Who Are We?
We are a family run business. The director, Wendy Pizzol manages the business alongside her 2 daughters Briana and Davina.
Wendy began her Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) journey in 2012 when she bought a small centre at St Carthage’s Primary School, Lismore and quickly gained momentum, turning the small centre that was averaging 12 kids an afternoon to a number of centres across the Far North Coast of NSW providing before, after and Vacation Care services.
We are well known on NSW’s Far North Coast for our exciting programs that differ greatly from our competitors, our wholesome family approach to creating warm, comfortable environments for children and our awesome team who are always full of energy and big smiles.
About our Educators
How do we differ from the rest? Active Kids ASC only employs the best! We hire staff that don't just have the certificates but the
passion as well! Our team is energetic and fun loving, who go above and beyond in their work. Fit and Active, the AK team can keep up with the kids!
The staff we employ are people we trust, that we know will hold up not only
our centre's values but the values of the school we operate from.
We're a small family operated business and love growing our community. We strive to keep Active Kids a home away from home for your children and we want them to feel comfortable at our centres when mums, dads and carers are at work.
If you have ideas for our program, or feedback we'd love to hear it!
You can also get involved by following our Facebook page, we always post photo updates and love hearing from you here.
Active Kids are Healthy Kids
Our Afternoon Tea menu at AK is always made up of 3-5 different cut fruits and veggies. Often with some hummus and crackers, a yogurt bar, popcorn or maybe some of our very own fresh produce from the gardens.
During Vacation Care we regularly cook different things for lunches, in the past these have been minestrone soup, risotto, bruschetta, bliss balls, dips and stacks more!
At Before School Care breakfast is provided too and we often do a good wholesome cook up of bacon and eggs, pancakes or french toast. When we don't do a cook up kids can choose between, porridge, cereal or toast plus a selection of fruits so the kids are switched on and ready to do their best at school.
Wendy runs a very successful family based after school care service. Their care and attention to the children very much compliments the schools vision. They pay particular attention to
the physical, nutritional and mental wellbeing of the children in their care. Their approachable and 'easy'
going nature is welcomed very much by parents, students and the school.
