At Glendene Playcentre we believe in empowering parents as first teachers and making the most of the time that we spend with our tamariki in their younger years. We empower our tamariki to initiate play and direct their own learning, through a variety of play areas encompassing physically active, sand and water play, fantasy and family imaginative play, carpentry, clay, paint, playdough and collage, messy play and…. the list goes on!

We have large grounds for our children to explore (including a punga hut), and amazing climbing frames to physically challenge them. We back onto Patts Reserve and have plenty of parking. Our children particularly love messy play and we have our very own mud pit.

We go on at least 4 excursions per term and these have included; Butterfly Creek, the Maritime Museum, Massey Leisure Centre, train trips, visits to West Auckland playgrounds and beaches, a visit up the Sky Tower.

Our members are friendly and fun. We support each other in our roles and work together to ensure our centre is always dynamic and meeting the needs of our whanau/families. If you attend two mixed age sessions per week you are also entitled to a ‘drop-off session’ for your child 2 1/2 years or older.

We are licensed for up to 30 children ages 0-6 years and run general sessions on Mondays to Friday from 9.15am to 12.30pm. Thursday am is a Space Session not a general session. 

Ring us to book a time to visit us. We offer you three free visits and would love to meet you and your whānau.

Above all, at Glendene Playcentre we are about learning and having fun together.

We offer 3 free visits before you request to enrol
