We provide a Fun, Safe and Constructive Environment for your children at Before School Programme. 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 quiet activities and play.


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


We'll provide them with breakfast, 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.
