Ruahine Kindergartens is funded by the Ministry of Education on a per-child, per-hour basis. These funds are used to pay teachers and support staff, and cover a portion of kindergarten running costs. This, together with investments, successful grants applications and the generous assistance of families, communities and businesses is reinvested to provide safe, purpose-built learning environments for inspiring young minds.
Our property portfolio is substantial, owning all kindergarten buildings, with the exception of our leashed head office in Taonui Street, Palmerston North. RKA owns the land of six kindergartens and leases land for the other 19 from local and central government.
We run significant capital works projects, regularly replace play equipment and use a lot of learning resources and office supplies. We like working with preferred suppliers and contractors and often purchase in bulk. We also continuously review our property development, building, maintenance and insurance needs. If you’d like to create a mutually beneficial relationship with us, then we invite you to get in touch.
