Our Adventure Time Program begins after waiting class, at 14:15pm. Our program is tailored to cater for children who require “after-school” care until such time that their parents can collect them.
Assistance with homework and preparation for weekly spelling tests is carried out with each child every afternoon. Each week’s schedule of fun activities is planned in advance and the children enrolled in our Adventure Time Program thoroughly enjoy these.
