What our parents and kids say:

“My son has been at sKids Henderson for the past two years and I couldn’t think of a better place for him. The staff are trustworthy, friendly and helpful. They help with homework during the week and the extra classes give the chance to improve in subjects or encourage them to try new subjects. The Holiday Programme is great! It has lots of variety and keeps the kids entertained while i’m at work.”

Alexia – Parent.

“My daughter Hayley has been going to SKIDS Henderson since the beginning of this year. A decision not made lightly as I returned to full time work and had in the past always been there to pick her up. I needn’t have worried. The staff are wonderful. Hayley is happy to go there after school and she is thriving with her school work. At school, Hayley has jumped up 2 levels in maths and this is all down to the care provided by the sKids team. Time is set aside for homework which would have been a struggle once we got home. Afternoon tea is provided and then there is the fun. I would thoroughly recommend this programme to any parent”.

Erica Downey – Parent.

I just wanted to extend a HUGE THANK YOU for our first ever experience at a school holiday programme.  I was really apprehensive about sending Sophia

(7yrs) as she’s recently transitioned to a new school and I was worried she’d feel scared about yet another new experience at an unknown school and a new group of unknown carers and children.  When I picked her up on Day 1, shortly after 3pm, she said to me “tomorrow mummy, could you pease pick me up at the same time daddy finishes (after 5pm) so that I can stay longer at the holiday programme?  I really like it!”.

obviously, I was really thrilled!  she has raved about EVERY day, thoroughly enjoyed it, loved the staff team and enjoyed meeting new friends.  Thank you for the variety of activities, the great friendly staff, safe environment, and your flexibility in allowing me to change booked days according to changing work schedules.  Having been at home with her through all other holidays, I worried about the cost – but I can now say, best money ever spent!

Thanks to you and the Team!  Sefa, Gayle and a very happy Sophia 🙂

Just wanted to let you know that Krishna really enjoys going to Skids before and after school. He’s settled in really well (with the trouble maker that he is!) and the teachers there are very lovely to deal with. You Guys do a great Job, so keep it up!!

Thanks Preeta (Parent) Krishna (son)
