op­tions for kids. Kelly Club Alexan­dra man­ager Sharelle Pot­ter says the Club’s pro­gramme pro­vides a wide va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren with all sorts of in­ter­ests.

‘‘We’re giv­ing the kids a bit of choice with what they want to do.’’

An ac­tiv­ity data­base is con­stantly updated by the Kelly Group NZ and the pro­grammes are or­gan­ised and run by lo­cal staff al­low­ing the Kelly Club pro­grammes to best meet the needs of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Chil­dren are en­cour­aged, ed­u­cated and en­ter­tained dur­ing their time on the pro­grammes and the club pro­vides a warm and friendly ‘‘home away from home’’.

Par­ents can con­tinue their work con­fi­dently know­ing their chil­dren are having a great time, Sharelle says.

Sharelle pre­vi­ously ran a Kelly Club in Dunedin and says the Club is a place kids want to go rather than have to go.

‘‘We used to have kids turn­ing up all the time who weren’t meant to be there, to me, that’s the best thing,’’

The Club pro­vides a pro­gramme ev­ery week­day, Mon­day to Fri­day from 2.45pm to 6pm, with flex­i­ble hours for par­ents and an af­ter­noon tea and snack time pro­vided by the Club.
