IT'S ALL ABOUT FAMILY ...

First and foremost, we are parents to 5 amazing blessings, Jade (16), Emerson (5), Sammy (4), Praise (3) and David (2).  Kids on f.o.o.t is all about providing a service to all families and children that we desire  and see fit for our own children.

Lealofi: As a mother, Primary and ECE trained teacher, it has been made obvious that our children are crying out for an environment in which they can be valued and encouraged.   Children need to see their worth, and that they do have a part to play in their family, school and community.  

Sam: I have a solid background in performing arts and travelled the world as a founding member of Black Grace Dance Company.  I have experienced so much and want to impart through dance, music and song to the kids who attend our programmes.  I've been working on LIMITLESS PERFORMANCE ACADEMY through which KOF children participate in dance, singing, musical instruments and drama.  All these performing arts will be used as a vehicle to encourage our kids to be confident and that they are indeed limitless and are all born for greatness!

Now as parents to 5 children, and Lealofi having been a solo-parent for 10 years, we both understand the demands and challenges with juggling work and childcare during the holidays, and before and after school.  We understand the questions and uneasiness that comes when leaving your children - your treasures, with others, and when it comes to childcare - initially, it usually is leaving your children to strangers.  

Kids on F.O.O.T aims at easing this situation, you will find that at Kids on f.o.o.t it is not just teenagers looking after your children, but adults who are mothers, fathers, aunties, uncles and grandparents.  We believe it is important to have younger and older staff and each add value to our programmes and provide different things for our tamariki/children and this creates are more whānau/family en

Through great role modelling from our Kids on F.O.O.T staff, whose desire is to build up the children's spirit; showing kids what is happening in their community, and allowing them to find something within to give back - we have an awesome future generation of adults in the making!

It is our hope that through providing quality child care and enveloping children with opportunities to dig out their talents and abilities, and then providing a community opportunity to use their talents, they will feel empowered individually, see and embrace their personal value and therefore give more of themselves to their families and communities.  

Our heart is to bring amazing opportunities for the kids in our communities that Kids on F.O.O.T serve.  Here's to our fabulous kids!!!
