Our After School Care Programme runs from 2pm to 6pm from Monday to Friday during the school term. We collect children after school has finished and bring them back to the Waimarino Adventure Park for an action-packed afternoon of fun. Your children are provided with a nutritious and delicious afternoon tea, followed by heaps of exciting activities and free play.

Every day we offer a different selection of our Adventure Park activities, mixing things up each day to keep everyone busy and experiencing new things. Activities on offer include swimming, kayaking, rock climbing, pedal boating, fishing, diving boards, the Tarzan swing, drift trikes, and much, much, more!

Your children are looked after by enthusiastic, energetic, competent, and adventurous staff, who love spending their afternoons here in the outdoors with the children.

How much does this all cost?!

After School Care costs $19.50 per child, per day. We have discounts for families, and where eligible, some fees may be covered by WINZ subsidies. Our programme is approved by both WINZ and Oranga Tamariki (previously CYFS).

Which schools do you pick up from?

Currently we collect children from:

  • Te Puna School, Omokoroa Point School, Omokoroa No1 School
  • Bethlehem Primary, Bethlehem College
  • Bellevue School, Otumoetai Intermediate, and Otumoetai Primary

If your child’s school is not listed please get in touch as we may be able to accommodate a pick up if it fits into our bus runs.

Want to beat the afternoon traffic?

We are now offering a FREE bus service after school each day so parents do not need to battle the traffic getting to us.

We are meeting parents at the staff carpark of Bethlehem School on Carmichael Road between 17.20 and 17.30 Monday to Friday.

Do you run this programme every day?

We run Monday to Friday from 2pm to 6pm during the school terms, with the exception of public holidays. If your child’s school is closed for a teachers only day we have the ability to offer a full day of care; this is dependent on the number of children attending, and staff availability. Please get in touch if you know your school is having a teachers only day soon.
