Each child is a different kind of flower, altogether they make this world a beautiful garden.

At sKids Waterlea, we pride ourselves on creating and providing a safe and fun environment for our children as well as building great relationships with their parents and the school. We offer before school care, after school care and holiday programme.

We are located in the school hall, a large area and very spacious for kids to run around and play. We have access to the school turf, which is a safe gated outdoor area outside the school hall for our kids to enjoy. We always enjoy bringing out our sports equipment to get some fresh air on nice days!

BSC : 7:30AM-8:30AM

We start off our morning with breakfast, board games and arts and crafts already set up. We encourage our children to have breakfast every morning when they walk through our doors! We provide a nutritional menu of cereal and toast with fresh fruits as well as yummy pancakes or toasties with a warm milo on a cold chilly day. Once we’ve cleaned up our breakfast, we stretches and do some fitness drills and games to help kids boost their energy. It’s important for our kids to get their body moving and have a happy start to their day before they head of to school!


We provide afternoon tea with a nutritional rotating menu inclusive of fruits and vegetables. During our structured programme, we help children with homework, play fun games, pull out our board games and arts and crafts and get creative, bake and cook all sorts of nutritional yummy food and keep active playing fun sports.

  • Dodgeball competition in the afternoons
    • Every afternoon our children enjoy keeping active and enjoy getting competitive playing dodgeball.
  • SCUDS – Skids Clean Up Day.
    • Every Thursdays, when the day is nice and sunny, we like to play our part in the school and help keep the school grounds tidy. We go around picking up rubbish with the children as well as exploring the school, teaching our children about the environment and how its awesome to be a tidy kiwi! Don’t worry we always wash our hands before and after and have hand sanitizer at all times!

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!” – Sofid Carter
