At Parklands Playcentre we believe in creating a supportive, nurturing community by playing, working and learning together, respectfully caring for each other so that every child and adult is empowered to reach their full potential.

We believe in the importance of play and creativity where tamariki follow their own interests and choose their activities, supported by parents and whanau who know them well and understand them.

Siblings attend together with opportunities for our older children to mentor the younger ones  developing nurturing and social skills with lifelong benefits.

Playcentre is for adults too.  The support and friendships go well beyond the Playcentre gates;  thousands of Kiwi children and their parents have grown up with Playcentre.
