Before School Care


All School’s Out programmes are accredited by the Ministry of Social Development ensuring regulatory compliance and Staff:Child ratios are maintained.


We aim to provide programmes that are fun and exciting for the children we look after. Activities are designed to encourage participation and engagement.


Don’t comprise on quality when it comes to the care of your precious children. School’s Out is an award winning provider of OSCAR care.

Our Before School care service is available at many of our centres to make life easier for busy families, or to accommodate parents with an early start to their work day.  All children must be delivered into the centre and signed in by their parent/caregiver as per Ministry of Social Development policies and procedures and therefore ensuring that the appropriate hand-over of care is completed, ensuring that you have peace-of-mind for your child’s safety and well-being.

Most centres provide a nutritious breakfast to help energise your child for the rest of the day.  If the centre doesn’t have the facilities to provide breakfast, your child is most welcome to bring a packed breakfast to eat at our centre.  Please ensure that you deliver your child to us before 8am if you wish them to have breakfast with us.

Quiet activities will be available for your child to do until it is time to go to school.  We will make sure your child gets to class in time, delivering them to school safely in one of our vans if the centre is not within the school grounds.  If the school is within easy walking distance then our staff will accompany the children using the ‘walking school bus’ model maintaining strict staff:child ratios during the walk.
