Our programmes are designed to be fun and educational. We help your child develop interests and skills in hobbies and activities such as:

  • Arts & Crafts

Our parents say:

"Thanks for providing a great, fun environment for my children, they had a blast."

"Please pass on our thanks to the staff as our son had been a little apprehensive to start with but now he is desperate to get back."

"You're doing a great job, and I certainly appreciate your work with my child, who is a bit of a challenge sometimes."

"Your program was such a success that the children asked my husband and I (on a few occasions) not to pick them up before 4:30pm otherwise they would miss out on special things that were still going on at that time."

"My children are so secure and comfortable with the staff, venue and programmes - I couldnt ask for anything more. Fees are so affordable even for myself, a solo working mother of two."

CASPA is a member of the OSCAR Network Christchurch and is proudly supported by the Ministry of Social Development.
