Playground & Kapa Haka Uniforms

Please contact CTOS on 0800 500 185 in the planning stage of your playground project so that we can discuss the way we fund playgrounds and the likely contribution we would make.

School Playgrounds

Schools are eligible to apply to CTOS once every five years for assistance towards playground projects.

CTOS has a formula for playground funding which takes into consideration factors such as:

  • Roll number;
  • Decile rating;
  • Contribution of the school/Board of Trustees/PTA; and
  • Access of playground to the wider community.

The following ECE services are eligible to apply for playground funding:

  • Licensed, license exempt and/or chartered, community based (not for profit) early childhood services which include:
    • Playcentres;
    • Te Kōhanga Reo;
    • Ngā Puna Kohungahunga;
    • Pacific Island Centres; and
    • Kindergartens.
    • Playgroups will be considered on a case by case basis with the Trust generally only funding those operating in community venues.
