Our History

Rangi Ruru Pre-School opened in 1989 to provide a community based, high quality care and education programme to children and their families.

The Pre-School is a cherished part of the Rangi Ruru Girls’ School family and operated by the school’s Board of Governors.

We pride ourselves on providing respectful and strong relationships, an engaging environment, supporting individual children’s learning and a focus on partnership with families.

Our staff ratios and programme provide children with diverse learning pathways and opportunities in small, intimate groups.

Rangi Ruru Preschool has a commitment to high quality practice using up to date educational research and theory as the basis for all we do.  We are involved in mentoring trainee teachers, which also includes our unique relationship with two Danish Universities, whose trainee teachers come to us for 6 month placements each year.
