To help parents suddenly needing to return to the office now covid-19 restrictions are easing, Premium After School Care provider Kids Circle are for the first time offering full flexibility by enabling children to join one or several of their wide-range of professionally-taught classes from now until December 18.
Kids Circle Co-Founder Grace Lazzeri said the 2020 End of School Year Special Offer could also help private school parents whose children will be on holiday from early December by providing a way to keep their children engaged and learning in the afternoons until December 18. “It is also a great opportunity to try out a few different types of classes in our Lindfield and Chatswood centres to see where your child may shine in 2021,” she said.
Special Offer: Readers of the North Shore Times can have a 50% discount on two classes of their choice for this term’s After School program. To claim this, visit www.kidscircle.com.au/enquiries, fill in the form, choose your location and two or more classes and put “Support Local 2020” into the Registration Code box.

Grace said Kids Circle made the offer in response to inquiries from parents who had not booked their children into activities this term, because they were working from home. “The parents are now finding their bosses are expecting them to return to the office, so they urgently needed to find quality, engaging options after school, particularly for their Kindy to Yr 3 children. We spoke to our professional instructors who said they could make it work – they have been terrific at finding solutions for the challenges of 2020.”
The opportunity could also appeal to parents still working from home but who are starting to think there is too much binge TV watching so could offer their child the chance to develop some new talents instead.
At Kids Circle, each afternoon children aged 5 to 10 participate in educational and fun programs including Cooking delivered by Chefs, Art Classes delivered by Visual Artists, K-Pop and Jazz classes deliver by trained Dancers, Karate - Martial Arts by Sensei, Mandarin language classes for beginners taught by Mandarin Teachers, Chess lessons by Sydney Chess Academy and Robotics and Coding by Young Engineers for STEM Projects – a different type of class each day.
“For extra flexibility for busy parents, we are also offering a ‘classes-only’ option. This means parents can drop off their child at 3.45pm then choose whether to pick their child up at 5pm after the class or take advantage of our professionally-designed group tutoring program and supervision until 6 or 6.30pm,” Grace said. A free pick up from school service is still available from Lindfield Public and Chatswood Public schools.
“There are a limited number of places available because some of our regular customers have not yet had to return to work. That means this a great opportunity to see if this sort of more structured, rewarding and professional program works for your child,” said Grace.
“They can attend one day or every day, depending on whether they are interested in the class running on that day. This is a program not childcare, so do talk to your child first and see what excites them.”
In addition to the 2020 End of School Year Special, Kids Circle bookings for Term 1 2021 open on November 24. Booking for the January school holiday programs are also now open for their Chatswood, Lindfield, Northbridge and Ryde locations.
