Located at the West end of Oxfords Main Street, Oxford Playcentre occupies a rear section with a large outdoor space full of wonder for our tamariki (children) to explore.
At Oxford Playcentre we believe that child-initiated play allows children to become confident and competent self-directed learners. Our dedication to the Playcentre philosophy means that our children are continually making and strengthening warm relationships with adults and their peers. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment where our tamariki are supported to play, explore, discover, create, and grow.
Our family co-operative
Our pakeke (adult) and whānau (family) are actively involved with the running of our centre and our sessions. Pakeke are supported on their Playcentre journey as they grow their knowledge of early childhood education through the Playcentre Adult Education programme, which enables us to run high quality sessions and support our qualified ECE co-ordinators at our centre.
At Oxford Playcentre you are not just a parent, you are an educator to all of the children. Every pakeke holds a role within the centre ensuring we all contribute to the success of our tamariki’s education.
