Busy mum Beth says the best thing about Pinarc's programs is that while her tween daughters are enjoying time with their friends at Pinarc, it gives her a chance to recharge her batteries, taking some respite from her caring and parenting responsibilities.
Beth's daughters, Penny and Laura, attend Pinarc's after school program every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the school term. Beth says the range of activities on offer, such as swimming, rock climbing, movies, bowling, craft and cooking, really caters to her girls' interests. "The activities are great and it feels so safe for them," she says. "It's a great chance for them to be more social as well."
The girls are picked up by Pinarc from their school, meaning no interruption to Beth's workday. With the after school program available until 6pm, she feels confident in being able to complete her workday without rushing out the door, and can even take some time to enjoy a coffee or some exercise before picking them up. She says the girls never want to come home too early anyway, as they're busy socialising with friends and engaging in the activities.
Beth remembers the day Laura jumped in the car and told her, "Mum, I had so much fun today. I just want to tell everyone I love Pinarc so much!"
Recently, Penny and Laura also joined Pinarc's Saturday program. The girls have chosen activities and groups that suit them best and attend on the days that suit. The entire family is looking forward term 4, as Penny and Laura have chosen different dates to attend, meaning Beth can enjoy some one on one time with each of her children, while the other enjoys some time with friends, doing activities such as baking, listening to and making music, playing games, going out to lunch, golf and swimming.
The program runs on Saturdays from 9am - 3pm, which gives plenty of time for participants to really enjoy themselves, without leaving them exhausted or overstimulated.
Beth says one of the best things about the Saturday program is that it really takes into account the interests of the people attending, with the staff doing everything they can to cater to those interests. "The Saturday program provides such a great opportunity to meet with other people, get out of the house on the weekend, and really have a good time."
