Dinsdale Playcentre is a quality early childhood centre set in a quiet urban cul-de-sac in west Hamilton. We are close to the centre of town and draw on many neighbouring suburbs. Our well-resourced centre is at the end of the street, bordering a gully.

Parents all share in the running of our centre and our sessions focus on Playcentre Philosophy with child-led activities, high adult to child ratios, and 16 plus areas of play in a fun supportive environment.

We believe parents and whanau are the first and most important educators of our children and children learn best by doing what they love- playing!

Dinsdale Playcentre received the highest rating possible in our last ERO review – “very well placed” to promote positive learning outcomes for children.

We welcome families to visit with their preschool children- birth to school age and check out what we do.

‘Come for a coffee, come for a play! No need to book, just turn up on the day! Pack some healthy snacks, a drink of water, sunhat & a change of clothes for your tamariki as there is a lot to do. We look forward to seeing you! ‘
