Why Rangi Ruru Pre-School?
There is nothing more important to a parent than ensuring that their child is nurtured and supported to learn and grow. Rangi Ruru Pre-School knows the importance of a great start for children and values the role parents and the community play to ensure our children flourish.
Rangi Ruru Pre-School is a small not-for-profit, family-oriented, community based education and care centre located in the attractive grounds of Rangi Ruru Girls’ School in Merivale, Christchurch. All teaching staff are fully qualified, registered teachers specialising in the care and education of boys & girls aged from 2 years to school entry.
As part of the Rangi Ruru Girls’ School community the children have numerous opportunities, resources and facilities available to them that other centres may not be able to provide. Use of the fully equipped gymnasium, library (with dedicated preschool area), art studios, music suites & the Merivale Lane Theatre, science suites, 3 D and digital media resources, large playing field and artificial turf areas are just a few of the resources that add depth and complexity to what we can offer each child during their learning journey.
Rangi Ruru Pre-School is situated in a spacious and comfortable house, which was remodelled to accommodate up to 30 children and our fully registered teaching staff.
Located in the beautiful grounds of Rangi Ruru Girls’ School means that the Pre-school also has access to the full facilities of the school including library, gymnasium, music & dance suites, dance studio, art studio, 3D and digital technologies, field and artificial turf. No additional cost is required of families for use of the facilities and resources.
Working alongside teachers from the Rangi Ruru Girls’ School, we can access resources and teaching expertise to follow your child’s interest.
We recognise that giving children the very best start in life is essential for all parents. Rangi Ruru Pre-School not only cares for children but partners with parents to ensure that their children become part of a community that is equally invested in their future. We do this by:
- Keeping parents informed
- Working in collaboration
- Putting happiness at the centre of everything we do
- Ensuring a safe and secure environment
- Providing the best early childhood education for your child
Your children’s education and welfare are our main priorities.
