Discover the magic of Playcentre at Otumoetai Playcentre, a friendly family-focussed early childhood education centre based at 75 Windsor Road, next to Otumoetai Aquatic Centre and Otumoetai Tennis Club.

At Playcentre our children gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance provided by their parents, or other family members/caregivers, who stay on session with their children. Curiosity, creativity and learning are nurtured through the wide range of experiences provided in a quality environment, supported by parents and whanau as children’s first and best educators. We believe play is the best way for our tamariki to gain the social and emotional skills to set them up for success in future life.

We have a well-resourced centre with a large outdoor area. We welcome children from birth to 6 years and also offer the Space programme (Space for you and your baby) for new parents and parents with new babies.

It’s not just the children who benefit from coming to Otumoetai Playcentre – our adult members value the friendships and support networks built here too. For many families our centre becomes a second home. We also offer opportunities for adult personal development and learning, including Playcentre’s free education programme, which helps us to understand children’s development, interactions and need to play.

Please feel free to drop in for a visit (the first 3 sessions are free) or email our centre to have a chat about coming in.

Remember to bring morning tea and a change of clothes for your little ones, for when they discover the joys of paint and water play at Playcentre!

We are a peanut-free and plastic-wrap-free centre.
