I transferred to Papatoetoe Playcentre on Guide Place last year and have found it very welcoming and a well resourced centre.
It has a very high adult to child ratio (1 adult to 3 children) and an amazing child oriented programme which incorporates all children attending interests and best of all it's all play based!
I think the most amazing aspect of all is the community and belonging aspect (whanaungatanga) as you grow and learn along side your child and make life long friendships in the process.
It's super affordable at approx $2 a week ($20 a term). You also get 3 free visits.

I've been going here for over a year now with my 2yr 7mo old daughter. I really wish I'd come sooner!! I can't believe how much she has developed in the time we've been here. When we arrived she would cry when kids were playing loudly and hide when the adults looked at her. She is now a really confident Playcentre kid who holds her own during play with other kids and has good relationships with the adults here. It's been great for me too. I've learnt so much about how to teach my daughter through play and I think I'm a much better mother for it. Best of all it is only $20 per term per child (which fits with our budget!).
