pk playgroups

Play group offers the children a chance to come together and socialise, foster friendships with each other and with the other educators. Parents are also invited to join us, this builds relationships with the children's whānau.

We explore learning through hands on child initiated activities by extending on the interests the children have been showing within their educators homes.

We foster and support children's learning through activities such as art, cooking and outdoor challenges.  We also support the children's learning by incorporating community groups to facilitate programmes within our play group such as the active Mokopuna programme facilitated and delivered through Sports Gisborne, oral health, Emergency services, to name but a few.

On enrolment we encourage you to visit our Educators page to view some of our current educators. To find out more about all of our available educators, you can contact our co-ordinators who will provide you with the educators profiles and any further information you may require. The next step is arranging a visit. Our co-ordinators can assist you in this process. You are welcome to visit with a co-ordinator or alone.

When you have found an educator we are able to provide assistance with settling your child into their new care environment.
