Balclutha Playcentre's philosophy is based on child-initiated play and recognises the parents as the first and best educators of their own children. Playcentre families receive a unique early childhood experience with opportunities for whānau/families to learn together.
Playcentre offers a programme of education for whānau/parents that emphasises parenting and early childhood education including learning in child development, play and learning, parenting skills, planning and delivering early childhood education, facilitation and management skills.
Unique within the early childhood sector, Playcentres are cooperatively managed by parents with support fron Playcentre Aotearoa.
