The Playhouse Pre-School

The Playhouse Pre-School is a privately owned child care, in two purpose-built centres situated at 41 & 51 Twomey Drive, in the Newsham Park subdivision, Pukekohe. The Playhouse Pre-Schools are attractive, well designed open plan environments, which maximize space and provide a welcoming, nurturing, flexible and stimulating environment for children, families and teachers.

An attraction for parents is the diversity of ages, enabling flexibility for siblings to attend the same centre.

The Playhouse Pre-School provides high-quality education and care, low child/teacher ratios, qualified experienced teachers and teachers in training within a nurturing safe environment for children from zero to five years of age.

The centre is divided into spaces. One designed for free movement and floor time for infants and toddlers under two years of age. This space enables them to have some time away from older children to explore age-appropriate activities before coming together as a bigger group. For the mornings, the second space is for children from two to five years of age where they have specific activities and resources designed for their ages. The afternoon brings all children together (like a family) where they are encouraged to mix and explore in all spaces. The third space is our outdoor area which provides a safe, stimulating, natural environment, enhanced with murals, a carving and mosaics, in which children are encouraged to freely explore and play. Our meal times are very special and social as the whole centre comes together (like a family) to sit, eat and talk with their friends about their day at The Playhouse Pre-School.
