ECAT - After School Care in Miramar


It's all GO from 3:00pm-6:00pm

A soon as 3:00pm rolls around, we start with some awesome afternoon tea to keep our kids going. We have the amazing Miramar and Maupuia Community Centre to base our activities out from. That includes the park and play ground at the back of the centre, with loads of space for football, games and heaps of running around.

"ECAT is a fun place for kids. There are always cool activities going on. I go to WBS so I'm normally picked up by the new Tranzit bus. We also have quiet time to do homework or read". - Ollie Yr 5 2018. 

ECAT - School Holiday Programme


Games, the Beach, Arts/Crafts, Cooking, Movies at the Roxy... 

We have it all at ECAT. Miramar has so much to offer locally, but we don't just stop here. If we're not at the beach or the local Roxy Movie theatre catching the hottest kids movie in town, we're probably cooking up a storm at home base.
