Mount Wellington

Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to Mount Wellington Playcentre

Playcentre is unlike any other early childhood education organisation. At Playcentre, both children and their parents / caregivers attend and get the opportunity to learn and explore together in a fun and safe environment.

The curiosity and creativity of our tamariki is nurtured in a way that allows them to learn about themselves and their world.

Your child will be given a chance to explore, create, climb, read, sing, experiment, play music, wear costumes, have their face painted (or do it themselves!), garden, do carpentry with real tools, bake and cook, build sandcastles, swing, slide, dance, spend time in nature and get messy.

At Playcentre, families come together and lifelong friendships are formed. We welcome families with children aged 0 – 6 years. Mixed age play allows your children to engage with others older and younger than themselves. Pre-schoolers learn how to communicate, share and negotiate with empathy for their younger peers.

If you’re considering joining and would like to know more, please select the purple Arrange a Visit button, fill in the enquiry form and we’ll invite you along to an information evening. Once you’ve attended this session, we can book you in to come and visit with your child prior to enrolling.


We offer 3 free visits before you request to enrol
