Hours and operation
Centre operation and opening hours
Operating hours for children
Rangi Ruru Preschool operates under a full-day licence, and children are enrolled for a minimum of 3 hours, twice a week. The centre does not provide care and education on a casual basis.
Opening hours for children
Monday to Friday 8.15am - 4.15pm.
The centre does not provide lunches, but children staying over lunch hours bring their own lunch. Morning and afternoon tea is provided. The pre-school is a recipient of the Healthy Hearts Award from the Heart Foundation.
The pre-school is a peanut-free zone and for health and safety reasons we ask that peanuts, including peanut butter are excluded from children’s lunchboxes.
Age range of children
The centre caters for up to 35 children from age 2 to 5 years. Each child has a designated teacher. This teacher is responsible for your child's profile book which provides an important record of the child's pre-school experiences.
The preschool is closed for statutory holidays and fees are not charged. The centre operates through primary school term breaks, with the exception of the December/January break.
