Our Programmes

















At Play Time we provide personal attention to each child.  Your child will be warmly welcomed every day.  We'll ensure they find their niche and thrive in our safe, friendly and stimulating environment, and they will be given the opportunity to do what children love to do:


MAKE, CREATE, PLAY and  discover  !   


We are owner-managed, ensuring the highest standards.


Our Before/After School Care and Holiday Programmes are approved by the Ministry of Social Development and Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki (formerly Child, Youth and Family).   The WINZ OSCAR subsidy is available for eligible families.

Daily After School Care

An Enrichment Activity (shown on the weekly planner) is offered each day, giving children the opportunity to do what children love to do: that is, to MAKE,  CREATE,   PLAY and  DISCOVER

  • Theatre Sports Fun - roleplay, singing and dancing fun! -

  • Kitchen Fun – always a popular activity, while offering heaps of hidden learning outcomes

  • Games and Physical Activity – for those who need a more active time after their school day, while enhancing social and physical skills

  • Art and Craft – for those who want a more creative afternoon; it is also a social environment with several children around the craft table

  • Discovery Fun – science-based activities to dazzle the enquiring mind roleplaying fun!


We believe all children are unique, and therefore we encourage but do not pressure children to participate in the structured enrichment activity – there will always be a variety of activities on offer every day to ensure they are engaged.  

We maintain a fair and safe environment, where sharing and taking turns fosters a happy culture. 

Academic Enrichment

Our programme incorporates time for children to play and time to focus. We have a scheduled home-work session where children are encouraged to seek help if required. This session is timed to be after the children have had a chance to get involved in activities after their school day and have had a late afternoon snack.

School Holiday Programme

Play Time Holiday Programmes are action packed full of fun activities, games, arts and crafts to keep your children entertained!  They will find something they’ll enjoy every day! 

Drop us a line if you have any questions

We maintain a fair and safe environment, where sharing and taking turns fosters a happy culture.
