What we offer ​

The afternoon programme runs every day that schools are open. We begin picking up children from 2:30 pm. Our closing time for this programme is 6.00 pm Monday to Friday.

When the children arrive at the centre, they are given a healthy afternoon tea of sandwiches, fruit, a biscuit and a drink. Filtered water is always available for everyone. 

If your child has allergies or special dietary needs, we will endeavour to accommodate them. This needs to be discussed with the supervisor at time of registering.

When afternoon tea is over, the children can choose from several different activities such as, Sport or Play outside, Play in the hall, watching a DVD, doing an art/craft activity that is chosen for the day, or playing on the computers. 

ASAP has an extensive range of resources for our kids. We are always looking to the needs of our different age groups and supplying age appropriate play/activities.
