Te Puawaitanga o Atareta Playcentre (TPoA) is located in a new facility in Remuera and was opened in 2014. With a focus on valuing and affirming parents as the first and best educators of their children, we offer quality early childhood education within a multicultural community atmosphere.
At TPoA, we value child-led learning and have a richly resourced environment for your child to explore their interests. As you, or another family member or caregiver, attend sessions with your child, we work together with you to understand your child/ren’s goals and how we can best meet them during the sessions.
As a relatively new centre, we have a strong focus on adult education to enable us to deliver fantastic early childhood education as well as manage our beautiful facility. Our 2017 ERO review described TPoA as ‘well placed’ to facilitate the learning of our tamariki. Our members are supportive, friendly and fun. With a maximum 1:3 adult to child ratio, and most sessions running at 1:2, there is always someone available to help.
While situated on a quiet suburban street, we are only a stone’s throw from Remuera village and excellent bus links.
We welcome families with children from newborn to school age, at any time during the year.
We invite you to visit us and experience what Playcentre is all about.
Please contact us to arrange a time to visit. We look forward to meeting you and your family.
