Welcome to Playcentre in Canterbury

We offer high quality, research-based whānau-led early childhood education programmes in Christchurch, Selwyn, Waimakariri and Hurunui.

At Playcentre you will find other parents, grandparents, caregivers playing and learning together alongside their tamariki. Everyone brings their own set of experiences, knowledge and talents to Playcentre and together we make an unstoppable creative co-operative force offering rich play and learning experiences for our tamariki, supporting each other and growing stronger communities. There is no other organisation for early childhood education quite like it in the world.

Whānau tupu ngātahi - families growing together.
