A National government task force proposes to cut almost 70% of the funding given to parent-led early childhood services such as Playcentre and Kohanga Reo. This is not OK.

The New Zealand Playcentre Federation and all of the Playcentres around the country will be hosting a "play in", just like at a real Playcentre session, but in the public and everyone is welcome to join in and celebrate the Playcentre culture!

Playcentre has been running for 70 years, and is an important institution which was designed in New Zealand, and has been picked up overseas due to its success, and community-building dynamic.

Help us save this integral part of New Zealand's culture, bring yourself and your kids along!

We are also encouraging that on the 8 August people that want to show their support for playcentre to wear a purple flower, real, fake or one your children have made.

(Please remember this will be run like a playcentre session, so please come along to support and have fun).
