We are a rural Playcentre running two mixed-age morning sessions and one afternoon session a week. Sessions are planned, organised and run by parent volunteers.
We follow a free-play philosophy where children are able to choose their own activities and direct their own learning, with support as required, from adults who genuinely care about them and are enthusiastic about helping children extend their play. We aim to provide learning experiences that will arouse children’s natural curiosity, encouraging them to develop their own working theories of the world around them.
We believe that parents are the first and best teachers of their children. Whanaungatanga and manaakitanga are integral parts of our philosophy – we welcome all families who would like to join us, and together we are a proud and supportive Playcentre family.
