Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to Motueka Playcentre. We welcome families with children aged 0 – 6 years. Mixed age play allows your children to engage with others older and younger than themselves. Pre-schoolers learn how to communicate, share and negotiate with empathy for their younger peers.
Our children are supported to become confident, competent self-directed learners through play based around their interests. Our children gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance.
Our Children’s curiosity and creativity is nurtured through the fun range of experiences provided… no two days at Playcentre are the same.
Our children develop nurturing and social skills which have lifelong benefits. Siblings attend together, allowing older children to mentor younger children and practice empathy and caring.
Our parental relationships developed through Playcentre provide support from parents and help them develop new parenting and life skills.
Our parents are actively involved in providing our children’s learning programmes. The high adult to child ratio allows a good balance for group and individual support during each session.
