Early childhood education centre in Burwood Christchurch

Ready Steady Play is an early childhood education centre in Burwood, Christchurch. Firmly established since 2000, we are dedicated to providing top quality care for families in our community, offering a playful and nurturing environment to children in our centre. In 2004, the preschool was extended to include four separate areas.  This makes our centre unique among childcare providers, enabling us to provide environments that initiate experiences significant to different ages and stages of your child’s development.

Our vision – a home away from home

Where children always want to be and are creating memories as they learn through play – this will lead them on a pathway of lifelong success.
