Playcentre Awareness Week 2019

Playcentre Awareness Week             4 – 10 March 2019

What is Playcentre Awareness Week?

Playcentre Awareness Week (4 – 10 March 2019) is an opportunity for you to come and visit your local Playcentre and see what it is all about.

Are there events on?

During Playcentre Awareness Week centres around the country throw open their doors so anybody who wants to visit and experience playcentre can.

Some centres will be having special events.

If you cannot make a visit during Playcentre Awareness Week, feel welcome to visit any time. New members are always welcome.

With over 420 centres throughout Aotearoa there is one near you.

Playcentre nurtures a child’s learning, imagination, and growth.

It not only gives your child a chance to grow, but you a chance to grow with your child.

Where an adult only sees playdough, a child may see a sculpture.

Where an adult only sees a seedling, a child may see the wonder of growing things.

Where an adult only sees disused tools a child may see a chance to create and construct.

Where a child sees a massive roading project an adult may only see lines in the sand.

Playcentre is for everyone

Mums, dads, and all whānau including grandparents, aunties and uncles, and other caregivers are welcome to attend Playcentre with their children.

This means our children develop supportive relationships with a range of adults. It also adds to the diversity of experiences available as each new adult brings new things to Playcentre!

Why Playcentre?

It’s our village. Lifelong friendships and support for our whole family. Endless fun and learning opportunities for all of us.

Really great quality education for your little ones. And a supportive network for your whānau that is so much greater than you can anticipate at the beginning.

It’s a community of support, friendship and learning for children and adults.
