A four-year-old boy has died while playing at a daycare centre in Takapuna, on Auckland's North Shore.

The boy died following what appears to be a tragic accident on playground equipment, says Detective Sergeant Ross Clapp.

Emergency services were called just before 2pm on Friday.

Police are working to establish exactly what happened and WorkSafe New Zealand has been advised.

The boy's family is being supported by police and victim support.

It is believed the accident happened at Angels Childcare Centre in Takapuna, which is a privately owned provider.
