At Ellerslie Playcentre, our children are supported to become confident, competent self-directed learners through play based around their interests. Our children gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance.
Our Children’s curiosity and creativity is nurtured through the fun range of experiences provided. Exploration, messy play, imagination and creativity underpin each of our sessions.… no two days at Playcentre are the same.
Our children develop nurturing and social skills which have lifelong benefits. Siblings attend together, allowing older children to mentor younger children and practise empathy and caring.
Our parental relationships developed through Playcentre provide support from parents and help them develop new parenting and life skills. We also regularly hold social events for parents as well as our Whanau, often these are extended to our past members too. At Ellerslie Playcentre we also have a maternity policy to support our Mothers with the new editions to their families that sees us provide meals and other support.
Our parents are actively involved in providing our children’s learning programmes. The high adult to child ratio allows a good balance for group and individual support during each session.
There is no other organisation for early childhood education and family development quite like it in the world. Thousands of kiwi children, and their parents too, have grown up with Playcentre.
We welcome children from birth up to 6 years of age/school. We are open Monday to Friday 9am – 12pm and have a big kids drop off session ‘Shooting Stars’ specifically designed for our tamariki aged three years and over on a Thursday 9am – 1pm
We’d love to meet you. Please email us to book in for your three free visits today and come and join the fun.
