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.
