Quality Child Care Provider Since 2009

OurKidz NZ OSCAR has been operational since December 2009, catering for a holiday programme at the Kaiapoi Bulldogs League rooms. The League rooms were badly damaged in the 2010 earthquakes and we had then relocated to the Kaiapoi Borough School. It has been a long and successful journey for us all and we are now at full capacity for this site.

We offer:

  • Before school programme from 7am to 8.45am

  • After school programme from 2.45pm to 6pm or 3pm to 6pm for surrounding school communities.

  • Our holiday programmes operate from 7.30am to 5.30pm daily and an option for families who require a half-day session which ends at 3pm.

OurKidz NZ OSCAR is a Ministry of Social Development (MSD) approved provider and undertake accreditation reviews every two years by a member of MSD Accreditation team. With this accreditation approval we can offer parents/caregivers the opportunity of applying for the OSCAR Subsidy from Work and Income.

We offer a variety of childcare services, so please browse the options below and get in touch with any questions. Enrolling your children is easy, choose the programme and the days you are needing to have the children cared for. Before and After school programmes are booked every year, for terms 1 through to 4. Should you wish to change your bookings during term, we require you to please complete a change form. Holiday programmes are booked every holidays.

Fruits and Oatmeal Breakfast

7AM TO 8.45AM

Breakfast may be available to the children who get an early start to their school day.

Having a healthy breakfast before starting a school day is linked to improved concentration, increased energy, a higher intake of vitamins and minerals, and even a healthier body weight. Breakfast is especially important for young students whose brains use up about half of the body’s energy.

2.50PM TO 6PM

Socializing is important after a day at school.

We understand the importance of caring for your children in a safe and effective way. With all of the activities we provide, parents can rest assured that your children are safe and are given a number of opportunities to explore a wide range of possibilities to have fun.



7.30AM TO 5.30PM

Holiday Activities for all to enjoy.

Holidays are always so much fun for our group. We have opportunities to visit different places and enjoy the outings on bus trips. Whether it is to the beach, the park, or playground, we look forward to having heaps of fun together.

Please let us know what your childcare requirements  are and we can provide an actual weekly cost for your family.
