Play group

  • Children and their families are welcome to join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays anytime from 9:30 to 1pm for our Playgroup mornings. No large school groups are booked for these mornings.
  • Enrolment forms at the front desk.
  • Regular weekly attendance required
  • Cost: only $5 per child, adult free. Ministry of Education subsidises your child with $1.51 per child.
  • We engage in a range of open-ended, play-based activities mostly linked to science, technology, engineering, arts and crafts, and maths (STEAM) activities.

We encourage all children to engage in age and stage appropriate individual chemistry experiments and terminology every session. We enjoy music and movement, arts and crafts and joyful chats with like minded adults. We usually all come together for Morning tea or lunch and have lively discussions in the kai room.
