Welcome to School’s Out Tauriko. We are based in the Tauriko Settlers Hall and we offer parents and children a safe and positive environment where children aged 5-13 years can learn and play while having fun.

We provide after school care and holiday programmes. Our programme provides nutritious afternoon tea and if requested the opportunity to complete homework from Monday to Thursday. The children experience a safe environment where they can explore, play and focus on relaxing, laughter and fun! We aim to provide a ‘home away from home’ setting for the children in our care.

Children are encouraged to participate in activities with a ‘You will never know unless you try’ approach.

Helping and guiding children is vital to give them every opportunity possible to further their innate learning abilities and thus develop their potential to the fullest.  Utilising the unique skills of our team we provide a diverse range of indoor and outdoor activities.

After School Care

Our after school sessions include afternoon tea and an opportunity for children to complete their homework.  We communicate closely with the school, supporting and reinforcing their values.  A range of activities are on offer including group games, crafts, sports, and baking.

Holiday Programmes

Our holiday programmes usually follow a theme and include a couple of trip days per week to local attractions.  The centre-based days are a hive of activity, with children given a range of activities to choose from.  We also understand that children sometimes need to rest and relax so they can go back to school ready to learn

Drop in and see us at the Tauriko Settlers Hall anytime during operating hours.  Melanie and the team welcome your enquiry.
