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

Our early childhood centre, Rainbows, 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. It exists to provide the community with quality childcare and education in a safe and loving environment, based on Christian beliefs and values.

Its children and the staff are prayed for regularly asking blessing and protection from God, and that children will develop a healthy understanding of the world and each other through activities and interactions, through prayer, songs and exploring their creativity.

Parents should contact the manager on office@rainbows.org.nz as soon as the college has notified them of their acceptance at Eastwest College, to prioritise their child’s/childrens’ names on the Rainbows’ role.

Please check the Rainbows Early Childhood website for up-to-date fees.
