Transition to School
Like you, we want the best for your child. So we don’t compromise on safe, supportive, care and education. Our team works hard to ensure your family receives the highest standard of care for your weekly fee, which includes:
- a generous annual leave allowance
- a nutritious midday meal, prepared fresh at the centre daily – so you won’t need to pack kai
- healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks to fuel your child’s play and learning
- our Positive Parenting program – offering tips, advice and support for every family
Because every child has different needs, we ask that you or whānau supply your child’s own bottles, formula and nappies for each day.
If you would like to learn more about our fees, enrolment schedules or space availability, please let us know. We’re happy to talk though any questions or provide whatever information you may need, to help you make the best decision for your child and your family.
What’s the first step?
Whether you’re looking at childcare for the first time or considering alternatives to your current arrangements, why not pop in for a visit when it works for you, or simply call us to set up a time. And because your child’s wellbeing and potential is our focus, please bring them along. We’d love to meet them, too, and introduce them to our safe, friendly world of fun and discovery.
Why choose our centre?
Offering safe, loving care and learning since 2011, Kindercare Rangiora was established to cherish your child from infancy until they are ready for primary school. Our friendly team are genuinely committed to building a warm, nurturing and loving relationship with your child, your family and whānau.
At our daycare centre, your child will be cared for with other tamariki at a similar age and stage of development, in a room that seamlessly flows into an outdoor play area. Each space is intentionally planned to provide the affectionate care and innovative learning best suited for your child’s individual needs.
Our team want to hear about your aspirations for your child, your childcare needs and important details about your family. The more we know and understand about you and your child, the better we’re able to respond to them in our care.
Our care and learning
Like you, we want your child to feel settled when they’re spending time away from you. That’s why you’ll find our care environments to be calm and flexible, so your child can enjoy their day and learn at their own pace. We’ll also partner with you to ensure we provide supportive, loving care and education in the right way for your child, while nurturing a reciprocal, trusted relationship with them.
Kiwi and Tūī Rooms (Infants and Toddlers Rooms)
We understand the importance of ensuring your infant or toddler feels safe and cherished, with a strong sense of wellbeing and belonging. That’s why our rooms are designed to offer nurturing care, along with opportunities to explore and learn in a calming, sensory-rich environment. Much like our partnership with parents, family and whānau – we are committed to building a loving, trusting and respectful relationship with your pēpi and toddler, while engaging them in an age-appropriate setting where they experience joy and discovery.
Pūkeko Room (Preschool Room)
Affectionate interactions, building friendships and an enthusiasm for learning are essential for your preschooler to feel settled, happy and curious to learn about the world around them. And our Kaiako will help them every step of the way.
Our safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere allows your child to enjoy play-based and small-group learning both indoors and out, helping them to expand their interests while building social skills. And whether your child needs a bit of quiet time in a peaceful corner, or chooses to be actively exploring outside with friends, they have the opportunity to do so, along with heaps of cuddles and affection from us! We’re here to ensure your child feels loved, respected and at home in our care.
Kōtuku Room (Transition to School Room)
Starting primary school is a time of big change for your child. Our comprehensive Transition to School program will give you peace of mind that your preschooler will be developing their self-management and organisational skills, self-confidence and familiarity with the kura environment, that will ensure a smoother transition into school.
Tamariki love our ‘You Can Do It’ program, which is a play-based approach to helping them to develop their social and emotional skills, including organisation, persistence and resilience. Like you, we’re here to help your child feel safe, supported and confident as they approach this exciting new chapter of learning.
Our world of outdoor play
At Kindercare Rangiora, we understand how beneficial outdoor play is to your child’s learning, growth and of course, enjoyment. That’s why we offer safe, separate outdoor spaces for each age and stage of your child’s development.
Our infants and toddler area is filled with sensory-rich activities that both challenge and encourage them to explore, discover and take safe risks. And for our preschoolers, you’ll find they have time and space for active play and learning, which includes challenging obstacles and other equipment designed to encourage and extend their growth and autonomy over their bodies..
So no matter what age or stage your child is at, our playgrounds are intentionally designed for adventures, tactile exploration, and safe risk experiences, through fun-filled play.
