about rhyme and reason

Rhyme and Reason is a privately owned and operated Early childhood Education centre located in Opawa. We are licensed for children aged between 3 months and 6 years. Our beautifully renovated villa is located in the heart of the Opawa community, surrounded by local schools, shops, churches, and close to the Heathcote / Ōpāwaho river at the base of the Cashmere Hills.

Rhyme and Reason boast three individual classrooms with expansive adjoining outdoor environments. There are separate large and well-shaded outdoor areas for younger and older children, where age-appropriate and challenging physical activities will be available for all our tamariki to explore.

We pride ourselves on offering a home away from home and strive to provide our tamariki with a “best of both worlds” experience, by delivering them the finest elements of both home and preschool life. We offer hot meals and snacks to all children.

Our qualified, experienced and professional team offer an atmosphere that nurtures a child’s interest, stimulates creativity and satisfies their innate need to explore and discover the world around them.  We strive to meet the needs of the child, the parents, and the wider whānau by providing high-quality childcare enabling parents to feel secure in the knowledge that their child is well cared for, confident and happy.

At Rhyme and Reason, relationships and open communication are at the core of what we do. We encourage all of our whānau to be as involved as they would like to be in their child’s learning and development. We have a  beautifully nurturing environment, where children are empowered to explore, be challenged and take risks, alongside having a great sense of belonging, as they explore their current interests.
