Morningside Playcentre

Our children are supported to become confident, competent self-directed learners through play based around their interests. Our children gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance.

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

Our children develop nurturing and social skills which have lifelong benefits. Siblings attend together, allowing older children to mentor younger children and practise empathy and caring.

Our parental relationships developed through Playcentre provide support from parents and help them develop new parenting and life skills.

Our parents are actively involved in providing our children’s learning programmes. The high adult to child ratio allows a good balance for group and individual support during each session.

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.

Our Programme

Our focus is on providing excellent childcare with the best educational resources, experienced teachers and a beautiful environment to challenge and stimulate your child. We believe children learn through play, by being emersed in an environment which is rich in opportunities for learning, experimenting and making discoveries.

As teachers we have a role of facilitator, guide and supporter. We believe it is our role to empower children, to foster their efforts and celebrate their contributions.

By giving children responsibility for their own work, and supporting their efforts along the way, we are building children’s self esteem, confidence and belief in their abilities.

At Sunbeams Kindergarten we are guided by the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whariki.

Through a process of assessment, planning and evaluation and information sharing with parents and whanau, we are able to implement a collaborative learning programme that is in depth and relevant.

Our programme is specially designed for 2 to 6 year olds and caters for their different stages of development.

We provide a stimulating, challenging, well resourced environment for learning in all areas of the curriculum.
