The Auckland Malayali community have reached out to the family of the four-year-old boy who died while playing at his daycare centre on Auckland's North Shore.

Police say the boy died in an "accident on playground equipment" at Angels Childcare Centre on Anzac Street in Takapuna on Friday.

The boy's parents are members of the Auckland Malayali Samajam Incorporated, a charity celebrating the South Indian ethnic group's culture, and on its Facebook page there is a tribute with a photo of the boy.

Members from the organisation visited the family's home on Friday evening to provide support.

The childcare centre is privately owned and operated.

WorkSafe has been made aware of the incident.

The Early Childhood Council says it's shocked and deeply saddened at the death.
