Don't take our word for it...see what our families have to say about us...

Mixed age group is a beautiful aspect


The mixed age groups is one of the beautiful aspects that I value about RCCK. The older children learning to be a caring Tuakana and the teina or younger children aspiring to be like their positive role models. This is always exampled so well at the centre. The mixed age philosophy provides a more natural, traditional approach and, with so many big corporate centres, around a somewhat unique practice that highlights the need for children to grow and learn in a holistic environment.




We loved the family feel...

We chose RCCK for our daughter  because we loved the family feel we got from the centre from the very first visit, the teachers are very passionate, it’s 

not just a job for them. They show this in the learning experiences they provide. They are all amazing!   It’s is a very calm centre, our first visit there ou

r daughters eyes popped with excitement at their outdoor play area and felt comfortable with everyone right away. She really loves attending and has made lots  of friendships that were created there with all the social skills she has learned. We have already enrolled her little brother to start there soon!

The Team...genuinely care about the children

We cannot speak highly enough of the centre and how much our children enjoy their time here. We find the teachers to be always friendly, approachable and enthusiastic. Both our children  love coming in the gate each day and are always greeted personally by the teachers with a big smile. The team are always professional and genuinely care about the children. They take the time to find out about each child and what makes them tick. RCCK is such an integral part of our family's life. It continues to play such a big role for our daughter as she grows and has been instrumental in getting our eldest boy ready for school. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this centre to anyone.


Staff...always meet children on their own unique journey

We cannot praise the efforts, attitude, knowledge and skill of the RCCK team highly enough. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude and will always be grateful for the particular interest they took in our son's life. Our second son has developed his social, emotional and learning skills so well. Staff have the knowledge, creativity and passion to always meet children on their own unique journey and find a way to inspire, guide and engage them. It seems no two children are approached in the same way. They even alerted us to a speech delay which we hadn't noticed. Through their quick action we have sought the right professional input which has helped greatly.



A credit to you

I have observed your children walking past my driveway several times, they are so well behaved, a credit to you all. 



If you are looking for childcare in 2024 I cannot recommend RCCK enough!


I second this recommendation. Our 4 year old loves it and little brother will be there too when I'm ready!



RCCK provides high quality care and education

The staff are well qualified, experienced and passionate about nurturing young minds. They provide a wrap around service for whanau supporting families with tools and strategies they can implement in their home to support their tamaiti creating consistency between their environments. RCCK fosters an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity and encourages children to learn and grow together regardless of their backgrounds.


Everything just felt so right

I love Rotorua Community Creche and Kindergarten. My girl has been there for 3 weeks and it really does feel like a second home to her. All of the teachers are so pleasant and caring. I was supposed to check out a number of kindys/daycares before enrolling, but as soon as we walked into this one everything just felt so right and we enrolled her that day.


It's hard to leave at the end of the day!

Many people told me that I would just ge a feeling when I walked into a centre. They were right, and I felt it from walking into RCCK. The teachers were immediately warm and welcoming and the Centre Manager was informative and answered all my questions as a nervous mum navigating going back to work. Spending time outside is important to our family and RCCK has a great playground and encourages their children to play and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. Teachers help the children explore and find their limits on the equipment while in a safe environment. My daughter always has a story to tell, art or baking to share that they have done during the day. She adores her teachers and it is wonderful to see.


For our family it's been a second home

Most parents would shop around a few centres, weigh up the pros and cons of them all then decide on one. But it felt so right, my daughter and I after only a few visits already felt part of the creche whanau and that's what was most important.

Rotorua Community Creche & Kindergarten is a lot of things, but for our family it's been a second home, a place of learning, growth, fun, special friendships and memories. As a working parent you want to do right by your child and be there for it all but it's just not possible. My partner and I have huge thanks to give RCCK for who our daughter is today, whilst her knowledge and nature has been learnt both at home and creche, huge input to this has been thanks to our loving teachers.
