Students with children

Eastwest College welcomes students with children. Many families come through our courses and children adapt well to the environment and enjoy the community of international children.

Infants & Pre-schoolers

Rainbows Early Childhood Centre is located on the college campus and an ideal solution to the challenge of parents studying and meeting the social and developmental needs of their children.

The hourly rate for children from 6 months to 2 years is $5.15 per hour.
Children from 3 to 4 years old have 20 hours of childcare subsided by the NZ Government. There is a Rainbows charge of $1 per hour for children in this age group.
There is a minimum enrolment period of at least 2 sessions per week, on different days, for all children. This promotes better education and development as children are more settled and have a greater sense of belonging at Rainbows.

Primary School and Intermediate

The nearest school to the college campus is Gordonton School which caters for children from year 1 to 8 (ages 5 to 13).

Hamilton Christian School is 13km from the College. They receive children from Year 1 upwards and operate a fee-paying system.

There are other schools for this age group within 10-15 minutes drive of the college and we can provide information about these on request.
