Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to Silverdale Playcentre
At Playcentre, families come together and lifelong friendships are formed. We welcome families with children aged 0 – 6 years.
Playcentre is unlike any other early childhood education organisation. At Playcentre, kaiako (teachers) are our parents and caregivers. The curiosity and creativity of our tamariki is nurtured in a way that allows them to learn about themselves and their world through child-led play. Playcentre parents all bring different skills, interests, and cultural backgrounds to add to the rich learning environment.
Sessions run at our centre on Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9.00am to 12.00noon.
On Monday our centre session runs a full reo Māori immersion session; Te Puna Reo o Whānau ki Te Weiti. Silverdale Playcentre Aotearoa have links to Te Herenga Waka o Orewa Marae.
