About our workshop

Where we design and build, by hand, beautiful early childhood education and childcare items

Custom design and build

Our purpose-built Workshop is located on beautiful farm land in Ōhāriu Valley, Wellington. This is where ideas become reality with custom design-and-build furnishings and playgrounds for early childhood centres all over Aotearoa/NZ.

In consultation with our centre managers, teachers and children, the workshop team maintain and develop the indoor and outdoor environments at the Childspace centres.

Natural and renewable

At the workshop we endeavour to use natural and renewable materials wherever possible, such as plantation-grown plywood, bamboo, driftwood, rocks and shells.

We have all the essential ingredients: a design office, massive workshop space, paint room, and a dedicated team of extremely talented (and handsome) workshop boys.

Our designs are always functional and we pride ourselves on thinking ‘outside the square.’ All this to get the best solution for child spaces everywhere!
