Juniors’ homework club
Biz – E – Kidz is trialling a homework space in the juniors aftercare. Depending on demand, each Wednesday and Thursday we will dedicate space and a Biz – E – Kidz educator for children who choose to do their homework while at after school care. At this point, it is optional and geared towards grade 3s, though grades 1 and 2s are welcome also. Feedback is welcome on the email address below
