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.

BEFORE SCHOOL CARE (7.00am – 8.30am)

The right start to your child’s day is essential for great learning. At our Before School Care Programme, we provide a comfortable environment that will help your child ease into the day. We serve a nutritous breakfast, provide books, play board games, and run arts and craft activities as we warm up for the start of school.

AFTER SCHOOL CARE (3.00pm – 6.00pm)

We serve a healthy afternoon tea, assist with homework, encourage them to participate in fun activities including arts, baking, and sports as well as plenty of time for free play. You can have peace of mind knowing that your child is safe, secure, and having fun.
For details on “Term’s Activities”, see below.

HOLIDAY PROGRAMME (7.00am – 6.00pm)

We have many fun and engaging activities planned for our holiday programmes. We provide a variety of different options that the kids will enjoy.

We aim to inspire our children and people to thrive and grow.

We offer Before School Care, After School Care, and Holiday Programmes.

Testimonials from sKids Parents

Thank you so much for this term – my kids have loved SKIDS and I have been so impressed with the structure and management of the daily programme, so all credit to you and the team!

I was hesitant about the change of before and after school provider and the boards decision evening after your email I still had my doubts. I would just like to personally thank you for a wonderful provider. As Christian’s parents we are so happy and we could not have asked for a better provider. He has been very happy with sKids.

As Christian’s mom it is not easy to just trust anybody to look after my child so thank you again you give me peace of mind that he is being looked after well. Carleigh will be joining sKids later in the year as she will be starting at Oteha Valley in the last term.

So both my kids will be there.


Thank you for the wonderful job you and your team do with the after school care and holiday programme, my kids really enjoyed their time there.
