The accent is on fun and offering a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities to keep children happy and stimulated. Our programmes are paced to include periods of active play and some ‘chill-out’ time.

From Monday to Thursday we organise structured activities and on Friday, it’s ‘free play’ when children choose what they’d like to do.

When it’s fine, we’re outside playing games like Rippa Rugby, swingball, Frisbee, football, basketball or skipping and other fun age group games. The hall is packed with stuff to keep kids entertained for hours, and when it’s raining. There’s a games table, art and craft activities, Lego®, dolls, dress-ups, lots of books and sometimes movies.


We’re based at Bellevue School in Bancroft Terrace in Newlands, Wellington.

We operate from the school hall, conveniently located in the middle of the grounds with easy access to two junior play areas. There are two other play areas and a huge field on the lower level with a slide and a fort.

We also have a quiet room with two computers and a range of books. Children are encouraged to participate in group activities but if they don’t want to, that’s kapai. We’re so well resourced that we can cater for all children, needs and age groups.
