4FUN Is owned and operated by Lynda Bayer. With a back ground in logistics her children had been coming to 4Fun for after school care for nearly 10 years, so when the opportunity to buy the business came up, this provided the balance she was looking for.
Since then we have grown from a caterpillar into a butterfly and we now have a fleet of buses to transport our children to our centre and for our holiday programmes. We have morphed again recently moving into our Adventureland & Café building, this now adds another dimension to our business.
Our team of caregivers and café staff are all dedicated to making every child’s experience here a fun and enjoyable time, whether that be a birthday party, some fun time on the playground or OSCAR care. All our staff are fully trained and are vetted by NZ Police.
Safe, Fun, and Learn while at 4FUN
If you need more time to yourself, whether it be to commute to and from work and or stop at the gym to have a work out, study, or just catch up on house work, then be advised that your children are in safe hands, with the caring staff at 4FUN. As members of the Out of School Care Network, you can be rest assured that your children are in safe hands.
4FUN is open from 6:30am. Drop your children off with some cereal and let us take care of the rest. We have breakfast, complete any unfinished homework, do activities and then we are off to school.
With our after-school programme we pick your child up from school, we take care of homework and after school activities, so you can focus on you! 4FUN is open until 6.15pm.
For our holiday programmes all you need to pack is shoes, drink bottle, breakfast, morning tea and lunch just like you would for school. Afternoon tea and snacks are provided. We have a fleet of buses that we offer to schools and day cares for excursions during the week.
Our before school/afterschool and holiday programme are WINZ and OSCAR approved. Our indoor playground is a safe playing environment for all ages and function rooms available for birthday parties.
We have a build a bear shop in our café, which customers from around NZ come to make a teddy bear of their own.
We are centrally located on Lincoln Road with 25 dedicated off street parking spots available. We are next to Te Pai Park and Netball Waitakere, and have our own grassed areas for the children to play.
While your children are playing on our indoor playground, parents are welcome to enjoy the offerings from our café. We have a comfortable lounge area available for all our guests.
During the day we are a relaxed venue where mothers and coffee groups come to interact with their pre-schoolers, but as the 3 o’clock bell tolls we become a fast-paced noisy environment with our after-school programme, which the children and parents love.
