Kia Ora and Welcome to The Playhouse Pre-School

We are privately owned, mixed age group Pre-Schools, catering for ages 0 – 6. You can find us @ 41 (opened in 2013) & @ 51 (opened in 2008) Twomey Drive, Newsham Park, Pukekohe.

Child to Teacher ratio

We are very fortunate to have excellent teams of Teachers who are consistent and competent. Our Teachers are either qualified or in training, and are passionate about working with children. We are licensed for up to 48 children per day @ The Playhouse 41 and up to 40 children per day @ The Playhouse 51.


Nurturing, safe environments welcome you into attractive open plan spaces, where play and learning zones have been carefully and creatively thought out for exploration, discovery, and to challenge children. Each centre is full of rich resources that await children’s valued play and learning. Take a look at our Photo Gallery to see more.

Opening Hours

Both Pre-Schools are open from 7.30am – 5.30pm, Monday to Friday inclusive. Our Pre-Schools provide the opportunity for children to attend the centre for full days, from as little as two days per week, or up to five days per week (full time). Children aged from 3 years and up may also choose from half days – free of charge, or school hour days (8.30 – 3.00pm – A charge is in place for this).


We have open door policies at our Pre-Schools. You are welcome to ring us at any time for information, or come in to view each centre personally. A Teacher will show you around, answer any questions, and give you written information about the centre you are interested in. Should you choose to enrol your child/children with us at either centre, you will be given an enrolment pack with all relevant information and forms for you to fill out and return to us to enrol your child/children.
