Rainbow Preschool is a community based, non-profit, Christian Early Childcare Centre that is licensed by the Ministry of Education.

Welcome to Rainbow Preschool

At Rainbow we are more more than just a place for early childhood education—we’re your partner in family support and empowerment!

Our dedicated and qualified educators at Rainbow Preschool are committed to fostering holistic development in our children. Through our play-based and self-select programs, carefully crafted to enhance, extend, and challenge children’s thinking and learning, we provide both individual and group experiences.

Rainbow Preschool is a Family Support centre where we extend our support beyond normal early childhood education. Our Family Support Programmes include a variety of initiatives such as Mum & Me Dates, Who Let The Dads Out (WLTDO), informative Parent Education Workshops, and Mums and Bubs groups. These offerings are designed to strengthen family bonds, provide valuable resources, and empower parents in their journey of nurturing and guiding their children.

Our Philosophy

All children are born with God given potential and we seek to provide a Christian environment that enhances their mana and supports their ongoing learning.

We acknowledge the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and implement these into our daily practice recognising the unique status of tangata whenua in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our learning community reflects diversity, and we want all tamariki/children to be secure in their identity, language and culture. This will support them to live confidently in a rapidly changing world having the creative and resilient skills to thrive.

Our Purpose

To provide high-quality, child-centred education and care that is equally accessible to the entire community, both economically and socially, offered in an atmosphere of Christian love and acceptance. Our aim is to enrich the lives of children who attend, as well as those of their families.

Our Values

  • Manaakitanga – creating an environment of respect through consultation and equitable practices 
  • Whanaungatanga – building a strong foundation of relationships based on partnership and participation 
  • Whakamana – empowering all tamariki, whānau and kaiako to reach their highest potential 
  • Aroha – embracing a caring environment
