What our parents and kids say:

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude & thanks to the staff at Matipo Skids, Sapna & yourself. Thank you for taking good care of Jewel. It has been really great dealing with you all over time & wish you all the best for the future”.

I just wanted to say how smoothly sKids Matipo is going. It operates smoothly and quietly and the staff are very easy to get on with. It is a quiet, smooth operation and painless for me. Thank you and best wishes.

Wayne Bainbridge – Principal .

“My son, Daniel has been attending Skids Matipo for the last 2 years and attends both the early morning and after school programme. He enjoys the time he spends there, has made lots of new friends, likes the Skids supervisors and gets to complete homework, play and make creative arts and crafts that he can bring home”!

“As a single mother who works full time I can not express how much I appreciate the Skids programme. The staff are friendly and reliable and most importantly, Daniel really enjoys the time he spends there. Thank you so much for the service you provide for parents”.

Amy Guttridge – Parent.

“Thank you All so much for your wonderful, caring service. Adrienne has been very happy at

sKids and often said she felt “loved” there. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending sKids to anyone needing after school care”. Gene Aston.

Thank you to all of your staff for the lovely care of my son Harrison – he is thoroughly enjoying Skids and doesn’t want to go home with his Dad when he picks him up!  Maybe Skids could look after Harry over a weekend so that my husband and I could have a weekend off – ha ha ha!!!
