Halcombe Playcentre is a small centre set in the main village of a rural, farming community. Within close proximity to Halcombe School.

At Halcombe playcentre we offer endless opportunities for children to explore, create, jump, run, get messy and grow. A focus on child-led learning means that each session we offer a variety of learning and play experiences for the child to choose from, that support them to become confident, competent self-directed learners through play.

On our two weekly sessions we cater for a mixed age group of children 0-6 years.

Halcombe Playcentre also offers a supportive and friendly community for adults; an opportunity to develop new skills and access to a free NZQA early childhood education programme.

We would love for you to pop in for a coffee and play, to show you around our Centre and get to know you and your family.

We offer 3 free visits for all ages, and there is no fee’s for children under 1 year.

We recommend bringing along a spare change of clothes so your child/ children can participate fully in any messy play.

We offer 3 free visits before you request to enrol
