About Us

At Rainbow Kids, we provide a professional learning community where our tāmariki, Kaiako and whānau feel a strong attachment to our home away from home. This is guided by respectful teaching and learning practices, where we build trusting and responsive relationships in a safe environment, filled with aroha.

We believe tāmariki learn through exploration. Our Kaiako encourage child led learning and emphasise that play is a valued learning opportunity. 

Opening hours; Monday – Friday 7am – 6pm, Closed Saturday and Sunday. We are also closed on all public holidays and have shortened hours two weeks over the Christmas period

EXPERIENCED TEACHERS

Rainbow Kids has a knowledgeable, nurturing teaching team with over 80% of our staff fully qualified early childhood educators. Our teachers are experienced and passionate educators who specialize in providing the best education and care for every child.

INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

Your child’s teachers will discuss their individual needs with you before they start and ask you to fill out our ‘Individual routine and All About Me’ forms. This will help the teachers to learn about your child’s routines and support their transition into the centre.

NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

We are extremely proud of our mostly natural surroundings here at Rainbow Kids. We have a very spacious outdoor area and grounds with pin oak trees, vegetable gardens and fruit trees.

FULL MEALS PROVIDED

At Rainbow Kids we have a full-time experienced cook who creates delicious, healthy meals and snacks for our children. We provide morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack for all children. Please speak with the cook or your teachers about any food allergies your child may have.

SETTLING INTO RAINBOW KIDS

We believe the transition for children in to the centre is much easier when they are familiar with their new environment. We suggest that you visit with your child at least two times before they start so they have a chance to get to know their new teachers and environment. Visits prior to the first drop off will help your child settle easier.

Enrollement conditions

Minimum enrolment is 2 days. Nappies and full meals are provided. A non-refundable enrolment fee of $50 is required at the time of enrolment to secure your child’s space. Two weeks’ notice is required when terminating enrolment. A 10% discount is applicable to your eldest child’s fees if you have two or more children attending Rainbow Kids.
