Makarewa Playcentre is located at 63 Flora Road East, Makarewa. We boast a large indoor and outdoor space for children to enjoy many different play experiences. We are a parent run centre and are passionate about our children and their early learning.

Playcentre is for children 0-6 years old and follows the Early childhood curriculum – Te Whariki. We are a recognised ECE with the Ministry of Education and part of the NZ Playcentre Federation.

We are open three mornings a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) with a paid educator two mornings a week. Our sessions include many different activities ranging from baking, music sessions and sandpit play to blueberry picking, beach trips and exploring our community.

At Playcentre, children have the freedom to explore their natural world and become confident and competent learners. Playcentre offers everything children need to get ready for school years.

We offer 3 free visits to any family looking at joining our centre. We are an approved ECE with WINZ which means many families enjoy having their fees fully paid for.

We offer 3 free visits before you request to enrol
