Chill Out Before and After School Programme

Chill Out Before and After School Care Freyberg Palmerston North

The Chill Out programme aims to provide a safe and stimulating environment that caters for every children's differing age, gender, and cultural background while still attempting to meet individual needs and interests. The programme runs from 7.00am-8.30am and 3.00pm-6.00pm during the school term Monday-Friday (except public holidays).

We have a walking bus pick up system in addition to the van pickup, for those schools further away. If your child attends a school other than those listed below feel free to contact us for further discussion.

At Chill out we offer a well-managed service that meets the needs of the local community running both the Before and After School Care and Holiday programmes from the Red Sox Clubrooms off Tremaine  Avenue.

See below for more information about the Chill Out programmes, however, feel free to contact us any time for more information on (06) 354 3856 or (027) 467 7063.
