Welcome to the website of the Canterbury Playcentre Association.  

Playcentre is unique.

There is no other organisation for early childhood education quite like it in the world.

It suits parents who want to make a commitment to be actively involved in working, growing, learning and playing alongside their children.

We recognise the abilities, knowledge and experience you bring with you to Playcentre.

A co-operative whanau/family experience.

Canterbury Playcentre Association acknowledges Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa/New Zealand

Whanau tupu ngatahi - families growing together.
