Waihi Beach

Our tamariki are supported to become confident, competent self-directed learners through play based around their interests. They gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance.

Our tamariki’s curiosity and creativity is nurtured through the fun range of experiences provided … no two days at Playcentre are the same.

Our tamariki develop nurturing and social skills which have lifelong benefits. Siblings attend together, allowing tuakana-teina relationships to form where older children can mentor younger children and practise empathy and caring.

Our parental relationships developed through Playcentre provide support from parents and help them develop new parenting and life skills.

Our parents are actively involved in children’s learning and gaining new skills by working through the adult education system, a nationally recognised qualification. The high adult to child ratio allows a good balance for group and individual support during each session.

There is no other organisation for early childhood education and family development quite like it in the world. Thousands of kiwi children, and their parents too, have grown up with Playcentre … book in for your three visits today and come and join the fun.
