Waitohu School

Kia-ora and welcome to our awesome Waitohu School After School Care Programme.

Conveniently based onsite within the grounds at Waitohu School, our fantastic team offer a professional service that provides a welcoming, safe, fun environment in which your kids can simply be kids. Playing and having fun with their friends while positively engaging with our crazy crew becomes the perfect place to be at after a fully structured day of school work.

Each day when your kids finish school they can cruise straight over to their school hall for some fun free play time with loads of sports gear or arts & crafts equipment to get creatively wild with.

Homework support is available on request or they can simply unwind with a provided yummy after school snack to fill their tummies after a hard day at school. During their remaining time at our programme, they can have an absolute blast playing all types of fun games and doing really cool activities which keeps them fully engaged until you are ready to pick them up.

Don’t be surprised if they don’t want to leave.

Our awesome team are onsite actively guiding your kids to explore their interests, try new things, teaching how to get on with one another and most importantly guiding kids to be themselves and having loads of fun in doing so. Our Waitohu Fun Zone Crew pride themselves on getting to know your kids really well and are not afraid to get on in and have a pile of fun with the kids.

So if you are a busy working family looking for after school childcare support; enter the Fun Zone and let us be your trusted after school option to take care of your kids, until you are ready to pick them up at the end of your working day. (Open till 7pm every school night for our busy parents)
