GET TO KNOW US

We 
are passionate about quality childcare!

In 2007, we set out to provide a great service for children and their families. A place where incredibly talented and passionate people could make a positive difference to the lives of children.
We knew back then that we had to create a culture that would foster that greatness and in turn create amazing child-centered ‘special places’.

From humble beginnings, this philosophy has remained our central theme and as we move forward on our journey, we aim to ensure that we hold true to our beliefs and deliver a ‘best-practice’ service which is delivered by people who are dedicated to and are passionate about the welfare and development of children.
Although facilities and equipment are important it is really the ideas, talents and energy of the people that is going to make a real difference.

Our story

We love communities!

School’s Out is a Tauranga-based Social Enterprise wholly owned by the Wright Family Foundation. No individuals benefit financially from the services we provide. Any surpluses that are generated are transferred to the Wright Family Foundation for distribution to other charitable entities within the education sector.

This means that we not only have a positive influence on those directly involved in our centres, but we can also play a role in improving the lives of those in the wider community.

School’s Out fully supports the work of the Wright Family Foundation and the investment they are making in providing educational services that improve the lives and prospects of New Zealanders.

Our philosophy

“Ko taku wāhi motuhake”

Meaning “my special place”. School’s Out has a vision to create unique and special programmes where we have “Safe and happy children, happy parents, happy families” which ultimately leads to “Helping families reach their goals.”

We know families are busy and with out-of-school care becoming more of a necessity than a desire these days, we want to ensure that your children receive the best possible care when they’re not with you. Therefore we strive in our programmes to ensure that School’s Out really is “The best place between school and home.”

If you live in an area where we do not currently service and believe there is a need for an accredited OSCAR provider that is able to offer WINZ subsidies in your area, please contact us today to discuss further.
