Our Story

Our beginnings

Nearly twenty years ago our founder David found himself having some pretty eye-opening conversations with educators about their struggle to find quality and coherence from existing resource suppliers. These playground ponderings, coupled with David’s own experiences raising a young family, sparked an idea.

From there Play ‘n’ Learn was born, with humble beginnings in a double garage in the small Wellington suburb of Tawa.

Our inspiration

We are a family-owned company inspired every day by the altruistic and positive work that teachers do in caring for and educating the citizens of our future. We believe that by purposely supporting ECE centres we can help build a better tomorrow.

Our Purpose

We exist to support the early education sector to create communities of learning; where families, teachers, children and management are brought together in caring for and educating citizens of the future.
