Our warm and nurturing teachers welcome families and children in our home-like setting -  Ahakoa he iti he pounamu – although it is small, it is greenstone.

We believe Rabbit Patch is a special place for children and their families where they feel safe and settled. Our beautiful environment helps children feel comfortable and relaxed. Our unique atmosphere is warm, welcoming and nurturing. Our commitment is to provide for the specific needs of each individual child. We celebrate our multicultural learning community respecting the individual identity of each child and family.

The safety and security of your children is our top priority. So much so, that we have intentionally designed our preschools with privacy as a priority. Families can be assured that the children are able to flourish.  Transitioning from home to preschool can be daunting for both the child and their parents. Your child’s happiness is as important to us as it is to you. We want to look after your child at preschool as well as you do at home. To make this happen we provide a transitioning process to Rabbit Patch that is flexible, positive and respectful for everyone. Each child’s transition will be handled sensitively and skillfully with the primary aim to help them settle and flourish in our care. We will follow your cues and take this journey together. We are here for you and your child.
