After School Adventures

Our Story

In July 2018, the little gem, we know now as After School Adventures was purchase by the “Little Monkey’s LTD” group. We set out to provide a great service for children and their families. A place where the staff who are passionate people, wanted to make a positive difference to the lives of our children. We knew that we had to create a culture that would foster that greatness and in turn create an amazing child-centered special place.

From humble beginnings, this philosophy has remained our central theme and as we move forward on our adventure, we aim to ensure that we hold true to our beliefs and deliver a best-practice service, which is delivered by people who are dedicated about the welfare and development of our children. Although the facilities and equipment are important, it is really the ideas, talents and energy of the people that make a real difference.

All of our After School Care and Holiday Programmes comply with government regulations and are audited on a regular basis. As a parent you could be eligible for an OSCAR Subsidy which will help you with your fees.




“The best place between school and home.”


           “ko taku wāhi motuhake,”                          “my special place”

After School Adventures has a vision to create unique and special programmes where we have safe and happy children, happy parents and happy families, which ultimately leads to helping families reach their goals.

We know that our families are busy and with before and after school care becoming more of a necessity than a desire, we want to ensure that children receive the best possible care when they’re not at home. Therefore we strive in our programmes to ensure that After School Adventures really is “The best place between school and home.”

Our After School. Our Family. Our Community

After School Adventures is not a class room. It is a time for your children to relax and enjoy themselves. There is no compulsion to participate in any particular activity. Children are presented with a choice of activities in specific locations. It could be quiet reading, it could be a board game, it could be a boisterous game outside, it could be a quiet chat with some friends, it could be playing on time allowed technology. We value that we are always learning from our children, so we believe in children choosing their own activities.  Below is a few of the favorite activities our kids have come up with that they really enjoy :

  • Life Skills – baking, building, fixing things and problem solving
  • Outdoor Skills – Orientation Courses , Outdoor survival Challenges
  • Outdoor Games – Tee ball, Soft Ball, 
  • Art & Craft
  • Just hanging out with newly made Friends

Our Activities

Here at After School Adventures, we know the importance of “After School Activities” for our kids. So we came up with the plan, of making sure that kids don’t miss out on their after school sport, extra tuition, clubs or dance. We will take your child to their activities, and if needed will wait there with them to bring them back to ASA, at no extra cost.
