Welcome to our Centre

Ready Steady Play provides a ‘home away from home’ in a nurturing environment, with a spacious outdoor play area and backing on to the beautiful Clare Park, with plenty of real, natural grass. Located in Burwood, nearby natural reserves and parks, Ready Steady Play offers excellent care & education for local families in the community.

Ready Steady Play philosophy and practices are based on current research on the topics of teaching, learning, and child development; it is strongly inspired by the RIE Educaring Approach, based on respect and trust for the child.

Our centre is open from 7am to 6pm and caters for children aged 0-6yrs, holding a license for a maximum of 65 children. Your child will love our well laid out centre, with four separate rooms, perfectly catering to each unique stage of your child’s development. This ensures that your child receives meaningful care, as well as personalised learning and development, tailored specifically to their needs, providing equal opportunities to ensure your child gets the best start in life.

Parents love the rich sense of community, and our curriculum at Ready Steady Play reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. It values input from parents, educators, whānau, children and our wonderful community.

"Both of my children went to Ready Steady Play Preschool. The staff have always been very warm, welcoming, and friendly. They made me feel at ease and my children learnt so much and bonded well with their peers and educators. I would highly recommended this great preschool to friends and family. We miss this place very much. Thank you for looking after my children so well."

"True, caring, genuine staff, so vibrant & welcoming! 2 of my 3 kids attended here when we moved to the area. I had viewed a couple others & this one was the only one where I really had no doubts. Beautiful people, beautiful kids."
