About Us

The Playcentre shop has been supplying quality, educational resources for over 70 years. During this time the Shop has been managed by generations of Playcentre parents with a focus on providing the tools to allow children to learn and build confidence as they play.

Whether you are an Early Learning Centre, a school, parent or grandparent, the Playcentre Shop can help you build a safe and challenging play environment where children can explore, experiment and imagine.

As The Shop has always supplied Playcentres, we cover all of the areas of play found at Early Learning Centres. From working carpentry tools and benches to science, collage or music, we have the range to meet your needs.

The team in the shop are always happy to answer any questions you may have and to offer recommendations to ensure an item will suit your particular requirements.

The Playcentre Shop is part of the wider Playcentre Aotearoa network and is committed to supporting parents as first teachers.
