Murchison Playcentre is a fully licensed Early Childhood Education Centre.
We offer sessions three mornings a week for children from birth to six years of age.

We are a nature based, loose parts inspired, totally child-led play and run by our whanau-cooperative.

Playcentre is unlike any other early childhood education organisation.  At Playcentre, both children and their parents / caregivers attend.

At Playcentre children get the opportunity to learn and explore in a fun and safe environment.

The curiosity and creativity of our tamariki is nurtured in a way that allows them to learn about themselves and their world.

Your child will be given a chance to explore, create, climb, read, sing, experiment, play music, wear costumes, have their face painted (or do it themselves!), garden, do carpentry with real tools, bake and cook, build sandcastles, swing, slide, dance, spend time in nature and get messy.

The activities change every day.  Playcentre parents all bring different skills, interests, and cultural backgrounds to add to the rich learning environment.

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.

At Playcentre, families come together and lifelong friendships are formed.

We welcome you to visit any time during the year.  You are entitled to three free visits so come and check out what we do – we would love to meet you and your family!
