Holiday Programme:7.30am - 6pm Monday - Friday during Beckenham Te Kura o Pūroto School holiday periods (closed between Christmas and New Years). 

We have 2 excursions a week.  Our days are filled with games, crafts and cooking.  We have plenty of free time for children to unwind also.  We will go on walks to surrounding parks and library when we can. 

We ask children to come with sun-hats, packed lunch (NUT FREE) and a water bottle everyday. As well as togs and towels during December and January Holiday programmes.  We provide breakfast up until 8.15am every morning, as well as morning and afternoon teas (served at 3pm so only for those booked in for full day).

Our programme changes every time, so for a detailed description check programme guide (available 4 weeks prior to programme beginning from either below or under forms and our Facebook group).
