At Kids Korner, we endeavour to make everyone's time an enjoyable one. In order to achieve this we must have some basic rules to follow.

3. We do not hit, kick, punch or swear
4. We do not touch other people's property without permission

Our qualified staff has the skills to entertain and satify all age groups with two programs offered: 5 to 8 years and the 9 PLUS. Our service follows the NQF (National Quality Framework): "My time, our place" for Australian school aged children.
