sKids are New Zealand's before and after school care leaders. Standing for Safe Kids in Daily Supervision, sKids is a family of families dedicated to growing awesome kiwi kids. They offer affordable out of school care to primary and intermediate aged school children at sKids centres across New Zealand. More than 6,500 tamariki come through their doors each day and they consider it a great privilege to support parents, schools and communities.

They want all kids to feel AWESOME about who they are, so their programmes have been designed to grow core capabililites in kids so they flourish in life.
