Thank you for your enquiry.
We would love to have you come along to your local Playcentre.
Playcentre is a parent cooperative which means that parents stay with their children. It is a wonderful way to be involved as you get to play with them, alongside them, encourage them to interact with others while you meet other parents and educators.
Playcentres operate in the morning (usually from 9am – 12pm) and are held on weekdays (which days depend on the individual Playcentre).
Playcentre is free and is subsidised by the New Zealand Ministry of Education. However, some centres do request a donation or small fee per term. On average these are $30 per term. When you visit a centre, they will advise if there is a donation request or small fee and how much it is.
Every Playcentre offers three free visits before enrolment, so come along for a visit and feel free to try out different centres in your area. You are welcome to type your address into our Find a Centre function and this will show you the closest centres to you. https://www.playcentre.org.nz/find-your-centre/
“My children have a whole village of like-minded parents who know their every like and dislike as if they were their own children, and I have beautiful friends who are like sisters and taught me hot to be a mum! I am forever grateful for my village.”
