Supporting families to experience our community and meet one another is an important part of what we do at Takapuna North Community Trust. We organise a range of inclusive fun events for children of different ages throughout the year and also partner with other local groups and schools. Get in touch if you think that there is a way we could help you or check out some of our options below and come and join us at an event near you.

Preschool Play

We run a programme of free Summer Fun Preschool Play on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in our local parks and reserves during Summer and at various indoor venues over Winter. We bring a van packed full of toys to these spaces for children and their caregivers to play with; be active and make new friends. No booking is required for these sessions, just turn up. Caregiver supervision is required at all times. You can find out more information on our preschool play Facebook page here.

Our Winter Fun programme runs from May to September at a variety of indoor venues. There is no need to book for these sessions, just turn up. DOWNLOAD A TIMETABLE

The Winter Fun programme includes inter-generational play dates at Lady Allum Retirement Village in Milford and at Forrest Hill Rest home. These play dates are incredibly popular with local families and spaces are limited. If you would like to attend on of our inter-generational play dates, please check the timetable for dates and email to book your place.

Family Fun Fridays

Family Fun Fridays is a free programme for primary aged children. Join us on Fridays over Winter starting 26 July, from 3.30pm-5.30pm at the Mary Thomas Centre in Takapuna. Children can play with our imagination play equipment or join in with an art activity. Caregiver supervision is required at all times.

Family Fun Fridays continue at our local parks and reserves over the Summer months.
