Welcome to Maungawhau Playcentre

Why Maungawhau Playcentre

Maungawhau Playcentre is more than just an excellent Early Childhood Education centre. We are a supportive community of families located in Mt Eden, Auckland.

As parent educators we work together to recognise, support and extend our children’s learning and development. All parents are provided with free NZQA based education and we use Te Whariki the New Zealand early childhood curriculum.

Our Children’s curiosity and creativity is nurtured through the fun range of experiences provided … no two days at Playcentre are the same.

There is no other organisation for early childhood education and family development quite like it in the world. Thousands of kiwi children, and their parents too, have grown up with Playcentre … book in for your three visits today and come and join the fun.

Birth to Six

We support our children’s learning and development by having adult to child ratios of not more than 1:3.

Child Led

We believe in child led play and parents and caregivers being the best and first educators of their children.

Adult Education

Playcentre offers a unique opportunity to gain skills in communication, parenting skills, planning and development.
