Out of School

Can't get enough of Kaurilands? These are some of the extra things that you can get involved in outside of school hours, some run by members of the community and others by staff.

Out of School Care

At Kaurilands we have an ‘Out of School Care’ programme run by CARE 4 KIDZ. This programme is offered daily and currently runs out of the Hall.

The aim of CARE 4 KIDZ is to provide a safe, stimulating and caring environment for the pupils of Kaurilands School, before and after school hours and in the school holidays. This programme is approved by the Department of Child, Youth and Family services and therefore parents/caregivers may qualify for a subsidy from WINZ. 

CARE 4 KIDZ runs programmes at the following times:

7.00am – 8.30am
3.00pm – 6.00pm each day
Services are not available on weekends, public holidays or teacher only days. 

An information brochure is available from the supervisor in the Hall after 2.45pm each day, or contact Els on 027 362 8494 for further information.

Holiday Programmes

CARE 4 KIDZ runs a holiday programme from 7.00am to 5.30pm every day during the holiday break, with the exception of the Christmas holidays, when we run only run a programme for the two weeks before school starts.  

Please contact Els on 027 362 8494 for holiday programme content.
