AUCKLAND & CHRISTCHURCH SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES

Looking for an exciting and engaging way to keep your children entertained during school holidays? Look no further than SCRATCHPAD’s School Holiday Programme!

Our Auckland and Christchurch-based programme is designed to provide children with the skills and tools they need to succeed in a world of endless opportunities. Our curriculum focuses on coding, robotics, and 3D printing, giving children a head start on developing the logical thinking skills that are critical for success in the modern world.

With locations in St. Lukes, Botany, Albany, Stonefields, Royal Oak, Henderson, Silverdale & Papanui (Christchurch) our small class sizes ensure that each child receives personalized attention and guidance from our expert instructors. We also offer flexible timing options, with both 9am – 3pm and 9am – 5pm programmes available. An early drop-off facility is available that you can choose when booking the holiday programme.

At SCRATCHPAD, we understand the importance of providing a fun and engaging learning environment for children. That’s why our programmes are designed to provide the most value for your child, with regular breaks and activities that are both educational and entertaining.

Enrolling in our School Holiday Programme is easy, and with limited spots available, we recommend registering your child today to avoid missing out on this fantastic opportunity. Don’t settle for a holiday programme that won’t engage your child – give them the gift of coding, robotics, and 3D printing and watch as they discover new passions and develop critical skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.

WHAT DOES TVNZ HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OUR SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES

Children embrace computer coding in school holiday programme with a tech twist

Hi, thanx for following up after the school holiday programme. Asher loved his two day course and we will definitely be interested in another course in the holidays. I have recommended you to friends. Asher has come home with lots of new skills which he has enjoyed sharing with his sister. I think you guys run an awesome programme and are very professional. Please don't quit! A1 rating from us both.
