OUR TESTIMONIALS

What our parents and kids say

“Michelle has honestly enjoyed every single day in the care of you and your staff, and for us as parents, it has been an absolute pleasure to have complete peace of mind knowing that our child is in good hands. It was always fantastic knowing that your child is being taken care of at a place that she actually WANTS to go to.

To quote her this morning when Wilma told her that I will be home from hospital by midday: “Mum, if Dad needs me to take care of him I will go home, but if he doesn’t need me I will
go to sKids”.

Please convey our thanks and appreciation to your staff. you guys provide a crucial service in our community, and the fun and stimulation you provide to the kids is really fantastic. Thank you once again, from Fred, Wilma and Michelle”.

“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.

“I’d like to thank you and everyone at sKids for kindly donating my ticket to Circus Quirkus last week. My mummy and sister and I had a really great time! The show was awesome!
You guys are great!” – Sofie Carter
