For more than 50 years Totaravale Playcentre has been supporting families to play, learn, and grow together. We are a fun and welcoming multicultural centre that values learning through play, curiosity, exploration, and building relationships. We welcome parents and caregivers of tamariki from birth to school age and have a wide range of resources to cater to different ages and interests.
We value and affirm parents as the best and first educators of children, providing quality early childhood education within a community setting. Your tamariki will get the opportunity to learn and explore in a safe environment with a high adult-to-child ratio, all while having fun and playing! You can check out our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what we get up to on our session.
We are open for standard sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Thursdays we have a special bilingual session called Te Kakano, which has a focus on using Te Reo Māori. All levels of Te Reo are welcome to attend this session, and it is open to members from any Playcentre! Our centre is also used for SPACE classes on Tuesdays.
Totaravale Playcentre will become your second home, and you will find that we soon become part of your village. And, like some of our current members, you’ll wonder why you didn’t join Playcentre sooner! Contact us to arrange a free visit so you can come and see everything that our Playcentre has to offer you. We can’t wait to meet you!
