplines with the children. Some things they’ve covered include basic hula hoop, juggling and balancing, even creating their own show and learning about the creative process.

We encourage the children to give their input wherever possible and use their suggestions to plan our next themes/activities. An example of this is working with the children to create a day dedicated to inventive ways to use their favourite resource, lego. We are very lucky to have so many spaces that the children at our site can enjoy, this includes a big hall, playground, bottom field and even a skatepark.

As a team we strive to provide each child with a variety of opportunities to be inspired and spark their creativity. We run baking activities, craft projects and team sports so that children with different interests can all find something they enjoy. We love getting to know the children and learning from them just as much as they learn from us. We are attentive and always there to provide guidance so that each child can find their passion and have fun at our site.

OUR TESTIMONIALS

At skids we all have a yummy afternoon tea and then I get to do what I love by sitting down and drawing, they help me with finding reference pictures for my art.

My son has been attending S.K.I.D.S Crofton Downs for three terms and a few days during the holiday. The staff are very friendly and professional, happy to answer any questions. It’s a pleasure to deal with them and to know that my son is in safe hands. He loves the freedom to choose from indoor and outdoor activities to burn that extra energy and have a great time with his friends. Happy child at the end of the day, I can’t ask for more. Thank you very much Skids team 🙂
