Coatesville Playcentre is a licensed early childhood education provider run entirely by parents/nga matua, who have come together to provide pre-school experiences for their children. We cater for children from 0-6 years of age. Our Playcentre has been running for more than 30 years and we operate according to the Playcentre philosophy. We are part of the North Shore Playcentre Association.
Our Playcentre is less than 10 minutes from Albany and we have families/whanau from Coatesville, Riverhead, Dairy Flat, Albany and Paremoremo districts. We aim to hold 5 sessions per week, Monday to Friday, 9.15am – 11.45am and run a very successful additional session for our bigger kids, aged 4 years and over. We have a good relationship with the teaching staff at the local school who advise on how we can best prepare our children for the transition to school.
