Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to Ōpoho Playcentre. Playcentre is unique.

At Ōpoho Playcentre, both children and their whānau attend. Children get the opportunity to learn and explore in a fun and safe environment. The curiosity and creativity of our tamariki are nurtured in a way that allows them to learn about themselves and their world through play. 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 if they want to. The activities change every day.

We value and affirm parents and whānau as the first and best educators of their children. 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 those older and younger than themselves. Pre-schoolers learn how to communicate, share and negotiate with empathy for their younger peers. Older children, from 2.5 years and once happy with Ōpoho Playcentre routines, can be dropped off.

At Ōpoho Playcentre, parents, children, and whānau learn together, forming lifelong friendships. We invite you to come learn, laugh, play and grow with us. You get three free visits. You’re welcome anytime during the year.

Children under 1 year old attend for free. We are conveniently located away from the road down a driveway, surrounded by native bush. We’d love to meet you and your family!
