sKids Holiday Programme Information

Holiday Programme – October 2021 – Please book by going to: https://skids.aimy.co.nz/

Please see attached the Holiday Programme flyer for October 2021 at sKids Whenuapai. You will note that we are prepared to open if we go down to Level 2 on Wednesday the 6th of October 2021 (currently Level 3 will continue until Tuesday the 5th of October at 11.59pm). We won’t send out invoices until the announcement comes through from the government that we are definitely going to Level 2 (as sKids can’t open until we are down to Level 2). Please get your bookings in for the holiday programme as soon as you can as this helps us in having the right number of sKids leaders on as well as the right amount of resources for the day.

Please see the following notes in preparation for the October 2021 Holiday Programme:

COVID-19 Safety Precautions:

  • Parents and caregivers, at drop-off and pick-up up please wear a mask, sanitise hands, and scan the QR code in the NZ COVID Tracer App. Also make use of our signing in and out of children functionality using your smartphone. Instructions for this will be on-site as well as being emailed out ahead of time.
  • Make sure children have their own drink bottle, lunchbox, and personal items. Staff will oversee regular hand sanitising and reminder them of personal hygiene habits.
  • If your child is unwell they must stay home. If they become unwell throughout the day you will be called to collect them immediately. Our cancellation policy for absence due to sickness will be reduced to 24 hours while at Level 2.

No Devices:

Can we please ask that no devices are brought to the programme (except when they need a phone for emergencies, but then the phones need to stay in their bags throughout the time they are at the programme, this is also at the parents/caregivers/children’s own risk, and we accept no responsibility for these devices).

Important things to remember:

At the Holiday Programme please have your children bring morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Although we do provide a helping of fruit every afternoon.

Your child will also need:

  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen/sunhat (please make sure they bring their own sunscreen to avoid cross contamination)
