YIKES stands for Youth and Kids Engaged in Enterprising Skills. Age range – 5 to 14 years.
We have several venues in Nelson and Richmond including: Roadhogs Indoor Minigolf, Nelson Central School, Auckland Point School and Victory Primary School. We provide after school care at each of these locations and holiday programmes based at Nelson Central School.
We want to be an extension of home for all our children, a place they enjoy coming to and feel comfortable enough to chill out or participate in a group activity or engage in their own project.
Our programme is balanced, we don’t just focus on one field like sports because our children aren’t all sporty or they may feel like sports one day and just playing with friends the next. We provide choice: club activities or independent spaces.
All staff including volunteers are police vetted.
Ministry of Social Development (MSD) approved therefore winz subsidies available.
