Stoke Playcentre

Stoke Playcentre, based in Nelson, has been granted $2,170 by the Mazda Foundation to create a Pasifika themed sandpit including a palm tree cover to provide the children with protection from the elements during playtime.

The centre’s focus is on learning through play and encourages child initiated play with the belief that it provides older children with the opportunity to model positive qualities to their younger members.

The centre has already completed extensive fundraising to build a big swing in their play area and need the sandpit to finish off their outdoor play environment.
