The HitPlay programmes provide a safe and exciting environment for children to enjoy after their busy day at school. Our programmes have a range of activities for children of different ages with an emphasis on being physically active, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, building relationships, confidence and having fun. We provide active indoor and outdoor activities, time for homework and afternoon tea.
Staff receive full induction training, hold current first aid certificates and are police vetted. The Hit Play programmes are all MSD approval and parents are able to access the WINZ OSCAR subsidy.
Our programmes are designed to help your children develop co-ordination, confidence and self awareness. All while having fun and playing games. Should you have any concerns about your child, or if your child has special requirements whether dietary or other please discuss this with us.
Bookings are essential as we need to know who is attending on a daily basis.
During Term Time, our After School Programmes have semi-structure to their afternoon. Children arrive just after 3pm, and then have afternoon tea – a time for coming together and eating and interacting politely and respectfully. Then we offer homework assistance. For those kids who don’t have homework, there is actively supervised ‘free play’ time and staff introduce the planned activities for the day.
Our Before School programmes are a great way to start your child's day at school. The aim is to have fun, enjoy breakfast and get off to school happy and ready to engage.
FREE TRANSPORT is available for our before and after school programmes.
Transport is available during the holidays for our Rakaia families, there is a fee for this service.
Our holiday programme's are a time to recognise that kids need a break away from the structure of school, and a great time for them to be exposed to new and exciting experiences. So that's what we do!
All HitPlay holiday programmes offer three structured activities per day (morning, afternoon and 3-6pm) along with a number of child lead activities, so there is plenty to keep your child/ren busy, stimulated and smiling.
At Alert Level 1 we are asking parents if your child is unwell or they are unwell to remain away from the programme. Should your child become unwell while at the programme you will receive a call to collect them. As new information, guidelines and recommendations are announced regarding COVID-19, we too are updating our health and safety practices and what measures we’re taking to ensure the safety of children in our care.
