Our Weekend Day Respite Programme is staffed by trained Community Support Workers and Teacher Aides from Auckland’s Special School network, and offers a safe, healthy and structured environment for children to spend a fun day.

The Programme takes into account each child’s individual needs, and includes planned activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, games, sports and outings to interesting places, while also allowing time for unstructured activities and fun.

What we provide

We meet with families and children prior to commencement to develop a range of personalised activities, aligned to each child’s needs and goals.

These include:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Free, supervised play
  • Sensory activities
  • Music play

When: 8.30am-4.30pm every second weekend.

Where: Our Weekend Day Respite programme alternates between Spectrum Care’s ‘Makatoa’ Aspirations Centre (5/57 Cavendish Drive, Manukau) and CASS (48 Smallfield Ave, Mt Roskill).

Cost: One full Carer Support Day plus $30, depending on your child’s support needs – as identified in the assessment meeting. A signed and dated Carer Support form can be used as part-payment. Because staffing ratios are worked out in advance, payment is required even if your child is unable to attend.
