Playcentre Awareness Week 6th – 12th March 2016

Play builds great communities for 75 Years!

From the 6th – 12th of March Playcentres all around New Zealand will be celebrating 75 years since the first Playcentre opened, with a week of fun activities and events for everyone to attend. Connecting children, families and their communities is something Playcentres’ have been doing since 1941, and this week is an opportunity to celebrate and focus on that connection.

“As part of the National Playcentre Awareness Week Takarunga Playcentre is holding an exciting, Free open day on March 13th, with activities and fun for under 6 year olds and their parents. “We will have lots of messy play activities for the tamariki, face-painting and yummy afternoon tea for everyone” said Takarunga Playcentre's Co-President, Sarah Albrecht.

Playcentre Awareness Week is celebrated in March each year to promote the value of parent-led early education for children. At Playcentre children are given the opportunity to explore their environment and choose their own activities, with their parent or caregiver. “The magic that happens at Playcentre is that not only are the children having a great time and learning through their play,” said NZ Playcentre Federation Co-President, Viv Butcher, “but parents are also learning – about their child, about parenting, and finding a supportive community and new friendships”.

This support and friendship was the reason behind the establishment of the first Playcentres during World War 2, to bring mothers together when their husbands were away at war. The concept was so popular it expanded throughout New Zealand and now there are over 460 licensed Playcentres nationwide, catering for children from birth to school entry.

Takarunga Playcentre is located in the heart of the beautiful, historic village Devonport, right by the sea with beautiful views on Auckland Harbour. It is run by families for families and offer free adult education, quality and affordable childcare, child-initiated play, an amazing outdoor space, lots of messy play, sandpit/water activities, arts and crafts and much more.

“Playcentre has been a fantastic place for me and my children” said Ms McGhie, “and we can't wait to share it with new families”
The Family Fun Day is a perfect opportunity to experience what Takarunga Playcentre has on offer and a great event for the whole family and especially for under 6'. The Playcentre will be open from 2pm – 4pm on March 13th at 1/26 Kerr Street, and people are welcome to show up during that time – don't forget to wear old clothes in case you get a bit messy.
