All fees are based on your booking requirements with full time, part time and casual options available.

Please contact us directly for more information about fees.

All our programmes are OSCAR approved by the Ministry of Social Development and thus parents may be able to apply for Work and Income OSCAR subsidies towards the cost of their childcare. Eligible families could pay as little as $2.00 per day.

Come and visit us onsite to discuss your requirements.

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.

We run an After School (3.00pm – 6.00pm), Before School (7.00am – 8.30am) and Holiday Programme (8.00am – 6.00pm).

We are based in the Puhinui School, so your kids will be in a familiar school environment. We are operating from the sKids building on site..

We will provide them with a nutricious afternoon tea, assist with homework, arrange a variety of pre-planned activites that include Art & Craft, Music & Drama, Sports & Games, Technology & Cooking and lots and lots of FUN as well as plenty of time for supervised free-play!  You can have peace of mind knowing that your child is safe, secure and having the time of their life.

If you are studying or working (full time, part time, shift work, receiving CDA or sickness benefit) you may qualify for Work & Income NZ OSCAR subsidy. (Conditions apply.)
