After School Care

Friends Holding Hands

Our After School Care provides cubs with a space to relax and unwind after a long day by playing board games, chatting with friends or spending some time reading. Cubs can also be helped with their homework and assignments if needed.

Every afternoon we run the Kai Cubs Cooking Programme. The kids get to help make a healthy afternoon tea, and then we all sit down and eat together. Our Pride Lands Youtube playlist has some good videos of the kids in action in the kitchen.

We provide a variety of structured and fun activities. Once a week we take the children out on a field trip where we go somewhere interesting, learn something new and give the kids some hands-on involvement.

We accept and include all children at Pride Lands. Being neurodiverse, anxious, non-binary, non-verbal, having behavioural struggles or anything else are no barrier, we welcome everyone.

If your child requires extra support during our After School Care, we can provide additional, dedicated, one-on-one mentoring throughout the sessions. See our fees page for the cost.

If you have any questions about how we can support your child or children when they attend Pride Lands, please give us a call.

If it works better for you, we also offer In-Home Care as part of our Pride In Action service. We can pick your children up from school, take them to your home, entertain them, help them with homework or assignments, feed them a healthy snack and leave when you get home from work. See In-Home Care for more information.

Social Development Activities

One part of After School Care that our cubs love is the Social Development Activities that we run. These are aimed at giving children some insight into what different people do for work around the Wellington region.

Find out more about our Social Development Activities and the business that we visit.

Social Development Activities

A fun, bumpy and insightful experience for our tamariki and rangatahi.

This video is of a Social Development visit our After School cubs did to Wellington Regional Hospital’s Simulation Centre to learn about what exactly happens in a hospital.

To see more examples of the great activities our cubs get to do during After School Childcare, see our Pride Lands YouTube playlist.
