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 Before School (7.30am – 8.45am), After School (3.00pm – 6.00pm), and Holiday Programmes (7.30am – 6.00pm).

With the highest rate of Oscar subsidy full time After School Care will cost nothing per week! and with 46 hours of full holiday subsidy at $5.37 per hour and a full time booking the holiday programme will be free also!  Please ask us how.



The sKids programme is extremely well run. The staff are friendly and caring and do things from the heart. They go above and beyond to be kind to our children, ensuring their wellbeing and safety, and they truly do support the children and parents in every way. I would like to make a special mention to Akemi who runs this programme so well, she is kind, considerate, warm and caring and she has been an amazing support to our family and to me as a single mum especially.

Thank you to all the amazing staff at sKids Karori! My children and I love you all and thank you for everything you do for us every day! We are so grateful to have you!

As I am a single mom with care of my two kids 7 days a week, not only has sKids helped me with the physical looking after of my kids but also taking some of the emotional pressure because I feel that my kids are safe and well looked after.

Thank you sKids!

When I made the life changing decision to have to go back to work full time while our kids were still little, sKids were top of my list for child care. They are so easy to deal with, nothing is a problem. I know when I pick them up at the end of the day they are happy, well entertained and safe.

Thanks so much.
