Welcome to our Early Learning Centre
Where learning is a part of everyday play
We know first hand as parents, that choosing the best early learning centre for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make as a parent.
We also understand that the early years of a child’s life are critical for healthy development later on. At Play to Learn we believe that by working together parents and teachers can give children a great start. A great start that will help ensure their future success.
Play to Learn is a small centre with a big heart!
Our Hamilton Childcare centre is family owned and is run by experienced, passionate childcare professionals.
We believe that children learn and grow best in an environment where they feel happy and secure. Our centre philosophy is designed to enrich your child’s imagination, creativity and sense of wonder. We also nurture friendship learning and the development of social skills including respectful teacher/child relationships.

Kia Ora Whanau,
My love for early childhood education started when my first child was born.
I also believe in great partnerships with whanau. Children are your world, mean absolutely everything to you and strong relationships with everyone close to them will support them in becoming who they want to be.
We value the team spirit that we have here and when you enter our lovely centre, you will receive a family like, warm feeling from every staff member. We all have so much to offer you with all our knowledge and experience and like you, we want the best for you and your child. Over the years I have heard so many wonderful quotes, but this is my favourite “every child needs someone to be crazy about them” – so true isn’t it?
In my spare time, I love to spend it mostly with my family tending to my pretty cool husband, Isaac and our beautiful children Jurnee, Nikau and Hawaiki.
Welcome to Play to Learn and thank you for choosing us !
Ni Hao/Kia Ora,
My name is Felix and I came from China. I am dedicated to provide quality early childhood education to ngaa tamariki. I hope to combine my knowledge and culture to support all children’s learning needs and enrich their activities in carpentry and other masculine trades. As a male teacher I believe that I can provide a male influence and bring a different perspective on ngaa tamariki.
I believe that relationships are an integral aspect to nurturing the growth of our tamariki, kaiako and whaanau. Building wonderful relationships creates a bond of trust, familiarity, the confidence to take risks and to problem solve with a loving and nurturing support system. My gentle and playful nature is always radiating and at Play to Learn you will find me learning with ngaa tamariki at their level, always engrossed in play and scaffolding and supporting all tamariki equally.
In my spare time you will find me outdoors living and breathing in our nature and learning and exploring through our beautiful country. I also enjoy spending time exploring lots of cafes and enjoying lots of coffee and yummy kai too.
