KARORI WEST OSCAR GROUP
WHO ARE WE
We are a parent’s co-operative group, providing after school care and
holiday programmes for the children of Karori West Normal School.
We are located in front of the junior playground in what is known as the OSCAR den.
The parents form a committee to manage the group and to employ experienced childcare workers to run the programme. We are also registered as an Incorporated Society and have been approved by the Ministry of Social Development.
What services do we offer
We offer an after school care programme and a holiday programme.
After school care runs Monday to Friday during the school terms, between 3:00pm and 5:45pm.
Holiday programme runs during the school holidays and over summer, Monday to Friday, between
8:00am and 5:45pm. Please note that our holiday programme is very popular and places are given on a first-in, first-served basis. We only provide places for children already enrolled in after school care.
Holiday programmes are a mixture of themed day taking place at the OSCAR den and trips. Our programme caters for all ages and abilities.
Where are we located
