At Hukerenui Playcentre it’s quite normal for the kids, and adults, to turn up in gumboots, we’re a rural community, and our love for outdoor play reflects this. It’s an easy-going, friendly environment, where we love to get messy, creative, and adventurous.

Based at the Hukerenui School there are plenty of opportunities to mix with the school at their many events.  This includes our transition to school program, where on Friday’s our 4 year old’s spend the morning with the new entrant class.  

In November 2018 we celebrated the opening of our new Playcentre building which has been designed for purpose in a new outdoor setting, next to a paddock of lambs!

Please come and visit us, we would love to meet you and show you our community.
