We provide a Fun, Safe and Constructive Environment for your children at Afterschool Care. We have trained staff and are WINZ approved for funding. Your child/ren can be supervised and assisted with any homework or simply fill in the time with activities and play.

Whether your child needs caring for until 4pm, 5pm or 6pm, or if they need caring for all five days of the week or just one day, then we can help you.

Kids really enjoy our Afterschool programme which is always great to see as a parent & caregiver.

We'll provide them with afternoon tea, supervise their home work, let them play, then do a fun activity with them so you can be rest assured that they are safe, secure and having a fun time.
