About School’s Out PALMY

“The best place between school and home.”

Why Choose Us?
Children at School’s Out Palmy become a part of the family. We have a reputation as being the best in the city, and we strive to maintain this position. Above all, we work hard to ensure we always provide quality care for our families.

Similarly, we have a diverse array of planned activities catering to a wide range of interests. Children enjoy cooking, creating art, playing games, and participating in a range of other activities. Homework can also be completed at School’s Out, which leaves more time for fun when you get home.

In addition, all staff are police vetted and enjoy being around children. Furthermore, our centre is MSD approved and WINZ subsidies are available for eligible families.

Our Setup
We have lots of room for structured and unstructured play. We are based in a cosy house which has been renovated into our lovely centre within the BestStart community. Our inside area makes great use of the space to ensure there is lots of room for fun. Our outside area is well equipped with a large sandpit and great area for a variety of play activities.

Schools We Currently Service:
Central Normal, Cloverlea, College Street, Hokowhitu, Our Lady of Lourdes, Newbury, Parkland, Russell Street, St James, St Marys, Terrace End, and Winchester.
