Some New Options for Grants

Is your centre planning a new project.  Click here to see a list of potential funders.  If you require help please email


There are many changes taking place within the Adult Education programme. Come the end of 2017 Course 2 will no longer be offered.  Our advice has been for some time - if you are already actively working on this course, work towards completion as quick as possible.  If you need help call the office or email  We can help make completion reality.  2018 will be too late.

Course one will also look different from 2018 - more information to follow.  In the meantime please send in all C1 forms for processing as soon as possible. To simplify the content new parents can skip the Magic Places reading.  If in doubt please contact Debbie at the office or email

Fire Drills

Fire Drills should have been completed week 4 - 6-10 November.  Please send these to Kirsty -

Last Ever AGM

Please come an celebrate with us the last ever Canterbury Playcentre Association meeting as we know it.  From 2018 the new structure will kick in so after all these years of Playcentre in Canterbury we wish to celebrate. For more details click here.  Of course there will be the Ediucation graduation ceremony as well.  See you all there.

Ailsa Densem Library at CPA

When coming into the office we welcome you and your tamariki to use our library.  Please remember to clean and tidy up after.  Place any food items and rubbish in a bin and put toys and chairs back.  We use the Ailsa Densem Library for 6 weeks of  each term for our Youth Parenting Courses and also for our education programmes.

If everyone makes an effort to tidy up after themselves it would be appreciated as there is no magic fairy/magic cleaner at CPA to do it, thank you.
