Good day Amazing team, I must admit I was one of those parents who was very hesitant but keeping an open mind, and you guys really made a huge impression on me and my kids. SKIDS at Howick Primary is really amazing. Never thought you would top the previous program, but my kids had so much fun! You offer a variety of activities for the kids so its current and fun. And never the less as a solo mum with 3 kids something like you giving them snacks really help me take away the stress of wondering what to feed them. Your team is just amazing, getting involved with the kids, I love it. My kids said this is the BEST Holiday program ever and they been to a few. Thank you so much, you guys are so accommodating and patient even when I had to do my part. I cannot express enough how happy I am, and never the less when the staff asked after the Holiday program was over asking how my son was, that really surprised me, cause it means they actually thinking about kids and who attended even not being in Primary anymore. Again no complaints, it was a process to get it all sorted but very happy with SKIDS HOWICK. You make my life easier, and I feel happy and feel my kids are safe.
