Mapua Playcentre has been a prominent place for families in the Mapua community for over 60 years. We have a Qualified Supervisor on each session, whose experience and knowledge is invaluable, who works alongside our parents to create a diverse and enriching session.

With the Abel Tasman on our doorstep we encourage nature play on session and regularly explore the wonders of our environment with trips to Rabbit Island allowing our tamariki to become familiar with Water, Marine life, Forests and all that the natural world has to offer.

Visitors always Welcome, drop in and find out what Kiwi families have been embracing for generations. We offer a Free Term for first time families and children under two are FREE!

We offer 3 free visits before you join
