West Harbour Playcentre is located in West Auckland and has been running play sessions since 1984. We boast a newly renovated centre with a spacious outside playground area.
We currently run three mixed-aged sessions (0 – 6 year olds) a week where parents/caregivers stay on session with their tamariki.
We also host SPACE sessions for babies which are run out of our centre on Thursdays – see www.space.org.nz for further information. Many of our members and tamariki are ex SPACE cadets!
As a centre we want our children to feel empowered to play, learn and grow in a safe family-supported environment where we celebrate uniqueness and diversity.
Our emergent child-led curriculum values children as already competent learners and supports them in recognising and appreciating their own ability to learn. Our free-play, mixed-age sessions encourage children to develop a range of strategies and skills to play and learn with others.
Children are actively supported by parents and whanau, and this means that children have a secure base from which to explore as they become more confident and more independent.
New members are always welcome! We offer three free visits – come and check us out!
