Nau Mai Haere Mai

Papamoa Playcentre is an amazingly vibrant, busy and supportive centre in the heart of Papamoa. We are a stones throw from the golden sandy shores of Papamoa Beach and right across the road from Papamoa Primary School. 

Our members are a diverse mix of nationalities that collectively bring a huge range of talents and skills that help to run our thriving centre. Our members are actively involved in the management of the centre and enjoy taking part in the Adult Education programme.

We regularly hold Whanau orientated social events such as Matariki celebrations, Christmas celebrations, and fundraisers. 

We almost always have full rolls and a continuous stream of local visiting mums, dads and grandparents eager to become part of the special community we have created at our centre. So don’t hesitate to visit us if you are thinking about joining a Playcentre. Our doors are always open to new Whanau that are keen to be part of their child’s learning and take part in the special vibe of Papamoa Playcentre.

Email us or call us during session times to find out more information about how you and your tamariki can visit us.

We offer 3 free visits before you request to enrol
