Playcentre, we invest in our children.
If you are looking for something new to do with your baby or young child this year, then come along to Playcentre and find out what it is that keeps people returning for more each year.
The real strength of Playcentre is that it acknowledges and supports parents as the first and most important educators of their children. Playcentres are co-operatively managed and supervised by parents with support from experienced Association and Federation personnel. They deliver the national early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki, and are partially funded by the Ministry of Education.
Emma Hordyk, Media Officer for the New Zealand Playcentre Federation says, "It really is a wonderful place for all members of the family to build life-time friendship and along with the parental support, the skills you learn from the free training can lead you on to many job opportunities"
Parents do a great job of educating their children and themselves and get a great deal of fun out of being at Playcentre, learning and growing together. Come and explore your child's world by visiting one of nearly 500 Playcentre's nationwide and join your children playing and exploring in the water, painting, playdough, craft, building and sand pit play, along with the various other activities that all Playcentres offer.
