Red Beach

Welcome to the Red Beach Playcentre page! We are a relaxed, friendly, multi-cultural early childhood education centre where you and your children learn through play. We respect and hold highly the importance of parents as first educators and this is reflected in our sessions which are run by and involve all attending parents and whānau.

One of the life-long benefits of being involved with your children at pre school level is discovering and enjoying your child’s strengths and interests. Explore your child’s world by joining in with them in their water, painting, playdough, craft, building, and sandpit play, along with all the many other activities that we offer.

From the 2017 Education Review Office report: “Warm and respectful relationships between families contribute to the strong sense of community evident in the centre. … Children have a strong sense of belonging and a very positive attitude to learning. “

We provide a complete early childhood education for our children from birth to school age. Here are some of Playcentre‘s key points of difference:

  • Families learning together, 
  • Adult education programmes, 
  • Child initiated play, 
  • Co-operative, 
  • We are unique! 
  • And most importantly, Playcentre is FUN!

Playcentre families become friends for life. We work as a team, and value everyone’s input. We also go on plenty of trips together as a centre, where we all have the opportunity to experience new and interesting places and activities. We follow the same school term and holidays as Primary Schools. We invite you to 3 free visits with your child to experience play the Playcentre way, to see if this is right for you and your family. Just give us a call during session hours!

We offer 3 free visits before you request to enrol
