About Us

Located on:

17 Buchan Street


We specialise in providing high-quality equipment and educational resources for all areas of play and development for young children. We choose our products carefully ensuring that our products are safe, reliable, appropriate and open-ended (able to be used in different ways). We offer competitive prices and personalised expert service. Our regular customers include parents, early childhood centres, playgroups, schools and others.

The Playcentre Shop in Christchurch has operated in some form for nearly sixty years and is part of the national Playcentre network (visit www.playcentre.org.nz). You can rely on our depth of knowledge and experience! We aim to support you to provide safe and challenging play environments where children can explore, experiment and imagine.
