Onepoto Playcentre builds confident, competent learners by valuing our children’s play and exploration.

Our tamariki are free to explore the many play opportunities. Children love to explore, create, get messy and make believe. Sand, paint, jumping, swings, dolls, cooking, carpentry, and costumes are particularly popular. Adults support children with equipment, conversations and our participation in their play. We have fun together and build lasting relationships. 

We value the many languages and cultures of our families and the many skills of our parents and children. We are all learning together. Our adults participate in the free Playcentre adult education programme. This enables us to plan and set-up different activities each session. We also make decisions together and share the responsibilities of running an early childhood centre.

Our donations are currently $45/term per family.

Please contact us if you’d like to visit. We love to meet the neighbours and make new friends.
