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,

Fred, Wilma and Michelle”.

“My two boys have been attending SKIDS after school care and the holiday programmes for a couple of years. I would highly recommend SKIDS to anyone needing after school care for their children.The team are wonderful, the kids are settled and happy in their care.  They are always excited when I tell them that it is a ‘SKIDS DAY’ afterschool.

………. often goes beyond the call of duty with the time he spends with the kids and getting to know how as individuals they work – I appreciate his honesty with me on all matters arising with the kids.

After school and in the holidays they have a wide variety of activities/games  planned for the kids and I love when I come to collect the kids that they are always down on the field playing some sort of ball or outdoor game.  In the summer I always find my ‘water baby’ in the swimming pool being supervised by one of the SKIDS staff.

It certainly takes the guilt out of being a working Mum!”
