This kindergarten is amazing! My son has been attending for the past 8-9 months and the changes I have seen in him in that time are incredible.
He started out as a shy boy who had trouble communication verbally as his speech was not very clear. The opportunities Ranui kindy have given him have transformed him into a confident and sometimes boisterous boy. He has learned to play nicely and how sharing with other children helps to build friendships. I love seeing how all the children encourage each other, whether it is telling others they have done well or encouraging them in situations where they are not sure of new experiences.
His speech and communication have improved remarkably. He is speaking in full sentences and telling all kinds of stories.
The children at Ranui are wonderful and always happy. They have a massive variety of toys, equipment and books that keep them busy. The outside area they have is fantastic with a big sandpit, swings, slides and quite a few balance bikes. The teachers are great at changing the outside equipment so there is something different each day.
The teachers at the Kindy is what really makes the kindy great. They are the most patient and caring ladies. They encourage every child to try new experiences, have fun while learning and they know every child so well individually. I like how they document what your child has been learning and they are great at informing parents with everything happening.
“When the new head teacher Jenny started I was so impressed with all the plans she had for improving their play areas and changing things around, so the kids don’t get bored with the same thing each day.
All the teachers are so friendly, helpful, caring and compassionate. Also, they are so easy to talk to about anything. The kids at Ranui are so lucky to have these amazing teachers. They go above and beyond for very child they teach, and I am so glad I chose to send my son there.”
“Ranui Kindergarten teachers make everyone feel welcome. Great teachers. Lots of different activities for the children to do. Each child is made to feel special.”
“I would recommend Ranui Kindergarten to any one as I have found them to be helpful in the hard times. My daughter and son have both enjoyed being at Ranui and they both have learned a lot before they went to school. They learned sharing with others, fear play, taking turns and how to write their names and making friends. I also will be sending my other son to Ranui Kindergarten when he is old enough so he to can have the same experience. I believe Ranui to be one of the best kindergartens in Timaru.”
“When I called Ranui Kindy for the first time, Jenny answered straight away she was very friendly and welcoming, she made me feel completely at ease. Jenny offered to meet with me straight away and the following week Emmerson started at Ranui. As a very anxious mother, my son starting kindy for the first time had me in quite a panic, quickly though, all my worries were put to rest. The kindy is a clean fun inviting environment. The broad range of activities was impressive. Each of the staff approached me and introduced themselves and always took the time to inform me how his day was. I’m delighted I chose Ranui Kindergarten.”
