We sell a wide range of quality pre-school educational toys and equipment: art supplies, puzzles, games, vehicles, dolls, tea sets, carpentry tools, dress-ups, sand and water toys, just to name a few. The Playcentre Shop endeavours to supply centres with the resources needed at a centre and also supply the full range of Playcentre publications.  Large items of furniture or equipment may be ordered.  The Playcentre Shop personnel are available to give excellent advice on purchases.  The shop personnel are constantly seeking new sources of supply, and welcome any feedback or information about manufacturers of suitable equipment.
