About Us

Helping Hands Network is part of the Junior Adventures Group, a collective that delivers exceptional experiences for children in over 1,000 services at school locations across Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland. Our global experience has allowed us to create an approach to child-led care that parents and schools trust. And that children love!

At Helping Hands Network, we design programs that are fun and stimulating, helping kids reach their full potential. This development focuses on their personal growth, self-esteem, and respect for others. We don’t just accommodate the interests of each child – we celebrate them! We deliver a variety of activities like sport, music, art classes, and more. We encourage every single kids to get involved in what they’re passionate about.

Our Adventures

  • We have fun!

    Our highly-skilled teams design exciting experiences that inspire our children and ensure no two days are ever the same. All activities are inclusive and appropriate to each age, skill level and early years foundation stage – as well as appealing to a wide range of interests – so children feel comfortable and enjoy a sense of belonging. Our programmes also have a long-term benefit, developing the social, emotional and interpersonal skills that children will need as they go through life.

    Our activities are split into seven exciting adventure categories:

  • Brain Boosters
