New Parnell location

From the beginning of the 2019 school year, Parnell Trust's Parnell holiday location is Queen Victoria House at 27 Glanville Terrace. Please use the Gate 2 entrance. (See maps below)

You'll find us to the left of the car park in a hall-sized room at the corner of the old Queen Victoria School building. It’s an excellent base for starting and ending each day’s activity -  loaded with activities and games to keep your children entertained or allow  them just to chill. 

To ensure the children have the best time, we will be bussing them to Epsom Normal Primary School each morning at 9am and returning them to our Parnell base by 3pm in the afternoon, ready for you to pick them up. At Epsom Normal Primary School, where we’ve run Before and After School Programmes for many years,  children will enjoy plenty of active time and fun at the school’s extensive playground areas and courts.

Longer hours:  7.30am - 6pm
Our longer hours are great for working parents - drop your children off at the location you've selected as early as 7.30am and collect them as late as 6pm.


The best care for your kids
We take the best care of your children. Most of our staff are trainee primary school teachers and all our programmes meet Department of Child, Youth and Family Services standards. We've had years of holiday programme experience and have well-developed systems and procedures in place to ensure excellent care. For all our activities and at all times we ensure there are staff qualified in First Aid treatment.


Water Safety
On all our offsite programme activities we have a minimum of one staff member for every eight children. Whenever we take children anywhere near water - to pools or beaches - we increase our staff numbers so we have one member of staff for every five children.


Subsidies available
Parnell Trust's programmes are accredited by the Ministry of Social Development, so subsidies are available.
