Breakfast Club Information

For Karori Normal School and Marsden College families that require before school care, Breakfast Club offers a chance to relax and have a good breakfast before school. Breakfast Club starts at 7.15, and the children are walked to school.

After School Care Information

During the school term our After School Care programme runs from 3.00 to 6.00pm. Every day, there are a wide range of activities to choose from and afternoon tea is provided. Children are seperated by age group, with 5 to 7 years olds (SMARTIE5 and Juniors) being seperate to 8 and above year olds (Seniors). The SMARTIE5 and Juniors join the Seniors at the end of the day. 

On Mondays and Tuesdays the children get to use the soft play playground in Te Kororia as part of the day’s programme. 

Holiday Programme Information

During the school and summer holidays we run all day care for children ages 5-13, with a wide range of age appropriate activities, as well as outings such as trips to the pool, local parks and movies. Each day has a unique theme that adds to the fun, such as ‘Under the Sea’, ‘Barbie Disco’ and ‘Wheels Day’.
