Our 7 year old daughter and 5 year son have been attending St Joseph Skids afterschool program since last year and absolutely love it! Our daughter is very artistically minded and has really enjoyed the variety of arts and craft activities that are available each day. Our son loves nothing more than running, jumping and kicking balls and every time I collect them he is always engrossed in some game of sport with the older kids. I have also been extremely happy with the amount of time and attention that is spent ensuring the kids have completed their homework each day. I was very impressed when earlier this year Elena called me to suggest we provide additional learning sheets for both the children to complete each day, as she felt they were completing their homework very quickly and would benefit from some additional learning activities. The structure at St Joseph Skids suites our children and as parents we are extremely happy with the care and attention the children receive.

Both my children attend SKIDS at St Josephs Takapuna, under the care of Elena and Ian Watson. Both children really enjoy their time at SKIDS and it’s incredibly reassuring knowing that they are under such wonderful care. My girls return home having done their homework for the day and having played the afternoon away with friends. Snacks are provided and the team are actively engaged with the kids every time I arrive to pickup. Elena and Ian are also extremely safety conscious and run a tight ship, something that as a parent I truly appreciate.
Brodie

My kids really enjoy to go to SKIDS Takapuna. My son, who loves sports, always find the space and the team players to start a game. My daughter is more into craft and painting, and she also found activities to do, and projects to pursuit. But, over all, they have been a support for us and create a comfortable environment for the kids.
